    Pros

    There is plenty of opportunity to work in various departments.

    Healthcare is slow on the technological uptake so working with antiquated systems can be the norm.

    Pros

    stable, good benefits/ pension package, opportunity for growth, rewarding work

    Cons

    very basic offices, no employee culture (depends on your lab/ team) and limited interaction with other staff outside of your department.

    Advice to Management

    would be beneficial to provide lunch areas for staff as most people eat at their desk or beside patients in the shared cafeteria. Also may be helpful to provide management training to supervisors/ managers/ PI's.

    I have been working at University Health Network full-time

    Pros

    Large organization, room for growth and movement. Good environment and staff. Standard hospital hours.

    Cons

    Benefits aren’t great, often employ casuals who work full time hours so they don’t have to pay benefits. They don’t pay in lieu of benefits which is standard in most hospitals.

    I have been working at University Health Network part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The frontline staff: nurses, hospital assistants, and technicians are very friendly and compassionate.

    Cons

    High turnover rate of nursing staff. Incredibly high nursing burnout rates. They practice like an American hospital. It's all about the bottom line. They forget that patients and staff are people.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to save money, don't let your staff turnover. You will end up spending more money constantly training people, and the good ones will go somewhere else.

    I worked at University Health Network full-time

    Pros

    Pays pretty well
    Great co-workers
    Great hours (9-5, weekend off)
    Benefits aren't bad - if you want vacation it's based on seniority.

    Cons

    Management isn't pretty poor
    Extreme hierarchies with doctors - management doesn't do much about it
    Expect to be blamed for everything and management to not do anything about it (will scold you even if it's not your fault)
    Barely get a raise (don't expect a raise from cost of living fluctuations - it's not taken account for)
    Patients are rude

    Advice to Management

    Maintain a healthy work environment among all staff - hierarchy is extremely prevalent.
