On the administration side, nothing ever changes. Work environment was generally positive and respectful, but dull to a degree that challenged me. Don't expect opportunities to advance.

Flexible, low stress, respectful
Cons
Relatively poor compensation, no advancement, dull.

The family centre has incredible workers, who go above and beyond for their clients and for their co-workers. Not only are you treated exceptionally well, but you are also equipped to go out and serve your community by giving the best service that you can give. Very rewarding. I am so proud to have worked there.
