Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary2 February 2017
The Calgary John Howard society is a forward thinking agency that builds strength and trust between and among employees, management, clients, community and stakeholders. It is a privilege to work with this group and I would highly recommend involvement with the agency from prospective employers, donors and stakeholders.

The most difficult part of the job is watching clients who really wish to succeed fall down due to lack of community and government supports. On the flip side, the most enjoyable part is watching people succeed, both staff ad clients.

The management is strong and very staff supportive. I learned a great deal about management, professionalism, empathy, the culture of non--judgmental thinking and what most people need to lead a healthy and successful existence.
Pros
Excellent working conditions
Cons
Long hours as in any not for profit serving agency
