    Cons

    A manager I dealt with showed favouritism and was very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and include end users when implementing changes

    Pros

    Beautiful safe environment to work for in a hospital. Clean Hospital. A good hospital for new nurses to gain experience and skills. Friendly proactive staffs.

    Cons

    Needs improvements in management. Short staffed especially in weekends and holidays always. No Union. Too many injuries amongst the nurses-just means they are overwhelmed and overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Before making changes on the floor or units please seek advise from the staff first.

    I have been working at Markham Stouffville Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The hospital has good coworkers and lots of Opportunities for growth. Even though it is a smaller place the pay is comparable to other hospitals. Overall it is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Within this hospital there are politics but no worse than anywhere else. Recent expansion was good but there are cuts sometimes.

    Pros

    Nice new hospital in a community that continues to grow. A good majority of the management team care about their patients and staff. The building is lovely and new but signs of deterioration is starting with dirty units, marks on the walls and dirty floors.

    Cons

    The management team care until it's 1630 and they are off to their respective homes. We're often assigned more patients then normal because we don't have a robust resource pool to pull from. If we get agency in then we must pitch in because they can't use our system. I work at another hospital where the situation is much better because they have a Staffing Office. Sometimes equipment cannot be found or is broken and nobody does anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Help fix the nursing shortage... this isn't North Bay people it's Markham. Come in on an evening shift or weekend and see what the hospital is really like, I despise the 9-5 management types.

    I worked at Markham Stouffville Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The long term staff are wonderful and care about the hospital and community. Core values and treatment of patients is still in tact for the time being. Don't let this senior management team ruin the reputation of this once fine hospital.

    Cons

    New management team. Don't have a clue and don't care about MSH's amazing history. They make decisions that make you scratch your heading wondering how they operate. Mean spirited, patronizing, in it for themselves and no concept on how things really work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing your friends to work with you. The best team leaders are leaving MSH for other hospitals all because of you. Karma will prevail.

    Pros

    If you are a patient you'll receive great care from all staff. It is a caring place if you are a patient or visitor.

    Cons

    Workload is crazy. They don't give us any food options for lunch (Subway) like other hospitals do. The new management team even took Tim Hortons away why I don't know it was always busy????
    Old CEO was friendly and smiled and told jokes - new management team doesn't care about the staff only money.

    Advice to Management

    Support the staff better. Don't hide in your nice offices come out and see how much work we have to do.

    Pros

    High paced. Definitely not bored! Excellent Customer Service and working environment. Team spirit through departments. Excellent management team with full support to their employees.

    Cons

    Some staff are not respectful of other's positions or job responsibilities. Being aware that everyone has and does their part to effectively create a positive patient experience is most important.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
