      Is this management or Mafia?

      Pros

      Excellent staff with great knowledge base, extensive experience and fantastic work ethics. The technical staff go above and beyond their calling to promote the organisation and work hard to save tax-payers money

      Cons

      Highly bureaucratic and heavy handed top level management with no real administrative or technical qualifications and zero administrative experience, which is definitely going to be the cause of the downfall of this organisation. Leave alone their arrogant demeanour, but their Mafia style actions against staff who question their corrupt process is going to have an immense backlash. It is time for the government to order an audit into the management practices and dissolve this top level management and bring a new management team of qualified and experienced individuals to save tax-payers money.

      Pros

      Positive work culture; collaborative working styles; accessible leaders and transparent communication

      Cons

      Unfortunately the leadership is changing due to merger with other agencies into Ontario Health. Hopefully the culture will be preserved

      Pros

      Has really good benefits. All the teams works really well with each other. Proper communication channels are established. Gives the opportunity to work from home as well 1-2 times per week which is great.

      Cons

      I don't see any cons. May be some processes can be streamlined. Apart from that, it is a really nice place to work.

      Only certain types of people get promoted

      Jul 25, 2019 - Analyst

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great place to work and make a lot of money with little actual work or responsibilities. This only applies to the following: people who never tell managers when something is a really bad idea, people who parrot everything their managers/directors do and say, people who are well connected in the health care field.

      Cons

      If you are an honest, hard working, intelligent worker who cares about making improvements to the healthcare system - this is not the place for you. Your soul will die here. There are a lot of good people at this organization, but it's the bad apples, the smooth talkers, the well-connected people who are promoted into senior positions over the truly qualified. Watch out for people whose first jobs were at HQO, who started out in junior HSP positions and were promoted rapidly to more senior positions within one to three years. These are usually the severely underqualified people who were promoted because they toe the line, don't raise issues with management and say yes to everything. Also watch out for anyone who has been at the organization for more than 5 years who has a job title "Lead" or "Senior __". These people usually lead no one, have no responsibilities, and are drastically overpaid. They have been promoted simply because they have been there the longest and at some point during that time, there was no one better around. They don't leave because they know they will never find a better-paid position anywhere else, at least not one where they can get away with being on Instagram all day long instead of attempting to do anything that might be mistaken for work. Senior staffers who have work experience at other organizations before coming here tend to be better qualified.

      Pros

      Great people and positive environment.

      Cons

      Always have to answer to the ministry, cannot do anything on our own. VERY low salary (especially for admins) compared to other healthcare organizations. Hard to work your way up the ladder, not many opportunities.
