Not clear for the direction from leadership and poor benefit
Poor benefit and management. Staff are friendly but leadership is poor. Not clear for the directions and things changed without notification. Benefit is poor.

A great environment of staffs who are all very understanding, supportive and respectful of each other.
A great environment of staff who are all very understanding, supportive and respectful of each other. Everyone has great teamwork during work, but everyone also bonds through casual events. But, as this role focuses on staff to give hands-on person-centered care to our clients, it can cause burn-out at times.

No hours for psws.
This company does not give hour for psw. They will pay for part of your school but hire too many psw. Only get hours on weekend or holiday. And not good pay.
Pros
None

No Benefits, No Raises for PSWs, Unfair Treatment by Management, Racism
I worked here for 5 years as a PSW. The reason I left was because Acclaim froze PSW wages for the past 2 years. We were not even given the cost of living increase because management said it was not in the budget. But if you look at the sunshine list- upper management and the CEO got yearly raises of 4%. Also there are no benefits package available to PSWs, meaning if you need to go see the dentist or get eye glasses you have to pay for it all out of pocket.

Inconsistent Hours: When they hire you they will promise to give you regular hours, one week you will have 30 hours, but the next week only 12. It is very hard to pay your bills with this company because the hours fluctuate so much. But they require you to be available to work for a good chunk of the day so this prevents you from seeking out another job. Sometimes they will add or take away clients to your schedule at the last minute which creates chaos.


I think the worst part about working for this company was the bad morale. You can start off being a positive person, but over time this company will break you. The morale is so poor here, most people hate their jobs, management won't even say hello to you if you are a psw because you are considered beneath them. There is also a lot of racism, bullying and harassment present in this company.


Working with the clients was nice, they really appreciated the job we did. I miss the clients I would see each day. But for me the poor morale and unfair treatment by management was why I left.
Pros
Clients really appreciated the work we did for them.
Cons
No raises, no benefits, unfair treatment by management, bullying, harassment and racism

Supportive team

unappreciated and understaffed
if you want to work somewhere where there is no time to acknowledge your hard work but will make time to point out the smallest mistakes you make so that management can cover themselves. Supervisors don't know much about anything and aren't helpful at all. Be ready to drive all over the place. There are some good managers but they cant make up for the rude, insincere staff. Not a bad place to work if you're desperate but try to look for something else after.

Amazing company to work for
Acclaim health is a great company! They really invest in their employees. There is a great sense of community here with incredible diversity. The management is very supportive and allows you to have a great work life balance. They are always available when needed. They always include front line staff in decision making. This company is like family. It is small but mighty!!!
Pros

Cons
Dealing with government funding

Non supportive, very racist not a multicultural environment. Managers fire who they want without an explanation. Acclaim Health does not uphold there policies, they uphold there own personal agendas.

Do not work here!
Lots of racism and bullying happening here. The turnover rate for nurses is so high. Many just up and leave when the BS gets too much. This is one place to go if you are looking to lose your licence or if you need some stress in your life.

Management spends all the money on themselves and give themselves raises frequently.
Pros
None
Cons
Lots and lots

Stay away!!!!
CONS
*management is not to be trusted -- they look out for themselves

*lots of double standards among staff (if you need something, make sure you are the right race otherwise don't waste your time)

*managers do not know what they area doing -- there are too many of them sitting in offices pushing papers around, acting important

*no support when you are overwhelmed on your desk even when others are socializing (including the supervisor)

*they are ALWAYS short staffed, requiring you to cover more than one desk (managers will not cover a desk -- they are too high and mighty to do such a thing -- plus they are not trained

*no breaks --unless you smoke, or need to pray then take as many as you want

*no raises -- except for top management who are on the Sunshine List EVERY year

*management giving more responsibilities to full-timers who are already overloaded because "there is no room in the budget" to have more staff come in

*no room for growth

*no incentives

*many full timers end up going on stress leave (most will end up crying at their desk or in the bathroom many times before the final breaking point) -- again lack of support from management who don't know what they are doing



This is a DIFFICULT job that will crush your spirit. You need a hard exterior, be able to multi-task, be able to handle difficult patients, difficult staff, have an endless supply of patience for the idiocy and hypocrisy amongst managers who do nothing but enjoy exerting their power over their minions.
Pros
close the highway
Cons
lots!
