Overall great place to work
Program Assistant, Administration (Former Employee) –  Gravenhurst, ON8 February 2018
There are amazing co-workers to work with.
The hours are good and everyone is very supportive if you need help or clarification with anything.
Make sure you know the rules of the health unit (all the fine print) and make sure you follow it closely as not to get on the wrong side of management.
Can be fast and slow paced depending on the time of year but there is always work you can find to be done.
This is one of those jobs you get and want to hold onto as its a great one!
Pros
great group of people to work with, lots of independence, you learn a lot! The pay is great.
Cons
Management and other departments don't communicate well together, so you really have to be your own voice, make sure you are following your supervisors requests above others, mostly contract as opposed to permanent

Job Culture
A rewarding place of employment to educate the public.
Family Home Visitor (Current Employee) –  Gravenhurst, ON12 May 2016
An educational and inspirational workplace with new and exciting challenges. A place where one grows and develops individually by learning new information. Opportunities to share and learn from co-workers and become an asset to the team. Management is respectful of the needs of the employee and provides direction and leadership. The hardest part of the job is meeting all the needs of the client while the most enjoyable part of the job is feeling rewarded by helping direct and guide them to reach their own potential.
Pros
Learning the newest research on parenting.
Cons
Driving in challenging weather conditions.

Challenging and busy office. I enjoyed the fast pace
Data Management Assistant (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON23 April 2016
This sub office unfortunately closed. The office was a enjoyable place to work as the other co-workers were like family. I was able to apply administrative skills as well as assist with preparation of materials in the warehouse.

Great place to work. Little advancement
Research Analyst (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON29 May 2015
Great place to work. Great people. Little room for advancement. Depending on the department they prefer to hire external. A lot of red tape when trying to move forward with projects.
Encourage partnerships with community partners. Great learning experience when dealing with public and community agencies.
Although days seem busy and number of projects increases every year, the agency has a very slow pace due to revisions, micromanagement, and multiple approvals before implementing interventions.
Pros
Great benefits and work hours flexibility.
Cons
Many micromanagers.

Great team and friendly atmosphere
Program Assistant (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON19 February 2015
Typical day included, document preparation, minute taking, maintaining website for Healthy Schools and Healthy Communities programs.
The hardest part of the job was managing 3 programs at the same time.
Management support was not great, most support came from co-workers.
The most enjoyable part would definitely be the team of co-workers I worked directly with, very friendly and supportive.
Pros
Great pay and benefits, friendly co-workers
Cons
Poor management
