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

    Pros

    It's a great feeling to contribute to one if the world's best pediatric hospitals.

    Cons

    Government budget cuts have made it nearly impossible to do a job properly on the corporate side. Salaries are not keeping up with I dusty, and govt's 1% cap for next year will only make this worse.

    Advice to Management

    Get out there and shame the govt into properly funding hospitals.
