Good people - questionable culture

Good people. Culture is not very good at all. Not a lot of advancement or opportunity to grow. Management and staff feel siloed - not collaborative.

Excellent Finance Experience

Lots to learn, great budget and finance experience. Long periods of very slow paced work. Outdated programs used for many tasks. Culture was very friendly and welcoming. Hardest part of the job was finding things to do during slow periods.

Very enjoyable with great co-workers.

My experience at the York Region was very enjoyable. The people you get to work with are great and the wage you get paid is great. I would highly recommend working there.

Caution

The culture tolerates harassment and the leadership is aware of it. Confidentiality, integrity and respect are not leveraged as per the organization's values.

Management not held to standards

Payroll - salary and benefits are good Work/Life balance - can be quite good Culture - senior management try to promote a healthy work environment with room to grow Typical though (for this department) - Do not stay in one position for more than 2 years or you will be typecast in your role. Management does not encourage any type of career growth and external hires fill the majority of new hires. Any expressed dissatisfaction with the ability to take internal courses, take on additional responsibilities or new roles is not addressed in any meaningful way. There are too many management levels and not enough review of the "work" that management is doing. More areas should have 360 feedback reviews; senior management should act on those reviews and have strict and thorough follow up to ensure that real change occurs.

Pros

co-workers are good; pay and benefits are good

Cons

poor management

A typical day as a case worker

A typical day at work involved interview new clients everyday and following up with ongoing clients; working side by side with managers, supervisors and other co-workers to ensure the perfect outcome for the agency. Most enjoyable part of my job was when I helped people everyday and got positive feed backs from them.
