    I worked at CAMH for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly work environment and bosses who care about the work they are doing.

    Cons

    Stigma of being a CAMH employee and hearing about how the news portrays CAMH and it's patients. As is the nature of casual employment, the work you have to do may dry up and your hours may be reduced greatly.

    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Above average wages. Up to 18% bonus in lieu of benefits and vacation pay for contract research staff. Strong pension program and option for benefits/vacation. Plenty of smart and capable research staff to support your growth. Great work/life balance if you set clear boundaries.

    Cons

    You will notice that, for a mental health hospital, nobody really cares about your mental health. Do not expect much from management or HR. Toxic work environment, power struggles and hierarchical bureaucratic behaviour, especially from managers and study principal investigators.
