    OK work, hard to get things done quickly

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsInteresting work, good work culture. People really believe in the work that they do here and you can see the difference you make. Extremely flexible with scheduling, but this depends on the department.

    ConsHuge bureaucracy; can be hard to get things done in a reasonable time frame. Not a lot of room for advancement, few opportunities to go contract- permanent. Don't offer vacation and benefits to contract employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great organization!

    Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsGreat organization to work for. The management is great, staff are excellent. Some flexibility in terms of hours and good pay.

    ConsHard to get full-time status. Contract positions are abundant. Internal opportunities don't come up too often (and sometimes they already have someone in mind)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good people positive work environment

    Information Specialist (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsI like working here because the people that work here generally want to work here and enjoy working here. There is an honest effort to do your best work just for the sake of doing your best work. There seems to be a much lower level of corporate culture (though there is some). Pay seems to be at or above average and merit is quickly recognized and rewarded. There are some limitations on how quickly you can change positions, but this is mainly to make sure you are not constantly being trained for a new post. It is a large enough facility that you can move to other departments if something is not working. Managerial leadership seems to be some of the best I have experienced. As I said before the staff here want to do good work so managers just let staff do what they are good at.

    ConsSome people would say there is a stigma attached to working at a mental health centre, but personally I feel like it is a point of pride.... There is really very little not to like in my experience... if you can get a job here take the job. I have had more vacation days else where, but theirs are pretty standard amounts. I only mention them because they are average at a place where nothing else is. They are a bit picky about sick days too.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't change course. steady as she goes.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
