stressful and fast-paced

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
generally a stressful position but pay is good. Expectations kept on adding (sometimes unreasonable considering the time we have). Job requires to be creative in problem solving skill. co-workers are amazing. management is not. Job is definitely secure but career advancement is a bit limited.

Pros

everyone is getting along. pays well

Cons

micromanaging and stressful

Thank you for your review. We’re sorry your experience at Strive isn’t more positive. We’re aware that the nature of the job can be “stressful and fast-paced” and we try to support our team members the best we can by offering flexibility, training, time off, and EAP. We encourage and welcome staff to reach out if additional support is needed.

Excessive Micromanagement

Meeting and supporting clients is both challenging and fulfilling work. However, the administration in AIL is very involved in all aspects of the decision making for your caseload. It becomes discouraged to report challenges as management creates more hurdles and stress in response. Simultaneously reducing your autonomy as a case manager, while not providing clear directions or support.

Pros

Supporting clients, managing mental health needs.

Cons

Micromanagement, lack of support, management style lacks praise.

Don't work here

Save yourselves the trouble and don't work here. Staff (especially in AIL) are not valued or appreciated. Managers will micro manage everything you do. Work is fast paced, managers place unrealistic deadlines and are unorganized.

Thank you for your review. We’re sorry your experience at Strive was not more positive. We try to support our team members the best we can. We will make sure to listen to your feedback and improve for our existing and new staff alike.

Great place to work

I've worked with Strive Living Society previously Howe Sound Rehab Services society for 6 years. During my time here, I had opportunity for advancement, increase in wage, educational opportunities ( I've been sent to a few weekend educational workshops) as well as I been able to be a part of building new programs. It's a large organization with many disciplines working together ie nurses, rec therapist, community support workers, residential workers, ect. If you prove yourself and are a hard worker you will have opportunity to advance. I'd recommend this agency.

Pros

opportunity, forward thinking, client centred, management

Cons

governed by government funding
