I worked at The Ottawa Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great experience and hands on training in biomedical research. Excellence programs for students preparing to do an honours project in biochem or related field. Organized seminars to gain experience presenting and asking questions. Exposure to graduate students for those interested in grad school. Included in the scientific publication process.

Cons

Lots of work. Unpaid overtime. You do not work shifts, it is salary based and sometimes your experiments require that you stay late, come in early and even come in on the evening and weekends when necessary. Pay is reasonable but not as good as coop opportunities in the gov't for instance. You must be a competitive candidate academically to be considered by most labs.

Advice to Management

Seem to know what you are doing, no problems here.

    I have been working at The Ottawa Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Location being in the capital city with so many cultures which adds to the life experiences of being aware of the population needs.

    Cons

    Shift work has always been a deterrent to a promotion of healthy lifestyle, however, have to live the good, bad and the ugly.

    Advice to Management

    Your front line workers are what makes the management greater. More of a wiser healthier choice for relaxation and dietary improvements would be helpful.
