Terrible management, didn't see any benefits to clients
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 7 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.
health benefits, a lot of travel
inexperienced management, lateral violence, misspending, nepotism
