    I have been working at University Health Network

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, pension. Work environment is okay.

    Cons

    Organization needs a better communication strategy. Intranet needs to be updated, especially Forms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use a centralized "Communications Team" to disseminate information. No branding or cohesiveness with internal communications.

    I have been working at University Health Network

    Pros

    Good culture. Patient care centric. Everyone has a goal to improve patient care with their projects and program. Large multi-disciplinary hospital and this can get you a lot of exposure to different things.

    Cons

    Growth can be slow. The base salary for an junior job is good but as the level goes up, salary becomes less competitive with market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward staff more frequently when possible.

    Pros

    Lots of UHN initiatives and regional projects to get experience, great work-life balance, good opportunities to expose yourself to different streams/functions, great people to work with. Overall, great company name to have on your resume

    Cons

    In general, career progression is difficult because of the limited merit-based promotions available per year. It is also difficult to negotiate salary upon entering the organization in addition to understanding the calculation for salary increases per year

    I have been working at University Health Network full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    UHN is a huge organization, and there are many different departments or teams. I can say that my team is fantastic, supportive, well organized, and top performers, so my experience has been good. Great food court, many educational opportunities, premier organization that connects you with many high level contacts.

    Cons

    Sometimes, the size works against UHN. You need to know the right people, who know the right people, to get things going.
