    I worked at University Health Network full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great working environment.
    Good people to work with.
    Rewarding tasks, at least for me.

    Cons

    Not enough money for capital equipment replacements.
    Sometimes upper management doesn't always value the expertise that technical staff have to offer, and what they do in the background to keep everything running.

    Advice to Management

    Must allow for a plan to replace ALL equipment and stick to the schedule. Otherwise, failures increase, causing health care to suffer. Staff and patients become frustrated at the delays, due to failures.
