    Pros

    National Counseling Group offers great benefits to all employees and provides employment opportunities almost anywhere you are in the state of Virginia.

    Cons

    If you are full time and for some reason you drop below 30 direct hours a week for 4 weeks, you are dropped to part time and lose benefits. The pay is relatively low compared to other mental health companies.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay of employees and be more understanding if staff can't get 30 hours a week for 4 weeks due to clients not being willing to be seen.

    Pros

    Can talk a great game. Pay very well. Some of the staff are really great people who care about the services they provide.

    Cons

    Dishonest company with a lack of ethics. Don't listen to their staff and really don't care about them. Want everyone to follow the "NCG Way" - and if you question anything you are a problem. Management is cliquish, lie and manipulate and gossip about each other and everyone else. Controlling and manipulative and just plain horrible to work with. Have heard for years that they are unethical and slimy - witnessed it firsthand during my brief time with them. This is an agency that's all about the dollar.

    Advice to Management

    Already tried.

    Pros

    Independent working... and paperwork is almost common sense.

    Cons

    Must use PTO time to make up salary, even if company doesn't have clientele referrals to make minimum 30 hours. Must provide own computer for in-session paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    Support, support, support. Doing pretty good so far from my perspective.

    Do a better job communicating. I know you care, and would like more follow through.
