      Pros

      Great experience with the team and the physicians

      Cons

      Management is unfortunately the problem. Managers are not trained at all or they are just hiring the wrong people. Also not much room to grow after a certain point. They don’t want to retain talent that’s leaving despite the huge turnover rate.

      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.
