Ok
Ok, it is a residential treatment center with a fast pace environment. It can offer lots of personal satisfaction and I recommend it for people interested in working in addiction.

Great potential hindered by poor management
I am impressed with the articulate and accurate reviews about this toxic environment. I can see the truth in some of the positive ones. Both are an accurate description of much of my experience. If you like the work this is a fun place to work because Edgewood hires great staff, but go in prepared to be mismanaged and disrespected. I concur with the remarks made about blatant discrimination, nepotism, and the description of a tight group.

Do as I say, not as I do
Great patient care, lousy staff care. Micro managed, don't dare have an independent thought or offer a different way of looking at things. Unrealistic expectations for work load. High staff turnover.
"Feedback" process used for humiliation. The long term staff is a tight closed group that look down on the new ones.
Pros
Free lunch once/wk at mandatory staff meeting
Cons
Work load, stress, burnout, very little training/support.

Wonderful people, amazing learning, great connections!!
Edgewood has been my place of employment for a considerable length of time. I have seen many changes, positive and negative, and have also seen many employees come and go.

The recent changes to the staffing, clinical program, staff morale boosters, and overall family feel have let me recommit myself to this place of employment even more!


Edgewood has become a place of open communication, honesty, fun, collaboration, teamwork, and generally a happy place to be. This is new and is something I'm really thankful for.

Of course, like every workplace there are politics, challenges and tough days; those are normal.


I love how they are promoting from within and making people feel they are valued. Great changes, in-spite of past challenges.
Pros
Free lunches, open door policy with management
Cons
Stressful and fast paced at times

Nepotism, judgmental,discriminatory & inflexible
There was visible discrimination, nepotism, and unfair treatment of employees. Lateral violence was evident after just one day of orientation on a walk through between. Seemed a bit toxic and evidence of a heirarchy/politics/lack of respect when there should be a feeling of Community and fair treatment. You get a feeling of favourtism if you don't know anyone who works there, so Nepotism is also present. For a healing centre the management staff seem to be judgemtental and discriminatory towards their clients and people who struggle with addictions and mental illness. I.e. giving unsolicited advice-while my back was turned to a fellow prospective coworker (who I didn't know I was competing for a job with until after the fact) just because of her age, that she should be careful not to start a relationship with any of the male clients and that they were quote "sick,otherwise they won't be here"(disease mentality). Assuming that she would be vulnerable and portraying ageism behaviour and labelling. The hiring process needs to be shortened as well, discrepancies with the online job description as well needs to be cleared up and more concise about their expectations for the job and especially their inflexibility with time during training/orientation towards new support worker employees. Because they do make it seem like their flexible with their casuals but they're certainly not , they will hold it against you and choose employees who don't have other responsibilities other than just their jobs over qualified/experienced/educated workers. For example: doctors appointments and - more...
Pros
Food and wonderful clients
Cons
Nepotism, politics, lack of communication, favourtism

Job Culture
Too many politics!!
As a previous employee I found some of my coworkers were amazing to work with, the patients were great, and I learned a lot. The politics though were just too much to handle. There is favouritism galore (if you aren't an alumni prepare to never advance). There is a feeling of a clique where if you aren't a higher up you're not as valued.

I learned better interpersonal communication skills and to watch my own back and not trust anybody. The hardest part of the job was putting in a ton of effort and getting stabbed in the back.


Was told by many senior employees that Edgewood used to feel like family but now it doesn't, which is sad.


I absolutely loved my job and felt like I was making great progress, so to have everything ripped away for no valid reason was quite heart breaking, and no higher ups ever asked me how I was doing for the last two months until I left, not even a "hello".


It is a great place to gain some experience for your next job and some of the coworkers are amazing people to work with, just be careful.
Pros
Free lunches if there is leftovers
Cons
Favouritism, politics
