    Pros

    -Opportunity to improve research and critical thinking skills.
    -Promotes interest in human physiology and medical devices.
    -Can open doors to future career opportunities in bio-medical devices.
    -Variety of projects available (dependent on supervisor).
    -Limited supervision gives you the chance to practice independent working skills.
    -Flexible hours are a "Pro" in helping to get projects done, if time is used wisely.

    Cons

    -Flexible hours are a "Con" in maintaining a work-life balance
    -Project progression is somewhat slow; just the nature of a research environment as opposed to a business one.
    -If you don't have an interest in bio-medical devices, and you already have 2+ years of R&D work experience (regardless of what field), then there is little more to offer here.

    Advice to Management

    -Continue the interaction between researchers and clinicians.

    Pros

    Decent starting salary, good benefits and vacation, lots of courses offered internally to take online or through in-class instructor led courses.

    Cons

    The work life balance is OK, not many opportunities to grow and take on other responsibilities as you develop new skills.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
