    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.

    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.
