Not bad for non profit
Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB8 March 2017
Pros: Christian company that is openly evangelistic. Staff are caring and compassionate. Most if not all have a real heart and desire to serve the vulnerable and disadvantaged population. Many front line staff work extra for no benefit in order to serve the homeless

Cons: No focus or end goal by senior management. Very poor communication between management and front line staff. Management often makes knee jerk decisions that often result in negative outcomes for front line staff. Job security is based on favoritism and loyalty. One bad quarter of donations and jobs are eliminated. Unless you have a positive personal history with your supervisor or senior manager your job is always in jeopardy. Very political workplace. New employees should be careful about what they say and to whom.
Pros
flexible hours, above average benefits for full time people, good salary in the non profit space
Cons
high turnover and low morale, poor job culture, no job security

Christmas Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, Alberta20 February 2015
Greatest part of my day was working with the Volunteer Resources team as they shared their office with member of my team plus members of HR, facilities, finance and donor relations.

Cohesion, communication, joy, helping others

Hardest part of my job was being hired 1 month late which left no time for staff and myself to become acquainted, and then had to put out fires and quickly set up the biggest events for the year.
Pros
Team mates
Cons
Lack of time for proper preparation, company lacked preparation of contract staff arrival
