Fun environment. Good entry level opportunity. No advancement.
Employment Specialist (Former Employee) –  London, ONSeptember 29, 2015
I had a lot of fun working for this organization, but after a few years when career goals start to take precedence, they become a very undesirable organization that does little to appreciate their employees. The trend seems consistent throughout, as everyone who has been there has thoroughly enjoyed being there, but with what seems to be an average 2-3 year retention rate, it's clear there's no reason to stay beyond the experience.

Compared to other organizations doing the same work, they pay quite poorly by a 10-15k per year difference.

If advancement opportunities arise, they do not look to hire from within. This is a great place to work for the opportunity you'd like to apply for, and nothing more. At the very least, you will enjoy your time there. It just won't be for long.
Pros
Fun staff; fun clientele; consistent hours; good work/life balance
Cons
Absolutely terrible pay when compared to the rest of the employment industry, A conscious desire to hire from without for advancement opportunities

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  London, ONAugust 2, 2012
Being a non profit organization and working with disadvantaged youth, I found this job to be an eye opener for me. Financially it was a hard place to work and therefore I chose to leave. I loved the atmosphere, the people, the values and all it stood for.
Pros
easy going atmosphere
Cons
low wages
