I have been working at Opportunity Village

Pros

Here you are given the opportunity to support persons with developmental disabilities. The clients really need honest, caring staff who are willing and able to help them improve their daily living skills.

Cons

It can be a rewarding experience for staff willing to endure the stifling management which seems to be ever-diligent to punish you for seemingly minor "offences" and rarely rewards the staff for a good job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of constantly stifling new ideas, be open to and actually consider the ideas of new staff. It seems that in Opportunity Village, there is a "core" of "old-timers" who are now in their leadership positions not based upon merit or training or background, but simply because they have put in the time at the Village. This has resulted in the Village remaining stagnant and backward-looking ( remember the "good old days? ) instead of vibrant and cutting edge. The clients deserve MUCH more than they are getting. Oh, there is SO MUCH more the Village could be doing to provide excellent services to our clients, but too many upper management are either incapable or unwilling to change enough to allow the Village to evolve and grow.

    I worked at Opportunity Village full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Organization is fun to work for and has a lot of motivated people to help a great cause. The hiring process runs smooth and seems organized. Very friendly....

    Cons

    No raises for employees since I started and even after I left....they push volunteering big time and raise more money every year but yet still haven't put anything towards the employees for years. Politics play a big role in this organization so, beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You could keep your good loyal employees if you really at least once a year give them the raise they deserve. Raise the bar for yourself and your employees.
