    I have been working at The Ottawa Hospital

    Pros

    Many opportunities to move within the hospital.
    Pay is in keeping with ONA guidelines.
    HR department is helpful.
     Educational opportunities.

    Cons

    Management is difficult and shows favourtism.
    French is really pushed at the the hospital. don't let them tell you it is because we are bilingual..the numbers don't warrant this push except in the minds of the Francophones who work there and want it to be another French first hospital.
    The Civic campus is filthy!
     A lot of gossip, bullying and backstabbing amongst a large portion of nurses.Heard it from nearly every floor at the Civic.
    Cutbacks in the most ridiculous places. They want to cut the RACE team of all things but tend to find money in the budget to build a new cafeteria, and provide nurse hospital wide with lab coats!
    Bad atttitude from many residents and doctors throughout the hospital. EGOS are very big!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to your staff, and not just the select individuals a manager chooses. All staff have valuable input.
    Make it easier to report bad behaviour from the doctors and residents who treat nursing like they have no knowledge or important contributions to make when discussing a patient. They should be listening to the front line workers, they are the eyes and ears of the patients!
    Managers should be held acountable for their behaviour when they treat staff members unfairly and unequally in comparison to other staff members. Nurses should be able to report this without fear of ramifications within their job and work environment.
