    I worked at Conway Human Development Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Loved the clients. Excellent benefits. It's a great place to work if you have good coworkers who work together. Flexibility in how you get your work done, as long as it gets done on time. Ability to be outside and not stuck inside a building the whole shift. Great schedules for RNs, Monday through Friday with only occasional weekends and one holiday a year to work. Every other weekend for LPNs.

    Cons

    As with any large government employer, you will be understaffed at times and people will get hired that don't care.

    Advice to Management

    I think they do a great job with training. I miss working there and just left because my raise from LPN to RN was only 10%.

    Pros

    Clients are great. You will learn a lot, you will get attached.

    Cons

    There is no such thing as professional boundaries when it comes to clients. The center doesn't cover it in training and most of their workforce are undereducated. Management varies between teams and you will see things that will break your heart. You will never get a raise based on your performance.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your own guidelines, start sticking to them.

    I have been working at Conway Human Development Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits; health and retirement. Acceptable pay. Opportunities for bonuses. Work at your own pace. Not micromanaged. Residents will make your job worth it. Lots of experience gained. Absolutely amazing schedule for nurses and really appreciate no on call, allows for a chance to have a realistic work/life balance.

    Cons

    Archaic infrastructure - everything is done on paper. Leads to a slow process when it comes to nursing. Can miss information easily. Paper MARs make med pass slow and sometimes stressful; too much of a chance to make med errors. Outdated technology. Med rooms need to be updated for proper work environment. Getting tasks done in a timely manner can be cumbersome due to having to run around campus so much.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through when employees request something instead of making them hound you to get stuff done. Offer more competitive pay for nurses. Many nurses can get paid much more working at other facilities.

    I worked at Conway Human Development Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The clients are amazing. I loved seeing them every day and miss them very much. Staff development team is amazing.. it's just when you get to the units that it gets bad.

    Cons

    Staff are horrible and have bad attitudes. No respect what so ever. Don't come in as an RCSS off the street they will not train you. you have no authority to write staff up and when you need to house supervisor does not stand behind you at all. Shift coordinators are lazy and don't wanna come out to resolve issues when you need them but they want to bug you about little crap. Medical department neglects clients and tries to throw it on the staff. When you are the one doing your best they reprimand you and let the staff continue to work. Switchbord operators and HR staff are plain rude. Do not work here your life will be miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Ya'll need to be shut down your a poor excuse for a facility. I hope you are brought to justice!
