I worked at University Health Network as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Friendly team, work in a family atmosphere instead of a company.

Cons

The IT team is just small, so may not have as many collaborations as in a big team.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at University Health Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The research environment at UHN is cutting-edge, dynamic and collaborative. Many teaching hospitals around with lots of expertise

    Cons

    While many postdoctoral research fellows across Canada are now recognized as university employees (including postdoctoral fellows at the University of Toronto as of September 2013), those at University Health Network continue to be viewed as trainees. As such, our salary ($40,000/year/no benefits) is treated as a fellowship and is not currently insurable i.e. we are not allowed to contribute to the employment insurance (EI) program and therefore cannot claim EI for sick leave, maternity leave and such... Yet we still have to pay taxes... Overall, this makes for a rather unsecure work environment that is not rewarding at all given all the hours we pour into the research.

    Advice to Management

    UHN must recognize that academic research relies heavily on hard-working smart postdocs and should treat them with more respect by recognizing they are highly valuable employees.

    I urge UHN to pay your half of EI benefits!!!
