    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at CAMH full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay is higher than other health science institutions Management is sensitive to mental health concerns and related needs of employees Vacation and time off is very common and easy to navigate Growth is encouraged and expected

    Cons

    Many departments are busy so turnaround on documents is slow. This sense of unurgency is felt CAMH-wide, although not reflective of everyone, but tends to demotivate staff from having to meet deadlines since it is often excused.
