NCG, Inc in Trumbull, CT is a firm that prides themselves on providing opportunities for their employees to grow personally and professionally in a team-based environment. We decided to see how one of their new employees felt about his experience thus far to see if the stories matched up. Spoiler alert: they did.
Gregory Benson, from Southport, CT has been with NCG, Inc for under a month, which, as he told us, ‘is hard to believe because I already feel a part of the team.’ He joined the team with a Bachelors from Sacred Heart University and is currently a few classes away from achieving his MBA.
“There was a multitude of reasons that I accepted the job at NCG, Inc,” explained Gregory. “I first met with Jolene through the interview process and realized that she is intelligent, ambitious and professional, all while being personable and funny. I am a believer that we buy into people more than ideas and it didn’t take me long to realize she was someone I wanted to be led by.”
Here were a few of the other reasons Gregory decided to pursue a career with the Trumbull firm:
The opportunity to control his own fate – “I came from a large corporation where it felt like my long-term goals were jeopardized by internal politics. The chance to feel as though my hard work would directly correlate to results was refreshing, especially when a timeline of my success was clearly laid out by the company. It was also made clear to me that personal development was just as important as anything else that the job entails, which was key for me,” explained Gregory.
The energy he felt during his interviews – Gregory told us that was enough to convince him that he would fit in at NCG, Inc. “I have always been the one running around and yelling with passion whether the sun was rising or setting. While sitting in the lobby I would always hear people shouting with passion as they pumped themselves up in the morning (as I’m sure our neighbors love so early in the morning.)”
It was a chance to be around like-minded people – “I’m dedicated to building a successful career irrespective of the sacrifices it will take and I knew at NCG, Inc I wouldn’t be alone in that quest. I have found it challenging to find people that want to work really hard,” added Gregory.
“Iron sharpens iron, and I knew that being around motivated, hard-working people would only make me better.”
Gregory also discussed how the marketing techniques used at NCG, Inc are not flashy but are extremely effective. “They teach straightforward, disciplined marketing approaches that anyone can learn if they are willing to study and make the sacrifices necessary to succeed. That being said, I’ve learned these systems to the point that they are nearly thoughtless reflexes, which I consider an accomplishment,” added Gregory. He also highlighted the structured and detail campaign and client product knowledge he has gained in such a short amount of time, proving the training methods are working well!
As we wrapped up our time getting to know Gregory, he told us his goals moving forward. They started with continuing to grow personally and he is confident that he is in the best place to do so. This is what he said in regards to advancing within the company; “I am excited for my promotion to a leadership role. I want to be someone that can set an example on the team for future members to follow. Down the road, I am excited to develop my own team. The same way that my managers are dedicated to helping us grow, I want to serve my team, which will be extremely rewarding to me.”
