Ex Employee (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 March 2017
Management and leadership is very politically professional. The more you work, the more responsibilities are imposed with not pay raise or recognition also some managers will take all the credit of your hard work. If they like you continue to stay on-board if not, you will be harassed till one resign. HR is only to help out the Managers. Policies are compromised for the higher ups.

Work load is tremendous and expectations with multitasking, attention to details from assistants is top priority. One can easily get stressed and burn out.
Pros
Good benefits but they don't match up to other companies out there
Cons
No time for lunch and time be wasted over unnecessary meetings and minute taking.

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 March 2017
Typically schedules are 12 hours, can get busy with little support depending on the unit you work for. Management is different in different departments and can be described by personal opinions on an individual basis. The workplace culture I worked for worked best in a teamwork type of fashion which help clients in an efficient manner. The more enjoyable part of the job include the colleagues you work with, all are very supportive. The hardest part of the job is workload.

Manager, Education Technology and Media Services (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 July 2016
However, the non-profit organization can not be motivated by revenue generated, unless is a business oriented. It is a great company to work for, but not with the current management style: work more hours with no extra pay - no work-home balance.
