    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Felt good being a part of a large well run organization. Excellent pay and benefits. Ongoing training available. Depending on the unit (or supervisor), the ability to switch shifts therefore less sick calls.

    Cons

    Micromanagement by inept supervisors. Higher management should investigate supervisors with a history of loosing good workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to front line workers. We know what we're talking about.

    I have been working at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre

    Pros

    The team is very nice, the work is high impact, the pace is moderate. The environment is nice, and the work is interesting. Some of the nicest and most talented people I have met work at Sunnybrook.

    Cons

    Sometimes the project quality varies and the communication channels can be improved. Not much room for personal growth at times but opportunities do exist

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Validate the technical skills of your employees, make sure management has a good sense of the technical challenges that are being addressed and the associated shortcomings.
