    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre full-time

    Pros

    Great facilities. Lots of great research and very practical projects. Compared to pure academic research, Sunnybrook encourages his staff to do research with a strong focus on knowledge translation and direct clinical applications. Being within the hospital site also helps having access to data, patient and clinician's expertise to accelerate the development of a variety of research projects.

    Cons

    Like any other large hospital institutions, there is a little too much bureaucracy involved with respect to having access to certain data or facilities, and certain technical resources can sometimes be hard to reach. Due to high securities, remote work can also be very difficult as access the Sunnybrook network requires a lot permissions.

    It really depends who your direct supervisor/boss is in regards to the job specifics. Takes a really long time to get to Sunnybrook by transit and by car.
