    I have been working at NCSA Next College Student Athlete full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    NCSA has always been a fantastic place to work, but this past year especially- the executive team and senior leadership made moves during a pandemic to support every level of employee. Proud to call NCSA a home.

    Cons

    Currently full time remote & miss being in the office (but another example of having employees health as their top priority)

    I have been working at NCSA Next College Student Athlete full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Leadership - Manager is understanding, helpful and interested in seeing growth from employees. Always willing to help out and educate with lower-level issues while trying motivate employees to take on more responsibility and increase their knowledge base Access to tools - IT Team constantly wants its team members to improve their skills. It gives access to an impressive amount of training courses and lots of documentation for solving problems. Respect - Across the company, the users are polite and respectful of the IT team's time and efforts. Work Life Balance - Almost no work is take-home or afterhours in this role, management is very understanding of needing to take time for mental health, doctor visits, sickness with unlimited PTO. Compensation - Offers market value for this position and a yearly bonus that is earned by hitting certain goals that you create at the beginning of each year. Additionally, you can be recognized throughout the year for great work and receive monetary rewards. Remote first - Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the company has become remote first, meaning that they try to emphasize work from home whenever possible. The team created a wonderful environment for us to communicate with users and solve issues from this remote setting.

    Cons

    Communication with other departments could be more proactive on both sides, allowing IT to catch underlying issues before they begin to build up negatively.
