Awful Leadership
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB3 December 2017
Used to be about helping Winnipeg’s most in need, now about rebuilding the shattered career of the current corrupt Executive Director. Constant abuse and undermining of staff have turned a once rewarding and stable career choice into an extremely toxic and unpredictable work environment.
Pros
Liveable wage
Cons
Unpredictable and abusive

intriguing work environment associated with other social services within the community
Addictions Intake Service Worker (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB29 May 2017
I loved my job working for the Main Street Project for the last 3 years, my time working here has been extremely productive and educational. Working with approximately 90% of an aboriginal community and culture has been comforting and informative. Management tends to restructure often and has very little communication with their staff. I have found a lot of micromanaging within the organization and it has given most staff a bad taste of the kind of work we do as employees seeking more within the field. I have grown lots of relationships with staff and clientele and am very appreciative to have met these individuals throughout my time here.
Pros
meeting wonderful people both staff and clientele
Cons
Underestimating staffs work ethic, and reports.
