    Pros

    hardly any other than with the broader goal to serve and deliver electronic health record.

    Cons

    Most biased and blind folded executives especially at director level. Internal politics at its worst and you only get hired or promoted if you know or acquaint to one of these directors. All crap you have to do and deal since you are not part of the sweet heart group.

    Advice to Management

    For the sake of delivering eHealth stop wasting tax payers money for the redundant managers who barely have any role and just an eyewash to execs. Hire someone productive with 1/2 the money rather than paying 6 figs. to your long known manager friend.

    Pros

    I feel that I can share all the pros of eHealth Ontario here as there are so few, and most come with some form of con. The salary was decent for someone that just got out of college. I would call that acceptable for about the first year. My department had eventually gotten around to implementing a work from home policy after seeing other teams have such privileges, which was a nice touch. Some managers see the benefit of promoting within, others hire their buddies. The location was pretty good being close to the entertainment district of Toronto and being in walking distance to Union.

    Cons

    Like I said, most pros of working at eHealth has a con. There were no raises that were given out regardless of how you performed - this greatly affects morale on a personal level and on a company-wide level. The work from home policy was subsequently called into question after people started abusing it (chaining work-from-home days with weekends to have a long weekend, not responding to emails/calls, or simply not being online). There is a generalized feeling of cautiousness about taking systems offline due to lack of knowledge about the systems themselves. Thanks to the number of previous scandals preceding my time at eHealth, procuring services and products can take many months chasing down approvals from management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so afraid to make certain decisions "because we want to stay out of the Star/media". Your employees are not engaged in the overall mission, be more transparent with them regarding what's happening at the senior level.

    Pros

    Used to have great vision and mission. If you are a mid level manager or up, this is the place to be. Management has complete control in this place. Every policy in this place ends with "At Manager's discretion".

    Cons

    Mission has been watered down, leadership is clueless, environment is politicized. Only place hiring managers are allowed to interview their friends and previous employees AND hire them. Supposed to be a technology driven place, but, it is scary how technically incompetent the people getting hired of late really are. I have a reason to be in this office location. Once that reason ends, I am out of here.

    Advice to Management

    The agency is too far gone for advise to management.

    No growth, no increases year after year. outdated systems that do not talk to each other. management does not think outside the box. low level of engagement year on year.
