    I have been working at Kingston General Hospital part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great... there are often opportunities to explore other careers within the hospital.

    Cons

    Thanks to Compass, hours are cut... and everyone is expected to do more than they are able. Patients suffer as a result of employees not having the time to do a good job.
    (meal orders aren't taken, things are not cleaned properly...)

    Advice to Management

    Compass is horrible... I used to take pride in my ability to get my work done in a timely manner, now I am constantly stressed because there is NEVER enough time to get to every patient.

    Pros

    none none none none none

    Cons

    Most poisonous environment a person could work in. Ignorant and bullying management. Staff are always asked for input on how to improve moral at KGH and it never changes, Thousands of dollars spent on employee improvement through surveys while I was employed at KGH and they were a waste of time. As well even this survey is insufficient in collecting data. I left KGH in 2009 and can only pick from your drop down the earliest year of 2012.

    Advice to Management

    Complete overhaul. Managers at KGH have no clue what the front runners do. Managers at KGH are never open to changes to improve moral instead they hire company's to come in and do bogus surveys or hold team playing sessions that only take staff away from their duties and everyone who has to attend these sessions leave complaining about them and how ridiculous they are and don't make any changes whatsoever.

    I worked at Kingston General Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in a large hospital there are positive benefits being an employee; i.e. H.R. support; pastoral care which can be very beneficial, particularly if one looses a loved one during their employment.

    Cons

    The hours can be long.

    Pros

    Great team of people to work with. Plenty of time to complete projects. Decent pay with a good pension and benefits

    Cons

    Typical government office where it takes ages to get approval and signatures. Too many meetings. Sometimes it feels like you are meeting to setup a meeting. Nothing is based on merit. Everything is based on time served

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all staff members, not just the select few that meet a predetermined criteria. Fix the discrepancy in salaries between people doing the same job.
