Disappointing corporate culture
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON10 May 2017
Although the MHCC spends a lot of time talking about mental health in the workplace, the number of staff who took stress leave during my time there was shocking. From inefficiency of managers to disengaged, jet-setting executives, the MHCC is in dire need of a complete overhaul.
Pros
Location is convenient. Interesting field of work.
Cons
Stressful environment.

Needs better leadership
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ottawa27 August 2015
I was laid off along with many others for "budgetary" reasons. There are serious issues with high management and leadership turnover. Never a good sign, especially in non-profit sector.
Pros
Pays well
Cons
Leadership deficit

Data Integrity Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON16 May 2014
Great employee benefits and professional development. Staff are very supportive of each other. Although the different programs work very independently of each other, they often cross paths and contribute information for the larger cause of Mental Health.
Pros
Have a lot of trust to work independently and develop new procedures
Cons
Little direction and formal training
