Very Poor Management
Program Facilitator (Former Employee) –  GTA, ON27 March 2019
Poor management. Managers are lacking the competency to support and motivate the team. An unhealthy working environment. No job satisfaction at all. Turnover rate is extremely high. Anything happen, they blame the staffs first. Horrible working environment

Heavy workload. Low salary. Poor management
Client Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON22 March 2019
Very poor management, managers are lacking the competency to support the team. Be prepare to do your job without proper training and support, very unorganized. Youre on your own to figure out how to do your job. Heavy workload, be prepared to do a job of multiple people everyday or even more if someone on your team quits, the work will be dumped onto you, dont be surprised. The salary doesnt reflect on the heavy workload. Its just slightly higher than minimum pay. If youre looking for a job with decent pay, exit this posting window already. They dont see employees as ammunition for better profit, employees are just tools to get money. No job satisfaction, no recognition, no work-life balance, staffs are not treated right. Lots of gossips, not a healthy working environment. Resulted in very high staff turnover rate, low staff retention.

If youre a fresh grad and just looking for experience, its a good start and new learning experience. Its not recommended if youre looking for a decent job. Not worth the headache.
Pros
Pretty building
Cons
Heavy workload. Low salary. Poor management. Lack of support and recognition.

Overworked, underpaid. Managed by unqualified people!
Client Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON4 February 2019
Worked there as a Client Service Coordinator. Was told openly during a team meeting that CEO/management's motto is "Fire fast, Hire slow". Be very careful of people backstabbing you and management claiming credit for work that you had done. Low morale, high turnover rate. Good to use as a stepping stone to gain more experience, a temp job while you find something more stable. Be prepared to do the job of 4 people while getting the salary for one person.
Pros
Nice building
Cons
High turnover, don't invest in staff education, heavy workload, no work-life balance

Private run company means Money Rules overal
Healthcare staff (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON18 November 2018
Staff backstab and management takes in gossip. Clients pay alot of money per day for care but if their expectations are not met, they complain and management Fires the staff person. All it takes is a complaint from a client who refuses to believe the nurses reasons for safety is in the best interest of their family member. Msnager backs the nurse. Client then complains more and gets her way and staff member gets fired.
PSWs are over worked and unappreciated.
English speaking nurses are mistreated and the first to go when "trouble" comes from management.
High turnover of staff.
Your license and knowledge/skills has no power against the almighty doller.
Manager has MBA and nursing degree but her MBA is what she uses only. Ndegree is just a degree. She has never used and the proof is in her actions or lack of. She doesnt know what to do in an emerg moment but when it comes to financial emerg she is fast and eager to solve.
Run Away and never apply. Your license is at huge risk in this place and under this management.
Pros
Building is beautiful and Clients are lovely
Cons
Managment and their focus

Horrible Management and No Job Security
Registered Social Worker- Transitional Care Centre (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 September 2018
Extremely high turn over due to no flexibility and no support or understanding from management. You are expected to do far and beyond your job scope, and asked to do other people's jobs when they quit. It takes them months to hire new people.
Cons
No support

Would not recommend
Community Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON24 September 2016
Had to work overtime with no pay. The Program Director I worked under can't lead and make up her mind. Lots of back-stabbing, politics and micro-managing. Turn over rate is very high. The worse place to work for.
