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 Management

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.

    Pros

    The company does a lot of tangible good helping the community. The Las Vegas economy definitely benefits from having OV around.

    Cons

    A lot of the people in charge are a bit racist. Their recent correspondence dinner left a bad taste in my mouth after some comments regarding Ferguson.

    Advice to Management

    Take a smaller salary and let that money finish some of your current projects, like Sean's Park or the North campus.
