    Positive Outlook

    I worked at CAMH

    Pros

    Flexibility, working in an environment where education, compassion and intelligence are encouraged. Some of the best human beings on the plant work for CAMH and I was proud to be a member of this organization. The work CAMH does has meaning and influence on a daily basis. This is an organization which surpasses the standards it sets for itself, and provides a level of care not matched anywhere else in mental health.... CAMH is simply an extraordinary organization with wonderful clients and employees.

    Cons

    Oscassional vicarious traumas, shift work, lack of advancement unless you complete a significant level of education (e.g. If you have not completed a PhD your opportunities can be limited in certian fields).

    Advice to Management

    Shift work can challenging. Sometimes there is a lack of work/life balance as a result of the stresses of departmental demands. Other than that keep doing what you are doing. This is the best company I have ever worked for and I miss being a CAMHer.
