    Complex, Rewarding Challenges

    Current Employee - Client Program Manager  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Client Program Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at eHealth Ontario full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work is incredibly challenging, complex, brilliant and committed people to work with. Many share the same goal - to provide an EHR to Ontarians and will do what ever it takes to get it done. Salaries are competitive, good benefits.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic environment, lots of barriers to push through. Can take a huge toll on motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and promote within. Liston and address employee concerns.

  2.  

    Overall, for a government agency it's not that bad.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at eHealth Ontario full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Only good if you're out of school. Training is encouraged but is subject to manager's discretion. Location is decent for anyone in the downtown Toronto core.

    Cons

    Wage freeze until 2019 thus far. No freebies of any kind. Poor upper management and constant turn over with new visions each and every year. 10/90 rule (10% of the people do 90% of the work and vice versa). Management fires existing long-time employees to open up spots for their friends. Discrepancies amongst departments varies widely due to the "at manager's discretion" open-ended clause on any HR policy. Good team culture is basically non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share one vision instead of a constant tug-of-war with what needs to be done regardless of turn-over.

    I have been working at eHealth Ontario full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Good pay
    - Relax workplace
    - Convenience location
    - Paid training

    Cons

    - Organization has no vision .. still developing since started 11 year ago!
    - Too many management people for this size of organization .... Team Leads, Supervisors, Managers, Sr. Mangers, Directors, Sr. Directors, VP, Sr. VP, CxO, etc .. etc ..... 3/4th of the employees are in management!
    - A lot of duplicate work, huge waste of resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to think seriously about re-structuring the organization .. too many management people .... no need for most of them.

    Horrible place to work - Senior Management is clueless - complete waste of taxpayers money

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at eHealth Ontario

    Pros

    That the government will eventually come to its senses and close this place down and stop wasting a ton of taxpayers money.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. Very low employee morale. Anyone who is talented will leave this dysfunctional place. Favouritism and cronyism runs rampant. Avoid this place if you are serious about your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting taxpayer money!

    I have been working at eHealth Ontario full-time

    Pros

    Ample of training opportunities ..funds for them are sufficient
    Great location and work life balance
    Good team building efforts

    Cons

    Excessive favouritism
    No work ethics
    Rude and bullying managers and some employees too
    No knowledge sharing and old grumpy technology being followed since ages
    A lot of blame games between teams
    No strategic goal of the company as a whole
    Most of the time people are waiting to hand over their tasks to someone else anyhow.
    The managers are hired on personal relations and are simply incompetent. Everyone is simply interested in bitching about others and the old employees like ganging up against the new bright employees. Olis project is a garbage..people are projecting false pride and showing unreliable number. If some one can hear me ..please conduct an audit. The senior business people are wasting time and doing simply nothing for the whole day and still get promoted.
    The work allocated to new employees are trivial and unsuitable for their position. Managers are blunt when it comes to process improvements. A restaurant worker is made a business manager..how and what basis..that's the question.

    I would recommend ..if you have even a bit of talent, believe in yourself and never join this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do look at people's talent and hire better employees and kindly conduct some sessions for behavioural skills for all employees. Team building is good but individuals behaviour cannot be neglected. Please note business teams have good employees as they are the face of the company. Conduct efficient reviews rather then going by favouritism especially for older employees. save tax payers money by removing the inefficient workers.
