Very overloaded. Management doesn't care about employees' voices. They know all the issues but never fix them. They know the high turnover rate, but don't care. All they care about is the funding from the government, to build new places. Look very nice from the outside, but deep in is terrible. BE careful about the salary, it's getting lower each year because they know new immigrants will do it no matter what.
Senior management treats all the front-line staffs as her tools of achieving the commitment with the govt funding. The senior management offers no humanity towards colleagues. You could assume you work like a machine here, working hard without appreciation because the leader takes it for granted. If you are going to join the community service team, you would have overwhelmed work experience as bunch of workloads would just dump towards you without hesitation. A responsible leader should not have her head in the clouds, but it's common to meet one here. The high turnover rate speaks everything about the company.
What a shame that a human service organisation treat people and employer disrespectfully. For aggressive development, it scarified existing clients that getting subsidy from govt. Poor management from the head of home care service contribute the turning over rate.
Intensive case load, overwhelming environment to work in, management leaders lack structure, lacking direction and training. The culture is good, everybody is hard-working, typical of Asian company culture. Hope to have more team-building time. Lots of unhealthy communication and norms in the team. Management does not have the capacity to change the structure. Extremely high turnover rate. Team spirit is low
You will learn a lot as a new hire to the field. They train you well. Not too much room of growth if you want to go further. They take client care seriously.
