it's all about who you know
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 September 2019
This workplace can be good short-term. But long-term prospects are limited unless you are part of the clique.
Salaries at Independent schools are notoriously low, this one is no exception.

Working at Branksome Hall has been an amazing experience, meeting different students from around the world and calling one place home with them has been very special, it is an inspiring and wonderful place to work, meet people and grow both as an individual and as a professional.

Work for Social Cause
Liaison (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 January 2019
The organization is run under the leadership of great founders and managers.
100 % of donations are used to educate less privileged kids who are extremely smart but need the extra support to excel at school .

Not a great work environment for women
teacher (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 May 2017
It is an organization which overworks people and promotes less qualified men over women.

The hours are too long and the administration are not always supportive. There is a culture of fear operating that is regrettable. It prevents people from doing their best work.

The faculty and students, however, are top notch. This is with the notable exception of The English Department, where they bully others.

Great infrastructural supports, IT, PD
Assistant: Student Services & IB Program (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 April 2013
The pace is hectic and demand is high due to the echelon of clientele. Pay is sub-standard considering the demanding portfolio of responsibilities when compared to similar institutions. Poor support for work-life balance. Poorly planned strategic re: employees, roles, divisions of labour.
Pros
great it support, lots of pd, very current with trends, mix of ages for staff
Cons
demanding portfolios that do not adequately compensate for level of performance
