    I worked at University Health Network full-time

    Pros

    State of the art facilities, canadas biggest hospital, great minds, great resources, great research environment

    Cons

    some politics, salary is lower than a comparable position in industry or in the US, need more mentoring, work life balance can be tough, need more talented people to make use of the great facilities

    Advice to Management

    make the salaries more competitive so that you're not losing top talent to industry and abroad. Keep up the momentum with infrastructure, and invest more in talent

    Pros

    UHN is a network of hospitals so you have a great opportunity for collaboration with different research areas. The research facilities are very well equipped.

    Cons

    Because you are working in a hospital there are a lot of bureaucracy and paper work to fill in every year.

    Advice to Management

    It really depends on you r supervisor.

    Pros

    Pension matching was 126% of my contribution up to a yearly max. Flexible hours and performance system was transparent

    Cons

    Slow movement upwards and many times too difficult to get a raise

    Advice to Management

    Raises were not permitted, job titles were too restrictive, retention of talent was NOT considered.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at University Health Network full-time for more than 3 years

    World reknown institution, great training, fast-paced, meet a lot of people -- great starting point

    Cons

    Clinic staff can be unwelcoming (and many times rude) to research coordinators; some managers are not open to allowing the entire team to attend conferences and training sessions..they often have their favourites

    Advice to Management

    be more fair and kind
