      Limited opportunities for professional development and career advancement due to healthcare transformation and provincial hiring freeze. I wouldn't recommend to a friend due to current circumstances. However I am optimistic that things will improve.

      CCO best days behind them! now just a shell of its former self. Place regularly micro manages/monitor work of staff.

      Pros

      Work from home flexibility, tho there is little been little work in 2020 due to cov19 and system wide expenditure freeze from 2019 in screening programs/reprioritizing to cov19 testing with overall oncology screening rates have also reduced last 3 years!

      Cons

      Politics been more a regular focus since integrated system of Ontario health. A lot of expertise have left in 2019/2020 and have not been back filled due to Ontario government hiring freeze and reorganizations. Agency formerly was 1000+ staff but now barely over half that! Reduced central budget and hiring have been significantly reduced at CCO due to cov19 and accelerated Ontario health lean strategy. Organization now trying to find new identity through a leaner staff sizes, funding, and leveraged resources have caused many departments especially not related to healthcare/cov19 under re-evaluation. management has been monitoring and trying to uncover staff deficiencies as part of system drive to fill front line healthcare staff as opposed to back office staff. This includes recent management constantly micro-managing and questioning others work in preparation for reduced budget and repeated reorganization again. This is reoccurring politics.
