    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 Management

    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 a year)

    Pros

    Great people, great work environment. They have a very forgiving company as you try and figure how to best serve the clients. Benefits include health, dental, and vision.

    Cons

    No room for growth outside of getting a master's degree. The company refuses to give annual raises but will hire new employees with less experience for higher pay. Annual review often mean listening to how good you are and then an excuse for why they can't offer basic raises.

    Advice to Management

    Give out raises to the few committed employees you have before they find other careers.
