    Pros

    great company feeling, they care about employee health and well being. A very caring and nurturing environment for all employees to work at

    Cons

    too many employees, with less you can do more. It is a controlled environment so not necessarily needing too many bodies- help out budget

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give a little

    I worked at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre part-time for 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.

    I have been working at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people that I work with are very personable. There are free courses that Sunnybrook offers to encourage leadership building. There is a perk site that employees can use to purchase tickets for different events, like musicals, cineplex movie tickets, dave and busters etc. There is a free gym and shuttles that can be used by employees.

    Cons

    Some challenges of working here are some of the people that you work with. However, wherever you go there will always be challenges with working with certain people. Also, it is difficult to achieve a higher position due to the minimal openings of larger positions. Although, this may be true everywhere else as well.

    On a more serious note, there are times when the management isn't completely fair to all people and take the sides of favorable people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would upgrade the gym to encourage healthy living amongst employees. Have employee discounts when purchasing food at the hospital.

    Most importantly, ensure that the values of the company are met in all departments (though it is difficult to implement) through an online annual feedback taken by all employees.
