Great place to work, stepping stone in your career
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  80 sheppard ave.18 August 2016
NYSC is an amazing and very rewarding place to work. The management is very understanding and cooperative. However sometimes they do have a closed door policy and hierarchies are very evident within the organization. Great co-workers and overall goal.

Salary is low, as it is a non-profit organization, but benefits are great.

Requires more flexibility in allowing workers to change rules, thinking outside of the box and being more involved in decision making for the organization.

Would definitely recommend applying.

I feel The work I do every day makes a difference to the people in our community
Client Services Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 April 2016
I love working with people. In my past and present employment I worked with/for people of many cultures. Working with clients everyday makes my working day so unpredictable. Often I have to find solutions within the regulations of non profit organizations and it makes the day very challenging and interesting. I thrive on challenges and finding a solution for the challenges while maintaining a high level of competence is what I enjoy the most.

The hardest part of my job is that non-profit organizations have strong regulations so I don't have the freedom to create or the freedom to think outside the box. Although this was once an interesting and fun aspect of my job, it has begun to take a toll on my overall morale. I feel that there are many more career opportunities to explore where I can thrive just as successfully - if not better.
