    I worked at NBN Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is a Dunkin Donuts in walking distance. People that work in your own department on your own level are nice for the most part because you are all miserable together.

    Cons

    Everything else. The managers and the owner are awful. Benefits are the worst, and they don't warn you about them before you are hired. Not bad if you don't mind micro-managers and things changing every day I guess.

    Advice to Management

    They wouldn't take advice anyway so why bother.

    Pros

    Not many. If you are self indulgent, you can vote for yourself to receive an award for being a good employee and win a gift card. Most employees are nice people, at the expense of being competent workers.

    Cons

    The only reason that there are any positive reviews here is that upper management propositions people to write in good reviews to balance all the terrible ones (all of which are all completely truthful). This is the kind of place that you have nightmares about even after you move on to another job. Every department is micromanaged awfully, it’s very difficult to get work done, and there is no real training in place... to help departments or individuals understand what others do. Upper management thrives on keeping their employees in the dark, making people feel powerless with a watchful eye. The owner of the company is mean spirited and does not even try to present a good natured facade. If you have an issue and you bring it up in a professional manner you will reprimanded. You will be “written up” like a child if you do not follow their outrageous policies to a T. Communication is extremely problematic or nonexistent, especially for upper management, who feel that the rules do not apply to them. As one previous reviewer pointed out so precisely “The owner hand selects unqualified managers due to their willingness to be loyal to her and perform any dirty deed necessary to keep the jobs that they are unqualified for.” Most employees lack basic computer skills which make simple tasks and communication very difficult. You can expect to be underpaid and take on responsibilities that have nothing to do with your position (and you are to do this without question or you will be belittled until you are forced to quit). This is not being “negative”, it’s being honest so that others know what they are truly in for if they choose to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and do not punish them for trying to bring about helpful changes. Do not project an atmosphere of fear mongering. Inform employees when major changes are taking place instead of giving the impression that all company information is sensitive. Have workshops to improve communication and basic computer skills. Include employees in meetings that pertain to them.

    Pros

    Make your own schedule, good experience for family therapy, family systems, working with children that struggle in many aspects.

    Cons

    Pay sucks, management is unsupportive and not qualified, use your own vehicle in the field, working late hours to accommodate families, on call for crisis 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified people. About 5-7 people quit in a 3 month span due to disorganization.

    I worked at NBN Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people I worked with were amazing. We were a very close knit group of people who thoroughly enjoyed working together as a team

    Cons

    Overworked with unrealistic expectations on how much one person is capable of achieving. Difficult to advance in positions and even more difficult to obtain a raise in pay

    Advice to Management

    Consider the turnover rate and value those who value what they do

    Pros

    Great people. Important work. Home care is such a rewarding thing, it is nice to work at a place where they really care about the patients and employees. I like the champion cards, getting and giving them makes a fun work environment.

    Cons

    Small company health insurance is expensive. I know lots of companies have those high deductible plans though so this is better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Coworkers were nice to work with.

    Cons

    Very nasty upper "management". Everything you do is micromanaged. They talk down to you. They will scold at you in the hall and completely try and embarrass you (when in reality, they are the ones looking like the fool). Very rude. Childish behavior. Spoiled brat managers. Unprofessional. Spiteful. Disrespectful. Insulting. Degrading. Suspicious of everyone. No trust in the employees they HIRE. (And no, I am not... a disgruntled employee, these are just truths.) Mostly all the positive reviews on the site are from managers trying to do damage control. Employees have been asked to leave positive reviews. If owner is having a bad day she will take it out on EVERY SINGLE EMPLOYEE. It's so nasty. All her aggression is put on the kind employees. High turnover. Everyone wants out. They treat grown adults like children. Some employees have to send an email EVERYDAY of what they will be doing. They are there WORKING for YOU. Why do you think they come in everyday 8:30-5! To work. They act like you're doing something else all the time. God forbid you talk to someone. You'll get scolded. You'll have the owner creep up behind you and ask you EMBARRASSING questions like "What are you talking about?" comments made such as "Oh, you must not be busy". PEOPLE COMMUNICATE. That's how you build positive morale. This is not a slave camp. You're expecting to sit at your desk the entire day and NOT MOVE and DONT SPEAK! Because if you are, thats gossiping and you must need more work. When you put notice in to leave, they will completely ignore you (even though you worked for them for all that time. Very rude, disrespectful, and childish) Save your sanity. Management makes it stressful for no reason at all. " Champions of Caring", yet they treat their employees like trash. Disgraceful

    Advice is for ones willing to work on and change their attitudes and behavior. Why would I waste my time when nothing will ever change? No advice.

    I worked at NBN Group

    Pros

    Some fine colleagues, a number of whom no longer work there.

    Cons

    A bit concerned after reading a review that said they give bad references. I worked very hard for them and am good at my work. I have not maligned them or their company in any way. I would hope they would respectfully follow suit as well.

    Advice to Management

    Please be respectful of people and their references.

    I worked at NBN Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you can survive at this company longer than two weeks, you will be able to work anywhere even a position in a third world country. Working here prepares you for the absolute worse position that you will ever work because you will never work any where that is worse.

    Cons

    The owner of the company is the most EVIL person you will ever face in your lifetime. She leads by fear and that's the worse kind of leadership. ALL managers are so afraid for their jobs that they will sell their soul to the devil and they do that every day that they walk in and perform the owners evil deeds. Every manger there is selected BECAUSE they are so under-qualified for their positions that they are... extremely willing to sell their soul to the devil every day to keep those positions. The owner hand selects unqualified managers due to their willingness to be loyal to her and perform any dirty deed necessary to keep the jobs that they are unqualified for. The owner is aware that management is unqualified and management are aware as well. THEY know, that's why they will do whatever it takes to hold on to their positions. Morals, ethics, qualifications are not a requirement for the managers as they were selected because they are unqualified, morally bankrupt and unethical. They are driven by the need to hold on to a position that they are unqualified for and the owner uses that to keep them in line AND this forces them to do whatever they have to do to perform her morally and ethically bankrupt deeds. There will be a FLOOD of new ratings to dispute this fact. There will be NEW reviews posted to say the people that write about this company are bitter, they were not qualified, they got fired and any other excuse that they will create to address the continued TRUTH that people post about them. The evil, unethical and morally bankrupt managers will scramble among their employees to force them to address this review but everyone that works there or has worked there in the past recognizes the truth in every TRUTHFUL and unfortunately negative review of this company. The truth is, whether you leave or get fired, you will feel better the first day that you NEVER have to step foot into this workplace again.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school, freshen your job skills, increase your intelligence level and then leave. The only reason you are stuck in this position is because you are unqualified for any other position. So, freshen your work skills, take some management courses so you will be qualified to compete in the real world for a new job. Work hard at this and maybe you will be able to face yourself in the mirror daily and forgive... yourself for all of the dirty deeds you've done in the name of keeping the job that you are unqualified for.
