Excellent workplace to apply and develop skills in mental health nursing

Bias management and cliche office staff
Staff Clinician (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK1 May 2017
Work place bullying was not taken seriously by management.
Unsupervised office staff, take extended shopping breaks, rude, disrupt counselling sessions. If the Therapist addresses the issue directly the situation worsens. Ie: office reception not informing you that your client has arrived, silent treatment, workplace gossip, bullying.
Would highly recommend to not work as a Staff Clinician in the Saskatoon office.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Toxic environment!

Friendly Staff
Registered Practical Nurse (Former Employee) –  Guelph20 April 2017
Very friendly environment where staff support colleagues. Management and HR are very unorganized, shift swap and vacation time are difficult to receive, and units are constantly not staffed accordingly.

IC (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC12 January 2017
Highly demanding yet fullfilling job. Unfortunetly the work load does not coordinate with the salary. There is also not a lot of room to grow in the company even with a bachelors. Great coworkers

An organisation that makes a difference
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC24 February 2016
Homewood Health has gone over a number of changes in the last couple of years, and there has been growing pains with this. But I find that overall, your ideas are listened too and though things might not change as quickly as everyone likes, process are implemented off the back of employee feedback.

It's nice to work for an organisation that really does make a positive impact in people's lives and doesn't just make "things".
Pros
Ideas are encouraged
Cons
Communication is not always as clear as it could be

Everything about the company is terrible. Not recommended. Look elsewhere for employment

Excellent place to work
Psychiatrist (Current Employee) –  Guelph4 July 2015
The staff are incredibly dedicated and talented and they support and encourage each other. Lots of nursing and medical students which keeps things fresh. Extensive list of educational events and socials for staff, often fully catered. Outstanding location too with private walking trails, tennis courts, on site fitness facilities, coffee shop, library, chapel,etc. The food in the cafeteria is amazing too, not at all the usual hospital fare. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. I love it here.

PlanSmart Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC3 June 2015
It is a good stable company but does not focus on extra work and enhancing employee interaction. The management is unqualified and closed minded. Does not respect work/life balance. They do not appreciate new parents or take into consideration employees kids and the need for work-at-home ethic. Everything is about the numbers. I would not recommend working there
