      Very Poor Work Life Balance

      Mar 3, 2021 - Coordinator, Emergency Management in Toronto, ON

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great for networking and gaining experience in emergency management. Helping people in need Great team environment

      Cons

      Underpaid for the extreme volume of work (regularly exceed 100hrs/week). Incompetent management and HR departments. Entire departments seem to shut down when just one person goes on leave. Field staff often left completely helpless. Organization is just another brand name and misses the mark on a lot of services that they say they offer.
