    Pros

    Getting a job at this company is not very difficult or atleast it wasnt difficult around the time I started working here. For the most part majority of members seems to be welcoming at times. You can grow in this company if you wanted to. Working with the disability population can be challenged but there are good fun moments and memories here.

    Cons

    They do not do any bonuses or annual salary increases or pay based off experience and education. Staff are not very well appreciated at times. The company seems to have corruption and conspiracy in the administration part.

    Advice to Management

    End conspiracy, the corruption and show staff appreciation through gifts, bonuses etc...

    Pros

    Most of the employees have been at NCC for years, family environment, good pay

    Cons

    Constant change in leadership, management does not listen to the employees

    Advice to Management

    Since 2006, the company has had 5-6 CEO's. The constant change in leadership has taken a toll on the organization. It used to do much for the community but the new staff has no real knowledge about the DC community that they are trying to serve. It is a shame because the organization has done such great work in the past.

    Pros

    Great place to work closely with people with developmental disabilities. You can make a difference here.

    Cons

    Leadership is scattered in their focus. Everything happens behind closed doors and is sprung on the staff. Many direct care and lower paying positions have been eliminated in favor of higher paying leadership positions. Leadership has little contact or relationship with the staff or the people the agency serves.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people who work for you. Pay attention to the people you serve. Leadership needs to get their hands dirty and get into the buildings and work.
