Toxic work environment, constant lay-offs, unfair bilingual practices.
While I loved the job that I was hired to,do,and the programme I was hired to work for, my job changed 7 times in my last year. I went from supporting one Clinical Manager across three sites to supporting four Clinical Managers across all sites, which was impossible. It was cut back to three Clinical Managers across all sites. I was supported by my original Clinical Manager to try to make it work. Ultimately, we were both laid off.
It was a very politically charged environment. I would not recommend it to anyone.
In addition to the above problems, the Director was very uncooperative accommodating my physical disability and the process took over six months. Had I not been laid off, I would have pursued legal action, but was forced to sign a nondisclosure document as well as being forced not to pursue the issue with the Human Rights tribunal.
Healthcare is a very toxic environment to be in these days. I have worked in the industry for 35 years and have endured two layoffs due to budget cuts. I’m still looking for full-time work.
Dedication,, hard-work and loyalty are not rewarded.
