    Pros

    can't think of any worthwhile mentioning

    Cons

    ego too big, slow to action to bring much needed positive change. employees tend to emulate management style, therefore, management needs to be positive leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus on core business objectives

    I worked at The Scarborough Hospital

    Pros

    Good managers in my department
    4 weeks vacation after 5 years of employment

    Cons

    Unionized, which means poor performers can never be fired. If you are a lazy worker, you are all set. If you like to work in a challenging environment with good opportunity for advancement, this is not the place for you. You get to work with some folks who have no passion towards their job or to the patients (unprofessional attitude, taking long breaks, etc).
    Pay is low when compared to other hospitals.
    Lack of training, career advancement for lower level employees. Education assistance amount is pathetic and all education has to be related to your current role.
    External applicants are preferred to internal applicants.They have no interest to train you or give you an opportunity to learn a new job. If you want to move to another function, say from admin to a purchasing role, you are screened out as you do not have the 3-5 years of related experience.

    I have been working at The Scarborough Hospital

    Pros

    Its a hospital. Working as a Nurse in other settings other than a hospital tends to be harder, ie. pay. The pay is decent and one of the highest in Ontario but this is due to the Union.

    Cons

    The hospital has a bad reputation especially due to the link with SARS. Improvements to the hospital is slow and tedious usually due to government cut backs but also management. As with all hospitals respect is based on position, doctors get the most and support services get the lowest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lets work on improving the hospitals reputation. Lets focus harder on patient care. I believe we work really hard especially being one of the busiest hospitals in the GTA. Lets give due to where it should be given.
