    I worked at Sickkids full-time

    Pros

    Overall, an impressive collection of professionals with a shared vision, the net result of which are strong outcomes and leading edge research.

    Cons

    As with any large organization, particularly in the public sector, deadwood tends to accumulate over time. The very nature of the system sometimes prevents timely clean-up of such.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up deadwood more often..
