terrible environment for Aboriginals to work and succeed in, it's oppressive.
aboriginal employment readiness worker (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, ABNovember 30, 2015
As much as they think they are helpful, only a couple of programs are actually helpful. A high amount of office politics is in play there. The program director was replaced and my position was replaced. The new program director sexually harassed the new person replacing me and she quit. No one in higher positions believed her. Not a good environment. At all. No one believed me for 10 weeks.. from that environment I suffered PTSD and refuse to work for another non profit organization.
Pros
helping clients to be successful was what I loved to do.
Cons
Too much office politics and oppression, not enough staff support. things get ignored easily there and not dealt with.

Just another day at Boyle Street
cleaner (Former Employee) –  Boyle Street, ABDecember 11, 2015
I wake up to the sound of a voice calling my name, I wake up knowing it'll be the happiest day of my life if I could just hold her one more time, I wake up knowing that on that day of our reunion I'll be lying in a casket.
