What do you like about working at National Safety Council?
"The OT I have gotten out of working 7 days a week for 3 months straight."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Only interview with this company if we would like to work for DDC or Advocacy. They are the ONLY departments that are staffed. Every other department sees extreme cutbacks in EVERY aspect."
What don't you like about working at National Safety Council?
"The staff is extremely overworked. Most departments are extremely understaffed. There are way too many managers and too few worker bees. I believe that the CEOs do not listen to majority of their staff. I believe that the company is not honest. They lie to their members and stretch the truth about what is really going on at the council. IT is not supported by the Council well. It is hard to get ideas and procedures implemented. The staff does not receive the tools they need to complete their job."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Hire more worker bees. Listen to your staff, and work better with other departments. We are not in highschool anymore. There should not be clicks in the office."
"This used to be a good company to work for until the newest executive management team arrived several years ago. They terminated most of the company staff targeting the senior staff and the over fifty crowd. I don't understand why they did this because they were already making good profit for a non-profit organization. They created difficult six months reviews for the employees and basically found any reason possible to terminate the staff. The only possible reason this was done would be is to increase bonuses for executive team. A shocking heartless group here."
"The latest executive team is monstrous. Terminated most of the staff in the last several years. Targeting older, sickly, and especially staff with more than ten years. Did this through yelling and abusing staff and attempting to get them to quit. I understand they did not want to pay unemployment so they attempted to fire staff or get them to quit. This company was already making money. I believe the only reason they did this was increase bonuses for the executives."
"I worked at NSC for over twenty years and was happy until the new executive team arrived several years ago. That is when all the yelling and craziness started throughout the council. The management was given directive to terminate almost everyone by whatever means. They decided to have reviews every six months for the purpose of terminating staff and they managed to terminate all the senior staff and older and sickly employees for the executive team's personal gain."
"This is the worst company ever. People get yelled at by management and fired almost every day. Management only knows how to bully people. This has to be the most hated non-profit company that ever existed. Stay away from this place. Management is mean and crazy. They only want money. They should not be non-profit."
"This place has crazy turnover. Upper management yells at staff. I know of numerous people that were terminated for voting for Obama. This place has no stock holders. All the profits go in the pockets of the executive. Huge bonuses for a small non-profit. These people are vicious and have no soul."
"This is a complete mess of a company. Executive management are extreme right wing hate group that have terminated numerous staff for not agreeing with their extremist views. Turnover is extremely high. It is normal for executive management to abuse power and fire staff for any crazy reason. In the last several years they have terminated all of the best employees that have any seniority and they have also fired anyone older or sickly."
"I worked at this company for twelve years and all these bad reviews are true. The company top executives are evil extreme right wingers. I know of many good employees that were terminated because word got out that they voted for Obama. Shocking lack of ethics at this company. They would lie to staff, customers and members on a regular basis and falsify performance reviews. Do not join this organization."
"This has to be the worst company ever. Staff was forced to contribute to their charity "Friends Of Safety" under threat of being fired. Executive team would have managers falsify performance reviews to terminate staff for any crazy reason. They terminated almost all the company staff in short order, targeting the senior staff or anyone of not the best health. They fired almost all older or overweight people and they also targeted the minorities and all staff the were not white. They hired a token African American HR Director when discrimination lawsuits started coming in. This company does not have stockholders and they did not put profits into safety programs. All the profits for this company would go to the Executive team for their bonuses."
"This company was making record profit before they decided to terminate almost the entire company staff a few years ago and replace them with unqualified cronies. This company still has all the same management running this place today. These monsters still work here and all the hardworking people that built this place were terminated. It is not right that this place is still open. This place should be shut down immediately!!!"
"I am a black man that worked for the council for almost twenty years before being fired. They claim I used a cell phone while driving and fired me just like that. The truth is they fired all the black people at this place in the last few years because the management here is racist. They did recently hire a black woman HR Director. But she is only for show. I have several white friends that worked here that were also fired for voting for Obama. The most racist person here is the man that heads this company. I have heard a lot of bad stuff about him and his blond girlfriend that works under him. These are bad people."
"Why do so many people hate this company? Here is the solemn truth that I have witnessed. I have worked for many, many companies and I have never witnessed a more monstrous management team. Fired people because of race, age or ethnicity. Fired people, some of the best staff for no known reason. Forced staff to contribute to their charity on threat of termination. I witnessed yelling and terminations all over the place while I worked here. For just one example, one of the ladies in Accounting just lost her husband and was softly crying in grief. She was yelled at for crying and fired on the spot. I mean her husband just died! I was fired with a few other people in Accounting for voting for Obama. Almost all of these monsters still work at this company today!!"
"I am an African American woman and worked at this company for 35 years before I was fired with almost all the other African American people that worked here simply for the color of our skin. This occurred about five years ago. Executive team is extreme right wing hate group. All the profits go into the pockets of the egotistical executives that run this place. For this tiny non-profit the execs have offices as big as apartments on the top floor with several secretaries each. This company shows all that is wrong with America."
"This site has the most honest reviews on this company. When I worked at this company many of us were offered a half vacation day to lie and write a great review about this company from the mean man running this company. Many of us took the offer and you can see them on other review web sites. This is not a good company in the least. People get fired all the time and a lot of yelling happening all the time. Stay away from this place the management is horrible!!!."
"Many of us were fired from this company for many crazy reasons. A group of us in Accounting were fired for being Democrats. We were told, "I will not have any damn Liberals working for me" from one of the people running this company. He still works at this company today. Stay away from this place."
