    Pros

    This job is super easy. Just follow directions and rules. Have a good attitude and you will definitely excel at this career.

    Cons

    You have to work with people with disabilities, which is sometimes very challenging and frustrating. Also, some of the daily activities are boring. It is an all around easy job though.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for the management at SUCCESS Day Program. The people in charge do a very good job.

    I worked at SUCCESS full-time

    Pros

    The CEO is knowledge and proactive for the organization.
    The CFO for this organization is a Chartered Accountant.
    Everyone will put effort to communicate with each other.

    Cons

    Lots of OT, poorly managed finance department, underpaid finance team for the overwhelming workload.
    Do not recognize or award of your input, but will be penalize your work, result from poor training. (I start working live after 2 days of training from a co-worker who has been in SUCCESS for 2 months)
    If you do not complain, nothing will be done; however, even if you do say a word, you will be categorized as incompetent of your own duties. (Weak on HR, since the only person in HR left the organization as well)
    2 finance meetings every week; each one at least 1 hour.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone do a little bit of everything do save the cost of wages and salaries on a financial perspective. Please keep in mind that, the quality of work that the company is asking for, compare to the pay rate and workload, is lopsided. Well trained staff is the key, but encouragement on performance is needed. More communication from top to bottom is needed, but not vice versa.

    Pros

    It's a good working environment at SUCCESS because everyone wanted to help people.
    Lots of room to learn, to grow, to meet new young people, values team work.

    Cons

    everything is based on funding, so no funding, no work. Everyone is on contract, so there are no permanent positions.
    Pay is lower than other non-profit organization although the company already did a match.

    Too many department overlaps with each other, internal competition for income to maintain operation and job security for workers.

    many job positions are part time, not full time

    Advice to Management

    empower staff more with subsiding continue studying.
