Business Analyst in Markham, ON
on 3 March 2021
A good work life balance and friendly environment.
There is a lot of potential however fairly slow paced organization. The communication protocol is very important between dept. Technology wise need some major upgrades. Salary wise the pay rates should be updated as per resource experience level. Co-workers within teams are generally very nice and collaborative however restrictive outside team.

Rigid management style based only on psychological lens.
Kinark has morphed over the years into a top down authoritarian model. The mental health stream is comprised of front line social workers and CYW's while clinical upper management are psychologists who decide on the evidence based programming that Kinark will offer with little thought to the need to look at children and families who need a different intervention in order to meet their needs. Clients are expected to be motivated to complete the intervention and when not able to do so, the worker is to blame or the client is seen as "not ready: to do the work. Be prepared for this. Young workers can get quick training.

Culture sucks
They need to fire the top management. They do not care about front-line workers. There is a lack of strategy in their processes. There is a lot of nepotism and unfair wage scales.

Loved supporting the kids
This is a great place to work and they do make positive differences in the lives of the children and their families. It is an honour to work there and support these clients. The treatment is evidence-based and built for success.

I left as soon as I could
Kinark was run like a business, not a social service agency committed to improving the lives of a vulnerable population. The interview process was sneaky. They show you a salary grid giving the impression you can move up, but really your locked in. I was hired as a crisis worker and was told after the interview I had to be available 24/7, no work/life balance. If you called in sick, a supervisor would aggressively question you upon returning.
