    I worked at Covenant Health Canada part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good flexible hours, excellent benefits, friendly staff within all departments

    Cons

    Certain department managers sometimes being verbally abusive to staff. Also bullying tactics by former HR (who no longer works there) by forcing staff to resign or quit just to save money within Covenant Health. Certain departments belittling staff. Too much politics.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bullying your staff and forcing some to resign. Listen to your staff. No need to bully to get your way. People have feelings. Need to reduce wastage as in drug wastage, IV bags and other medical supplies. It's ridiculous how much is thrown out- some can be easily donated to post secondary schools for training purposes.

    Compassionate staff, volunteers and physicians to quality care. Living the organization's values: Serving with compassion; Upholding the sanctity of life at all stages; Serving the whole person, mind, body and spirit.

    Some aging infrastructure due resourcing within healthcare system versus the organization itself.

    Pros

    The benefits covered everything and healthcare spending account was great.

    Cons

    The general mentality is not one of growing employees, it is one of stay in your place and be happy with what we give you. They consistently underpay for the industry (administration level). They have no appreciation for employees, inappropriate behaviour happens regularly, and they carry on about "Catholic Values" that are rarely exhibited by anyone except for frontline staff.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate committed employees and don't bully people.

    Pros

    Company creates an environment that feels caring. Compensation and benefits are extremely good.

    Cons

    Catholic values are constantly being discussed. Organization represents itself in a way that suggests that all employees are in agreement and there is little opportunity to oppose these Catholic values.Hardware is often outdated.
