Small Local Consulting Group - Disingenuous and Body Shop Practice
Principal Technical Consultant (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – April 2, 2015
Overall I would have to say that this company tries to put on a face of a small, employee caring, company with plenty of social activities to pull the consultants together. Underneath the covers and promises of tenure; however, the will lay off consultants who are rolled off projects very quickly.
They do not enforce contracts between themselves and their clients especially related to time and materials so consultants work putting in a great deal on non-elective overtime for which the clients refuse to support work beyond 40 hours a week and this leaves the consultant uncompensated in any way for the work preformed. It is an extremely critical point to argue when NRC has employee compensation based on an annual base plus a percentage of the revenues resulting from the hours worked on a project.
The company is totally client focused to a fault. As is the case with some clients, they retain the consultant and even extend them for the good work being done; but, then when their standard period of project participation is met; they will often rate a person poorly to justify their reason for rolling a person off a project. NRC views this negatively and does little in the way of considering the consultants view of the situation.
All in all, it was a very poor employment experience and one that I would not return to as a W2 employee. I would only consider work as a contractor.
