Excellent coworkers; terrible management
Development Communications and Fundraising (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC27 April 2017
The work that Atira does in the DTES and the Lower Mainland is incredible. The low-barrier approach and the fact that they house some of the hardest to house women in the Lower Mainland is amazing. The fact that they took over buildings that had some of the most violent things ongoing in there and transformed them to house women who experienced or are experiencing violence, making them a home, is awesome.
However, there's some management rhetoric and ongoings that I don't believe center the women at the work being done. I think that Atira is a terrible employer in terms of supporting the growth and well-being of its employees, and management is awful at taking feedback given by its employees that speak up to some of the unfair and unjust practices. I think that management operates in a gaslighty and fear mongering way towards its employees while touring feminist and anti-oppressive values.
In short, love the work that Atira does in the community, but would never encourage anyone to work there.
Pros
Excellent coworkers, super supportive
Cons
Terrible management, no boundaries, no managerial skills

Once established in the environment, it can give you the experience you need to work in a very diversified setting.

SENIOR BUILDING SUPPORT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC22 April 2019
When you love what you do, it does not seem like work.
The hardest part of the job is to not take your work home with you.
Loved supporting and being a voice for the Women and children, and to walk beside them through their life choices.
