    They care about their employees, great benefits, solid culture. A good company to be with if you're settling in London.

    Tech isn't cutting edge, skills might fall behind a bit, pace can be too slow

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, and try to challenge your employees. You have a lot of great people and they'll do great work for you if you give them the opportunity.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at London Health Sciences Centre full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Depending on your position you are asked to only work during your expected work hours.
    You get to wear a lot of hats and learn from different experiences because there they try to achieve too much all at once and there is not enough people to do the work.

    Cons

    Any coordinators and up work unrealistic hours. Very difficult to move within the organization unless you have a clinical background. Very toxic and back stabbing king of environment. Very little to no respect among management.

    I worked at London Health Sciences Centre full-time

    Pros

    There's meaningful work being done in the cancer labs. All the pros and cons that come with being research scientist.

    Cons

    I've never had to directly deal with management or any of the politics so there's not much to say about that.

    Advice to Management

    Again, not much to say about management as I've never directly had to deal with them. Heard good and bad things.

    I worked at London Health Sciences Centre full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and good benefits, especially the pension. Lots of departments to move in between if you want a change after a few years.

    Cons

    Most of the leaders have very poor business skills so good decisions are not always made. In addition, generally, speaking up is not safe.

    Advice to Management

    More coordinators are needed - many unit coordinators have more than 100 direct reports.

    I have been working at London Health Sciences Centre full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have some amazing coworkers.

    Cons

    bad treatment of nursing staff. turning nurses against each other so they can achieve their goal and have someone to blame. You can't trust management. You may get fired or eaten (if you know what I mean) when you express an honest review for change. Management / coordinators can throw you under the bus to get to the top.

    Advice to Management

    CLEAN UP IS NEEDED SO BAD! YOU ARE DESTROYING THE HOSPITAL WITH YOUR CEO WHO FIRES ANYONE WHO STANDS UP FOR NURSES!
