Fun work space
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON8 August 2018
There was always something new to learn and always new ways to come a problem that I learned from shadowing a couple of other workers. I found it to be good hard honest work that you could be satisfied with at the end of the day.

Worth the experience
Community Development Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON5 July 2018
Worked as community development assistant. The experience itself was amazing, really great if you want to get out of your comfort zone.

Staff need sensitivity training in learning how to deal with non-english speaking tenants.

Work life balance does not exist
Property Manager (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON2 February 2018
There is simply no work life balance and your constantly supposed to be "on-email" working re-actively. it's not healthy in my opinion. A company should allow their employees to re-charge their batteries at the end of a day and or on the weekend.
Pros
Always reactive
Cons
Extreme long hours

Very strong team oriented atmosphere
Project Manager, Project Implementation (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON22 August 2017
Very professional workplace.
I worked in the Project Implementation section which dealt with building maintenance. Prepared scopes of work, specification, drawings, RFP's, building condition assessment reports, monitoring contractors, engineers and architects. Included was monitoring of change orders and payments to contractors.

It was very rewarding work because we helped people who are at a stage in the life when they need a helping hand, thus providing them a safe home was paramount.
Pros
Safe and healthy atmosphere
Cons
Work load in Project implementation

Great as long as you're permanent
Housing Administrator (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON22 January 2017
Great place to work, however the Housing Administrator's have a tough position (helping and dealing with tenant problems). However, management and co-workers are there to help with problematic tenants.
As long as you are able to obtain a permanent position, this is a 5-star place to work. Would go back any day.
Pros
Great hours, co-workers, pay, etc...
Cons
Dealing with difficult clientel
