We are a unique company with an extremely strong culture and sense of ownership. The following 5 values drive all of us every day in all our decisions and actions.


  1. It takes a Village – we are here for each other
  2. We are Warriors – we fight until we make it happen
  3. Life is Short – we choose to have a positive attitude and have fun
  4. We are Brave – we try new things and strive to be great
  5. OwnIt – we embrace responsibility because we are all owners


People that fit those core values love working at NCC (recently selected as one of The Philadelphia Inquirers Top Businesses to work) and the culture is truly unmatched. 

We are also an Employee Owned Company. What does that mean?  It means that employees accumulate shares in the company over time in a program called an ESOP.  Employees accumulate shares in the company over time. When e company does well and the share go up, the employees share in that reward. The best part of being an ESOP is that it drives an Ownership Culture, as every employee has a long-term stake in the outcome. Visit to learn more about ESOPs.

To help support the Ownership Culture, we have also developed a completely financially transparent company.  Every single person in the company has a number and a visible contribution to our profitability and reports on it weekly.  Through this program, employees can see how we are doing on both a short-term basis (where we share in the gains over our plan quarterly) and long term through the ESOP.  Visit to learn more. 

This is a salary position with benefits, health insurance, paid vacation, ESOP, bonus program, and 401K.
