Vecova is a wonderful place to work, if you truly love people.
Community resource practitioner (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 November 2018
Vecova is one of the best agencies in Calgary, and a leader in the disability services field. They offer relevant training/learning opportunities at no cost to employees. Vecova is constantly evolving and improving with help (maybe too much) from their research and development teams. These are the only reasons I rank Vecova so highly. Once you get past the bells and whistles, Vecova is like any other agency. There are staff shortages, overdue vacant positions, office politics and drama. Bullying and rank pulling. Constant increases in workload. Constant delegation of administrative tasks that leaves stress and pressure on staff. The coverage team desperately lacks accountability efficiency and structure. They fail staff, and most unfortunately our clients, on a daily basis. I truly believe Vecova is more concerned with funding, than enriching the lives of the clients they support. The word Vecova means Ve-moving Co-together Va-forward. I believe the name that would better reflect the objectives and intent of my employer would be, Veva. I believe highest quality of living is NOT a privilege Vecova extends, but an EXPECTATION Vecova should be held to, and an OBLIGATION to the clients they support. Aside from the management and coverage team deficiencies, Vecova is still a wonderful place to work. The staff is diverse and vibrant, the moral is generally high, and there are so many wonderful precious and unique individuals we support.
All the wonderful people we support.
Zero accountability from management, excuses replacing solutions.
