    I worked at St. Michael's Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Good housekeeping. Sorry that was all I could think of.

    Cons

    1) No management. They can't keep a unit manager so they use temp managers that hold other positions already in the hospital. So expect the bare minimum. 2) there is no comraderie among staff at all. Even better they look for stuff on each other to bring back to upper management in order to get some type of recognition 3) not the safest environment; security sits in a room monitoring the TV's (one which includes a cable TV), more on the defensive rather than offensive.. meaning you'll get attacked by a patient and then they come running rather than being present to prevent issues. 4) if you like an environment where it's the norm that patients talk to you like a piece of garbage and you go home hating humanity just a little bit more everyday then this is the place for you. 5) no reliable resources for the patients so guess who gets stuck telling them you're on your own (see #4) 6) who likes parking in an employee lot that's 3 blocks away and you still get to pay for it?!?

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared to deal with some fun hospital politics. 8 managers in 5 years should give you a pretty good idea about this place.

    I worked at St. Michael's Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Good values, lots of positions for all types of healthcare professions, room for career advancement, and lots of specialties which makes it stand out from other downtown hospitals.

    Cons

    Large corporation, sometimes you can feel anonymous. Pro or con: a lot of the clients/patients are marginalized with socio-economic and mental health disadvantages.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of the value of your employees. There is corporate change happening which isn't valuing employees as much as it should.
