    Pros

    Helping hungry families. This is it! They do provide assistance to families and children in need. That is what you have to focus on. Management does a lot of wacky stuff.

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what they are doing. Donations are down. They are burning through cash reserves quite quickly. They are also spending money on non-essential improvements to the building. They have hired quite a few high dollar executives that have not an idea of what to do to get donations coming in. They do know how to spend money with outside vendors!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire an executive that will actually live in Oklahoma City. Many commute from out of state. This doesn't show commitment to the organization.

    Pros

    Flexiablity
    Great atmosphere - Christian based organization.
    Non for Profit making a difference in the world today. Very rewarding to know you have made a difference in a family or childs life.

    Cons

    Red tape - you have to go through alot to have things approved because it's a non for profit. HR is involved in alot of the organizations projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None to provide. I think they are on the right track. Keep up the good work. The employees love it here.

    Pros

    Good to work for good cause.

    Cons

    Terrible training. Leadership micro manages all the way down the chain. Upper management was belittling to lower staff. No good feedback--ever!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster your employees. Let your people do what they were hired to do without constantly micromanaging them.
