    I have been working at Lakeridge Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    LH is part of the ONA union for RN's and thus my job feels very safe and secure. LH offers a great team based environment to work. Great opportunities to move around to the various hospital sites!

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel a lack of support from management and would also appreciate more employee recognition and employee appreciation efforts

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work....I would recommend this employer to anyone looking for a good well paying job.

    I have been working at Lakeridge Health part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great OR staff, moderate pay level, break relief, caring doctors, learning opportunities in the OR suit, teamwork, you feel like you make an instant difference in someones life.

    Cons

    RPN's are not as well respected as RN's, little to no career advancement, unions protect those that should not be protected, very little pay increase, little to no incentive to work harder/do better

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in the shoes of someone that actually works as a care provider, we all understand that pushing paper increases funding but in the process of all that and all the concerns in regards to money I think many forget the fact that we deal with human beings on a daily basis. Not everything is as predictable and emotionless as it is in regular business.

    Pros

    Generally good support from management with some issues - but mostly just personality conflicts

    Cons

    As with most hospitals, this one is understaffed - they need to realize that one person can't do the job of 2-3.

    Advice to Management

    More for the MOH - invest more in your healthcare system.
