What is the salary like at Thompson Community Services?

Pros

Amazing, hard working and dedicated staff Rewarding work with clients and building a relationship with them Great pay and benefits if you stick around long enough

Cons

Huge burnout and turnover, management so overworked that they neglect the staff and by extension the clients. There is no support at all and they hugely overwork staff and don't care about the quality of care.

Advice to Management

You have amazing and hard working staff who want the best for clients. They are trying so hard to do their best but are continuously overworked, underappreciated and subjected to abuse that should not be tolerated, let alone so widely accepted. Stand by your staff and do not throw them under the bus at every opportunity. The clients suffer when the staff are treated like garbage.

What are working conditions like at Thompson Community Services?

Pros

- Establishing relationships with clients - Paid courses

Cons

- They do not care if you become burned out - They have no resources for people experiencing burn out, and will not let you drop to part time status when you work full time - Severely understaffed - Everything is filed by paper, get with the times already - Most of the staff have no sense of team work and lateral violence is an accepted part of the work place

Advice to Management

You should really pick a better union that actually supports its employees needs. You should also be more empathetic towards your fellow health care team members, they are what makes the difference in your clients’ daily routines. You shouldn’t throw new staff into crazy households and expect them to thrive in a house full of bullies and then not have any supportive options for them. I quit due to burn out, under the advice of a bad doctor, and after getting the therapy I needed they wouldn’t take me back on as a casual (I missed my clients and some friends at work, so I wanted maybe a day per week there) because of my sick time they wouldn’t - even though that’s what the clients would want. Maybe if I was better supported, none of that would be an issue.
