Overall Good Place to Work but can improve!
Manager (Ancien employé) – Toronto, ON – 23 août 2018
Great organization overall with an opportunity to really make a positive difference in the community. Almost everyone, including Senior Management is friendly and open to new ideas and ways of thinking. Excellent Brand.
The org. Is extremely fast paced b/c management doesn't say no to anything and there are simply to many disjointed initiatives happening across the organization with out the proper resource(s) to support those initiatives adequately.
IT is a bit toxic due to one particular massive ego trying to micro manage everyone and every project within the organization. Underlying systems and data within it is a mess which makes doing anything with data a real challenge.
Overall the org. is trying to do the right things, but they are way behind the for profit world when it comes to technology, process and innovation.
Advice to CEO - listen to your Senior Team. Less can be more. Focus on doing 2-3 big organizational initiatives instead of doing many smaller things. Spend more on resources in the right areas. Focus on optimizing marketing spend, instead of spraying and praying. Get rid of people unwilling to change and those who have big Egos.
Friendly staff, Good SLT, Heart in the right place
Fast Paced, Not Strategic, Big Ego's in IT
