Horrible management
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON9 March 2019
Awful place to work. People advanced based on relationship with ED. The board is related to ED and upper management. Poor handling of funds and little money actually goes back to clients who needs it. Staff fired if speak out.
Cons
Lateral violence

Terrible management, didn't see any benefits to clients
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON7 March 2019
Terrible place to work. Management are not qualified, but instead chosen based on their relationship with the Executive Director.
Workplace culture best described as toxic. Lateral violence abundant. Employees (and ED) sent on elaborate trips (only one example is 2 weeks in Australia for 14 staff, to attend a two day conference) which runs counter to the spirit of helping marginalized Indigenous women and their families.

Hardest part of the job was being aware of the "creative" counting of clients and deliverables and having no resource to deal with it. Other difficult parts of the job were working with uneducated, inexperienced staff (some who are managers).

Only enjoyable elements of the job were the other organizations I got to work with and develop relationships with.
Pros
health benefits, a lot of travel
Cons
inexperienced management, lateral violence, misspending, nepotism
