    I have been working at The Ottawa Hospital part-time

    Pros

    Once you develop an efficient routine, job gets much easier. Shift hours don't split your day apart. Very friendly staff. Good pay. Plenty of career opportunities once you are in the system.

    Cons

    Some sites are better than others. Job requires a high level of adaptability

    Advice to Management

    Some places are understaffed, some are overstaffed, an equilibrium would be nice.

    I have been working at The Ottawa Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation and Union "protection".

    Cons

    Budget cutting culture, so lean staffing and supplies. Heavy workloads for front-line staff with little sympathy from upper management. Few opportunities for training and advancement. Bilingual staff have more opportunities. Not much fun in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Appeal to the gov't for more funding. Show your appreciation to frontline staff whenever possible to boost morale. More opportunities for unilingual staff.

    Not alot of "team" players, no rewards for doing your best and Management plays favorites. No control over supplies

    Advice to Management

    Need to get people who work as a team! Supervisors need to stop playing favorites, need more control in the supply department!
