Avis d'employé sur Croix Rouge Canadienne
Thought this would be a good place to work, never worked somewhere that had fellow employees throw people under the bus like here. They are doing it to try and advance and become an even lazier worker down the road. They also bad talk fellow or ex employees, maybe it makes them feel better? Not a good environment to be around if you ask me. Have fun at work not have to worry about every little thing you say and how it might bite you in the behind if someone hears it... No paid breaks, thought that was illegal. I know lunches are unpaid, but making people taking breaks without pay, that's just weird. No real advancement opportunities, the volunteers and casual workers have more say and get the easier or "cushy" jobs compared to the everyday worker. Be prepared to clean gross items, disgusting that people cant clean equipment that they borrowed for only a donation if they choose.

Red Cross was a great company to work for. They are a BIG company with a lot of policies and procedures, but its all for the health and safety of their employees. They pay was not great, but the job was very rewarding. Supervisors and management were fantastic.
The Red Cross operates according to rigid hierarchy. It's a very middle class culture & many employees aspire to higher positions in the organization so there's lots of competition. There is little to no transparency on the part of management. Nobody can speak honestly about internal problems. Donors must be protected at all costs from hearing about internal issues. The pay is ok, the work is meaningful but they really work their people too hard & provide little to no training.
You get to meet lots of wonderful volunteers.
Toxic internal culture. Old school patriarchal style management. No transparency.
To put it simply a lot of old ways and resistant to change. The philanthropy team is led by a bully with his flying monkeys. Leadership should consider diversity. Too many of the same faces. CRC needs to change drastically!
A lot of bullies. It might be time to revise your anti-bullying policy.
