Overall Good

Overall good, the work is rewarding and the clients make it all worth it. Most of the staff were great to work alongside and very supportive team overall. The pay is terrible, pays less than any other social service organization out there that does the exact same type of work, benefits are not great and union dues are high, even though the union does very little for us. There is little room for growth within the organization and internal promotions are often political. In the branch I used to work in- correctional and justice services the director Art and most of the managers under him were not great, and not in-tune with what their front-line workers are dealing with at all, have been in their positions for too long, most are clearly burnt out and seem to want to avoid dealing with issues that staff point out. They "work from home" often and definitely do not put in a full 40 hours of work most weeks.. Its hard for staff morale to be high when this is the example management sets.

Do not recommend

Did this job for 2 years until I burnt out. High staff turn over. VERY Poor management. No benefits for part time or casual workers. Pay is terrible. Also not a safe environment for guests or staff (high rate of incidence).

Pros

There were some cool staff but have all quit now

Cons

Everything
