    Pros

    Progressive leadership aiming to implement forward thinking strategies.

    Cons

    Not all portfolios within the organization work at the same caliber, which leads to inefficiency and slows down the ability to implement change.

    Many leaders are burnt out due to large workloads with diminishing resources.

    I worked at William Osler Health System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Continuous learning opportunities, multitasking work style, team work and staff appreciated for work done. State of the art equipment.

    Cons

    24/7 work hours, extremely busy and high volume work loads, stressful, difficult to get a stable full time position-part time opportunities more common. Recent restructure eliminated several very qualified employees with no optic improvements. Workload stress for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Manager insists on over micro-managing and is not open to alternative suggestions. It would be awesome to see more autonomy at the supervisory/departmental level. Need to improve staffing pools. Need to look at departmentalization of some departments - expertise is on the decline.

    I worked at William Osler Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had fantastic co-workers, dedicated and caring.

    Cons

    No visible management, no direction. Expected to drive results with little or no direction or support from senior management. Too many management layers from team leads to supervisors to managers to directors to executive directors to executive VP's to VP's and up. Too many layers creates too much bureaucracy and nothing gets done. Managers are too stretched, some managing multiple depts. with hundreds of staff.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to review the "layers" and their effectiveness. Provide support and direction to staff so they're not left to flounder on their own.

    "Toxic and political"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Corporate
    Current Employee - Corporate

    Pros

    Good role, lots of exiting work

    Cons

    Toxic environment. Political. Poor performers stay because they are liked and high performers may be bullied out because they are a threat to incompetent management.

    Advice to Management

    Job security and recognition should be based on performance not because you are liked. It's ridiculous that people are promoted even though they never have delivered anything and have even displayed bullish behaviour and burned relationships with key partners

    I have a fabulous team that I work with

    I have been working at William Osler Health System part-time

    Pros

    Worked here for a few years now. It's a good community hospital for new grads to develop their skills.
    Good employee benefits program.

    Cons

    The senior staff is not receptive to helping new grads learn. I've moved around to a few departments and find that this is common.
    It's also understaffed and find that you are overworked.
