I have been working at Ozark Guidance Center full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The clients/patients are in need of help.

Cons

Hired for one job which changed after 3 1/2 weeks. Then changed again after 5 weeks, and kept on changing. While my skills are recognized, they seem to be used as an excuse. There does not seem to be a plan for the overall business. Just because a place is non profit/not for profit does not mean that they should not have a plan. Perhaps a plan that is grounded from the roots up, not the top down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication is unclear and despite constant claims to be transparent, this organization is darkly tinted at best. Please stop driving out the competent, hard working employees while keeping incompetent ones. Common comment from individuals within the NWA mental health community- "Ozark Guidance. I worked there once. Got out as soon as I could." Then I find out that they have worked for current mental health provider for 10+ years- feeling stressed out because of the job, however rewarded by helping the patients, and the employer's appreciation shown (not by financial increase) by daily positive interaction.

    I have been working at Ozark Guidance Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team of co-workers, decent benefits

    Cons

    Organization is continually making major, sudden changes to productivity expectations, job description, PTO allowance, etc. They then spend the next few months working out all the details of how these changes affect employees. No pay increase or bonus in 5 years. No advancement opportunities in MHPP position.
