Management overhaul a MUST!!Although your coworkers are very supportive your management team is far from. They only care about themselves and not those on the bottom of the tottem poll. They pile on the work with little to no support. If you're not desperate for a job I would seek elsewhere.
Support Worker in Barrie, ON
Stressful, short staffed, lack of management What to say about a organization with so many problems? High staff turnover, lack of management/support, hiring inquisitors managers, use of outside agency staff who have little to no experience in the developmental field, not putting people supporters needs first, no work line balance, little to no ability to move up in the company unless you are friends with a higher up. CEO that cares more about her public appearance than her frontline workers and the people the agency supports.
Great Organization to Work ForThere are many long-term employees who have worked here for 10, 20 or 30 years, which speaks volumes about what a good organization this is to work for. This organization is focused on supporting vulnerable people the best they can, while compensating their employees competitively. Management is caring and compassionate people that always seek ways to support people and treat staff better, given the time and resources they have. I choose to work here because it's meaningful and stimulating, and the people I work with are kind and hard-working.
Housing Worker in Barrie, ON
Great supportive team and excellent compensation / work-life balanceWorking in the housing department has been a wonderful experience. The team and management are very supportive and collaborative and approachable.Compensation and benefits are very fair and lots of flexibility to help accommodate life and family events/emergencies. The policies and benefits help support and encourage time spent with family to reset/refresh. Management also have been quite supportive and fair towards the individuals being supported and is reflected in the feedback I receive from those I work with. Empathetic approach to supporting those in the program which results in people having an opportunity to live and growth/recover from their past. Best part of the job is seeing people succeed, grow and understanding how the program has greatly and positively impacted their lives.
