      Decent Workplace, Uncertain Job Security

      Jun 7, 2021 - Senior Business Analyst in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      In my experience I had the opportunity to work with a great team which was supportive of each other. Projects were for the most part interesting and most people were friendly and helpful to work with. CEO and senior management were for the most part very open about organizational issues and budgetary constraints. COVID response was handled very well.

      Cons

      Throughout my employment term there were always talks of budget deficits and staff cuts. Multiple projects had been cut or stopped due to lack of budget and the COVID pandemic. Compensation/raises were frozen due to budgetary issues and internal promotion raises are capped. I believe this is a bad HR policy as inside hires with more experience are penalized for accepting more senior roles at a higher pay band.

      Not a great place to work

      May 1, 2021 - Registered Nurse 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I would say that about 40% of the nurses I worked with were very professional, knowledgeable, and skilled. They had an excellent work ethic, and and were great comrades.

      Cons

      There was very little flexibility with respect to changes to patient assignment, even when it was clear that meeting CNO standards would be difficult given assigned patient load. For the most part, the responsibility was put solely on the nurse with the saying, "just manage your time better." The nurse educator at the time was unapproachable, and would respond to questions with, "I'm surprised you don't know that...or you should know that." (It was clear, at times, when she would incorrectly explain policies and procedures that she, herself, was unsure of how to proceed.) Many individuals in management, but not all, favoured certain employees over others, and made their disdain for those they did not like visible through their actions and treatment of them. As in any organization, you will also find some nurses working there who are very unprofessional, unhelpful, and openly disrespectful to colleagues and/or patients.

      Pros

      TEAM WORK, POTENTIAL TO GROW

      Cons

      I feel this is a trick question. Each job comes with tough aspects that you learn to work through. My career is a journey, not a destination, I am learning a lot.

      Pros

      UHN has a great environment to work in. There is a deep concern for the employees and the well-being. In addition, it has a fantastic infrastructure so that the work is done in the best possible way.

      Cons

      Because of its magnitude, it is difficult to have contact with all areas of UHN and you are usually limited to your closest work environment.
