    huge downward spiral over past 6 years with more to come(:

    Case Manager (Former Employee)
    London, ON (Canada)

    ProsThanks to a great union we had good benefits which are slowly being eroded. I learned how to become a corporate minion. I learned in this organization people you should respect don't necessarily respect you, and may say and do two different things. (Just take a look at your Annual Review in your Personnel file..)
     I learned not to trust government. I learned the value of documentation (to cover my back) and that it's almost impossible to work for an employer which is not honest to it's employees. I learned how upset I become when I see my colleagues so stressed they get hives, shingles, elevated blood pressure, sleepless nights. One office even had co-workers physically fighting with each other because of the unreasonable workload and demands placed on them. If there's a new project or program, you pretty much have to figure it out yourself, sorry if you're working alone on late shift. I learned my top priorities are is my health and happiness. Getting sick and stressing out about work? Not worth it.

    ConsManagement should look at the faces, the body language of their staff to see how they feel about working in an oppressive environment. If you don't care, start caring or please leave. Is there no "care" in Health care?
    Management should take on the responsibility of advising clients of changes in service; don't leave it on the CM who will then just be vilified by client & family. How do you think this feels? Do you care?
    Enhance work-life balance: who wants to be told that now they have to work nights, weekends, especially in the last few years of their career or if they day care problems? Work together to figure out a way to cover these shifts, not just what works in London. Hello: smaller offices can be much more efficient.
    Consider the client and family when making service changes, not just what the current *Popular Project* is. Why is there a higher value placed on intensive service for a small group? Does this speak to equity and fairness?
    And last but not least, let's be realistic. Too much money is spent on manager salaries. There are way too many upper and middle managers, and many do not have the training or skill set to be affective. Promotion does not equal training.
    Take this recent example: a manager demanded her staff to come in to a certain office on a day of terrible weather instead of working out of an office closer to their home "just because." Staff in other offices were given this option which was more respectful and allowed for staff safety; did it really matter where staff worked that day?
    A well known understanding in the field of HR: people leave their managers, not their jobs. I did.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFlush and start over.
    Talk to clients. Talk to staff. Come up with a plan and adjust it over time.
    What is so complicated about that?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
