    Pros

    You get to work with incredibly dedicated, talented and passionnate people. The Hospital has initiated a very positive shift towards being an employer of choice. This also involves better performance management, which is a good thing if you're a hard worker; a bad thing if you're not. If you're not willing to give your 100% despite often difficult circumstances, please look for a job elsewhere. Slackers don't last... long here anymore - thankfully!

    Cons

    This is a public hospital. We lack resources at every level, so you have to lower your expectations of the scope and speed of change. Same disadvantages of any organisation this large (13 000+ employees) - bureaucracy; slow-moving, but very well-intentioned.

    Advice to Management

    Try your best to get to know your staff. It pays off.

    I worked at The Ottawa Hospital

    Pros

    Great people on the medical side, they are committed to patient care. Great place for yes people and group think.

    Cons

    Lots of silos, not much trust, never ending back office flaming and slagging. Its like 'house of cards' in the hospital.

    Advice to Management

    You pitch this culture of caring, but the culture is poison. Stop tolerating bad behavior starting with Sr. Management. I've heard horrible things from the mouths of Directors that I've never heard anywhere else. Its unprofessional and it shows in your organizational competencies.

    Competitive wages and benefits package

    Bureaucratic structure; necessary for an institution but results in a lot of red tape.

    Consult with staff from all departments and from all levels on a regular basis.
