    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Kingston General Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some great wards. Pediatrics teams, ICU can be great. Newly renovated wards in Psychiatry and Pediatrics. Lots of comraderie among fellow residents.

    Cons

    The rest of the hospital can be a crumbling dump. Paint peeling off walls in the stairwells, old and smelly carpeting on the wards, and frequently gridlocked bed situations can be stressful

    Advice to Management

    Provide call rooms to psychiatry residents. Budget for more infrastructure improvements. Carpets need to go ASAP.


  2. "Sorely disillusioned and trapped."

    Pros

    The job security is solid due to the union environment and ever-increasing cost of healthcare. The wage is average.

    Cons

    - The union mandates who is hired or promoted based on tenure rather than ability, with zero exceptions. You can not be promoted past the deadwood that has stuck it out.
     - Bureaucracy rules the roost. Half of your time is spent on political emails and meetings.
     - Physicians are generally prima donna's with some notable exceptions.
     - As a whole, clinicians (physicians, nurses, others) resist any form of change, whether positive or not, and are merely content with the status quo.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the department and remove the union, or remove their ability to impede hiring and firing.
