Culturally Sensitive and Inclusive Workplace

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
PQCHC works hard to provide a healthy work space for its employees. There are concerns that there is not a lot of space to move up, or advance further in your career here without bilingualism or a university degree (this is not always relevant to the job at hand, and they will pick someone who is bilingual over someone who is more qualified and better for the job IMO) which unfortunately is the same for many workplaces in Ottawa.

Fun workplace

Adequate management, however instructions given to complete tasks are often very unclear. Sometimes food is provided, but not always. Loved working here as I could actually see the positive effects that my work had on people's lives, especially for the children.

Pros

Free food

Cons

Unorganized management

Very poor managers with inability to review realistic programs and motivate employees

Very poor leadership. Management demonstrates favouritism, bias, and inability to realistically review and improve government funded programs. Management ignores or does not know how to give constructive feedback and incentives to employees. A pattern of dismissing new employees for arbitrary reasons is apparent. Management with employment programs is either is not provided with good direction or is misguided with ability to review leadership decisions. I would not recommend this employer.

Pros

Helping people find suitable employment opportunities and success in career development.

Cons

. misguided leadership with employment programs, poor workplace culture, biased and inadawuate employee reviews, inability to retain and develop employees.

Very nice place to work.

Excellent environment. I am a volunteer worker, but the staff is really interactive and helpful. The most important part of job is the exposure I have to all the details and information useful for newcomers to Canada.

Nice and friendly work environment

I enjoy the work environment. I like the friendliness of the staff. The staffs are cooperative and helpful. They are always ready to pave the way for work freedom. They care about workplace risk and safety issue. They train the staff on demand basis. They facilitate people interaction and networking. Multicultural environment with fair treatment to all. Wide range of services and huge scope to learn. I've learned Canadian workplace culture here. Honed my communication skill. Got a lot of nice friends. The challenges I faced so far is limited software support and space problem.

Pros

Freedom to work and supports to implement own ideas

Cons

Space is limited compared to range of services and staff
