    They want you to have to many assignments for one person to keep up with. Salary pay is low.

    Give raises and bonuses. Get your management team on the same page. Stop trying to have your management team do everything.

    I worked at Opportunity Village full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to make a difference and get swept up in the clients' enthusiasm. It's a job that will put a smile on your face every day! If you make it past 90 days, you will be okay.

    Cons

    Little to no support from leadership. Chances are you will be blind sided by being let go just before you hit 90 days, without being coached or guided as to what you can do to keep your job.

    Advice to Management

    Coach and develop your employees. Take responsibility for your recruits and guide them when it looks like they might be off course. Don't be so quick to dismiss people who really want to be there.

    I have been working at Opportunity Village full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You bond with your coients and potentially your coworkers, which is great.

    Cons

    There are maybe three good management teams, and you're not likely to be placed under them.

    Advice to Management

    Retrain the TL's to know how to communicate with the PSPs. Half the time, they leave us to find for ourselves off-campus, and don't encourage cooperation among staff members.

    The OVIPS are great and the premise of the company is admirable.

    Cons

    Corrupt executive board and management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and do the right thing!

    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.
