Garbage place, full of fake people and poor management
Junior Accountant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 July 2017
Turnover is really high, only promote employees that suck up, very poor management, Crazy high volume with OT every single day, no work life balance. No training, yet there is full accountability from day one. They say that they support CPAs, but there is no time to study to become one. Management forces a culture of fear on employees.Stay away from this company. It is poison dipped in honey.

I learned that Corporate office does not care about the reality of the industry only the numbers.
Corporate Management are cutthroat

Rpn (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 August 2012
Typical day would be medication administration, simple wound care, managing two buildings both with some depend and independent residents along with supervising psw that are working along side the nurse on duty. what have i learned how to multitask, most of the co-workers are enjoyable to work with and the hardest part of the job is not having enough time to get a break. Most enjoyable part about this job is working with the residents.
Pros
working with residents
Cons
no breaks
