Meaningful work, difficult work setting
Work was both challenging and rewarding as you could see the positive impact you were having on youth and their families.
What made the work most challenging was the unhealthy work environment (gossip, bullying, complaining) that was quite pervasive.
Pros
Meaningful work
Cons
Negative work environment

The William Hay Centre
Staff were great to work with. They made a stressful job enjoyable. Management was and continues to be terrible. Management makes changes without consulting front line staff or at least getting their opinions. Management is completely out of tune with what actually happens in the facility.
Pros
Good pay, good coworkers.
Cons
Poor, inexperienced management.
