Unprofessional leadership and favoritism
Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON13 September 2017
The job was enjoyable but management and agency operates unprofessionally. Micro aggressions and bullying happen to often at the management and senior management levels. Lots of favoritism results in highly unqualified individuals being placed in certain positions. Management is unqualified, making advancement difficult. Those that pursue higher learning or education often face discrimination and bullying from their less qualified managers. Overall, gained a lot of experience, but a very toxic work environment.
Pros
Experience
Cons
Toxic management

District Child Welfare Services Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON5 November 2014
I worked for this agency for a very long time. I loved the work I did. Serving the communities working with the children and families, and I had fantastic staff who gave their all.

I was shocked, saddened, hurt, blown away, that I was let go for no reason given after dedicating so many years of my career.

However, bygones be bygones...Life goes on....Dilico does fantastic work with the children and families. The dedication of the staff is amazing, and the joy of helping, teaching, mentoring, counselling, is something I will forever be greatfull for having the opportunity to do in my life.
I WILL find another job doing what I love to do.....
Pros
Fullfilling job
Cons
