Communications Operator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 January 2018
A great place to work with very supportive co-workers. Everyone wants to see you succeed and is very positive. You are working in a group setting and teamwork is a big part of the job. The benefits were great, the atmosphere was great, the work load was manageable. My direct supervisor was wonderful.
Bad Morale. No room to advance. Badmouthing. No Credit For Work
Systems Development (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 June 2017
There are many internal problems right now with the management which is tribal and toxic. There is no room to move up. The pay is not done properly resulting in the employees being cheated on the payroll. The management is very closed and will not allow for anything other than what they can deal with which is not much because most of them were handed their jobs. The environment in Systems Development Information Services branch is very bad and has a bullying manager who is abusive towards staff. He comes across as very nice but behind people's back there is a lot of discrediting for the work that is done and a lot of blaming and shaming. People don't get the credit for work done because the management steals the credit for it. As a result, a lot of people are forced to quit, get fired or are forced to retire early.
This is the worst place to work. Closed minded. Toxic.
nice building located downtown
Toxic workplace with bullying management and reputation tarnishing
Extremely dysfunctional and poorly managed department

I am a peoples person. I have worked in a community office from the last eight years.
In my role as an Executive Assistant with the Member of Provincial Parliament, I have developed the following skills.
I have developed my strong administrative skills in my role by managing the day-to-day executive and administrative operations. This includes ensuring that the operational and administrative policies, procedures and standards are consistently applied to support the achievement of the M.P.P's objectives.
I have further developed strong organizational skills as well as learned how to prioritize workflow when faced with various conflicting priorities. In situations where there are conflicting priorities, I will take a proactive approach to solving the problem, by drawing on my knowledge of the Ministry’s priorities, goals and key initiatives. I am able to quickly identify the priorities appropriately and action them accordingly.
I have organized and maintained confidential personnel files. This also included the safekeeping and archiving of the files based on the M.P.P’s retention schedule. When confidential files needed to be transferred for off-site storage, I consulted with the Ministry Freedom of Information and Privacy Act coordinator to ensure that the necessary protocols were followed to ensure the proper recording, handling and transfer of confidential documents.
I support the communication and distribution of new corporate initiatives. As the main point of contact for new initiatives, I respond to queries from Ministry staff (including Regional Directors and frontmore... line Managers) promptly and courteously.less
