    I worked at Toronto Rehab part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation package, great population to work with (brain injury, stroke rehab), adequate training. Good entry level position for an experienced therapist.

    Cons

    As part time/casual staff, the position was very isolated. Limited interdisciplinary conversations. Often a higher workload than time to complete (i.e., documentation on own time). Pagers were often broken. Scheduling of sessions is on the white board.

    Advice to Management

    For scheduling I strongly suggest a digital system, or weekly print outs of the different sessions. I found the white board was often out of date/incorrect. Resulting in clients not ready for sessions (in bed).

    I would suggest point system notes in the file re: comments made during rounds, so that casual/part-time staff has access to PT/OT/NSG goals/concerns.

    Pros

    Great reputation
    Excellent research facilities: HomeLab and environment simulators
    Management strives to be the best
    Great location

    Promote collaboration between members of the different teams through social or professional development initiatives.
    Provide spaces for teamwork

    Pros

    I interned at the Rumsey centre. The people were very helpful and quite possibly the friendliest environment I've ever worked at. Great presentations during the months for continual education. Wish I could have gotten a paid position there.

    Cons

    Nothing that should deter someone from applying.

    I have been working at Toronto Rehab (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My unit has a very supportive atmosphere. Patient care is central to the team.

    Cons

    I don't have enough experience to state the cons. The challenge I have recently encountered is more of an individual's issue re: scheduling at my unit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I worked at Toronto Rehab as an intern

    Pros

    Good experience. If you're into clinical research, this is a great place to be. Get exposure to different fields, operating methods, and well-respected scientists. Certainly a great place to start.

    Cons

    Like all places, there can a few that spoil everything for others. With the team I was on communication was not strong. You can be on the receiving on the end of their personal stress especially when you're at the bottom in the hierarchy.

    Advice to Management

    Clear communication within the team especially from supervisors is needed.
