    Great people that believe in paediatric healthcare. Great culture, everyone is collaborative and willing to help anytime you need it. Some of the best and smartest people I've worked with in my professional career.

    Cons

    Compensation is not as competitive as it could be, however they are trying to change it and it depends where you are within the hospital/research institute. The pay can vary depending on your department. Benefits and mat leave aren't as competitive as it could be but standard for healthcare sector.
