Nothing more rewarding than working with the youth
Residential Counsellor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 January 2016
The organization's structures, processes, culture and management lack morale. People thrive and grow in environments that are encouraging, positive and empowering. For employees to be successful and create better environments for themselves and for those around them, an organization needs to define what success looks like and invest in a strong, effective leadership with clear priorities and vision. This workplace is so dysfunctional, there is an abundance of tearing down employees, poor leadership, gossip, conniving politics and negativity. Management does not properly communicate its expectations for employees, often leaving them in the dark. There are imbalances in duties and responsibilities, policies are stifling and supervisors nitpick and micromanage. It's an unsupportive work environment with detrimental effects; leaving people feeling discouraged, undervalued, and depleted. Employees have come and gone, working their tails off, not being recognized or even compensated for their achievements.
