Poor Leadership
Counsellor (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABJune 22, 2015
What else can I say. Healthcare should not be politically driven nor should whimsical decisions and ideology be allowed into the system. Poor communication between front line staff and executives.

Service Worker I- Mat/Child- LDR (Current Employee), Medicine Hat, AlbertaAugust 9, 2014
Pros: relaxed and enjoyable environment
Cons: overnight shifts
As a service worker, I helped out the nurses majority of the time with stocking and errands. I've learned to deal with many different situations and how to show empathy in any situations. The management I worked for was amazing and would recommend working for them to anyone. The hardest part of the specific area I worked in was when we would lose patients, the most enjoyable part was working around all the new parents and working with the nurses on a one on one basis.

Mental Health Clinician (Current Employee), Calgary, ABMay 21, 2014
I work in a team that is enthusiastic and supportive to each other and the clientele we serve. it is varied and crisis orientated.

The hardest part of the job sometimes is letting clients know that sometimes you cannot do anything fro them apart form listen and advise.

It is a very autonomous position with active support from management.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the unpredictability of assessments which helps me keep fresh and up to date with current evidence based practices and and clinical knowledge
