The IT Team Life is Amazing

I really enjoy my job at the Manitoba Metis Federation. The work/life balance is amazing and the management understands the stresses of working in the IT field. I strongly recommend working for the MMF in their IT department

Please Stay Away

This is the worst place I have ever worked at. The culture is toxic, people within and outside departments lie and hide things from one another. "Family" is hired and paid to do nothing besides sit around. Nothing was communicated clearly during covid, not positive cases not even a single policy... You are not given the tools to do your job at all, most are set up to fail. The way finances are handled is "shady" to say the least. Avoid at all costs...

Pros

free food

Cons

culture, lack of support, stress

Mostly Good people

Mostlu good people at mmf. Lots of benefits of working there. Sense of pride and community. Pay was bare minimum though. Good opportunities but hard to get in.

Pros

Day hours.

Cons

Salary

Easy-going/relaxed office but there are major problems with management in addressing employee needs

There is very little structure on a typical day and staff usually gets freedom in tackling tasks as they see fit. They are very lenient with break times and time-off requests I learned about processing payroll, doing reconciliations, completing year-end audit processes, and calculating multi-million dollar claims Management was very distant and hardly ever kept staff informed of deadlines and expectations. Dealing with them was definitely the hardest part of the job. We were often left to solve problems with inadequate training and minimal support. I did learn a lot there and for that, the experience was worthwhile and can be carried forward into bigger and better things.

Pros

Opportunities to learn, relaxed environment

Cons

No guidance by management and unclear expectations/deadlines. Insufficient training offered.

I Enjoy cleaning, making the place look nice

I started at a young age so it taught me how to clean properly, such as dusting, and vacuuming on a daily basis, as well as changing garbage's and keeping the public washrooms clean for the public. It also taught me to be precise and respect others belongings.

Pros

Close to home

Cons

Not enough hours

Provided training

I provided training as well as computer and software upgrades. I was also responsible for upgrading the network and improving VPN security. I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and felt very appreciated for the assistance I provided.

If only the President knew how this place was running...

Wonderful experience. Lack of Training. Shady environment. Lack of resources. Lack of tools to get jobs done. Lack of efficiency. Very dirty bathroom floors. Very high potential for the company, if only they would give their skilled employees the tools to succeed. It cannot be assumed that because the skills are there they can find their own way. Set up for failure.

Pros

Awesome Restaurant. Fantastic Security.

Cons

Lack of training, efficiency and tools to succeed.

Unclear goals, nice work environment

The environment was very positive, i.e. the people that worked there were very nice to work with and were supportive. On the other hand, there were difficulties trying to gather requirements. At the end, the product was built, but the requirements phase went on too long because of this.

Worst place of employment

Poor wages, underqualified management and no room for advancement. Staff didn't receive an increase in wage after being there for many years but always promised one. Management yells and belittles you.

Summer employment

It was a good place to work for the summer. There is also lots of other ways they can help you out. It was only for a summer position and didn't get to know a lot of people but everyone seemed friendly.
