    I have been working at The Ottawa Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - There are a lot of options to move around to change specialties or enter into management roles. - 24 hour food options - RACE team is very reliable and accountable - Many renovations lately to modernize the units - Bed-specific electronic blood pressure machines at the bedside - Omnicel electronic drug cabinet - Staffing workers genuinely try to grant time off if possible

    Cons

    - Poor funding priorities (concierge to hold elevators open as a full-time position? I feel like that could be a volunteer position and not an extra weight on our massive debt...) - Change takes a LONG time to be in effect because it's such a massive company - Still paper charting - Beds keep opening and closing causing staffing issues

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Notice how much sick time there has been hospital-wide? You're burning us out. Stop trimming the support services and replacing them with things much more convenient for yourselves.

    I worked at The Ottawa Hospital

    Pros

    People I worked with were really nice, always willing to help

    Cons

    Not too many cons, I guess I didn't have my own office, but it didn't matter because there were desks I could work at or work from the library or home.
