A organisation in decline with an inept senior management team who cannot see the forest for the trees
Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONJuly 4, 2016
There is a total lack of vision and rudimentary understanding of integrated provincial health care delivery systems at the Executive level. No idea how to collaborate with regional stakeholders and their information systems to effectively manage data and outcomes.

This leads to continuous wasteful spending of tax payer dollars by duplication of effort, fixing poor quality data or continually changing strategy and direction after never ending consultation and evaluation.
Anyone who disagrees or attempts to offer alternative viewpoint is marginalised and forced out.

HR only serves the senior management team to terminate dissenters, never asks or enquires as to what the root cause of the constant turmoil is. HR now attempting to drive down salaries by offering reduced earnings to staff who want to move internally.

Be cautious about working at CCO for the long term, this is an organisation going down hill fast.
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
Revolving door and numerous recent resignations and manager terminations, lots of fluff and no substance within the senior executive team.

Organization with good people and ambitious goals
Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONAugust 19, 2015
CCO has a good group of people who have a lot of fun work activities to increase morale and allow people within the organization to get to know each other. A lot of restructuring has happened with different departments/units however that has caused a lot of instability with current coworkers and their positions.

Hard to get contract renewed, but a fantastic opportunity
ASSOCIATE ANALYST (JR. DEVELOPER) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONFebruary 25, 2014
Other than the fact that it's hard to get a renewal for contractors, or even shift into a permanent position, CCO is a fantastic place to work and I enjoyed my time there. I learned a few new skills from this place and was glad to give my contribution to the fight against cancer. Not many people talk to each other though...
Pros
great pay, management is very open and transparent
Cons
hard to stay there, employee interaction is minimal

Interesting Work, feel like you make a difference
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONMarch 21, 2013
Overall, a great place to work. Pay is generally good, and the work is usually interesting, and you end up feeling like what you do will actually make a difference in the provincial cancer system.

There isn't much of a corporate culture, and the workforce is a bit older, so there is generally little socializing. Hours are good, and there is usually no need to stay late.

No formal advancement program.
Pros
good pay, interesting work
Cons
lack of culture

Good salary, benefits & job security; but no culture, incentive to stay, and little work life balance
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONApril 19, 2013
I have worked at Cancer Care Ontario for two years. Most of the people that work there are friendly and educated, however, there is a lot of corporate policy which gets in the way of getting work done.

While the pay and benefits are fairly good, there is little to no culture at the company. Most of the workers come in and force a smile in the morning and are gone at 5pm with little or no social aspect.

If you are simply looking for a job and are comfortable without much ability to advance, no bonuses, and little social/culture in the company you may be satisfied.
Pros
pay, work hours
Cons
no corporate culture, corporate policy makes it difficult to do your job

Excellent company to work for. Excellent management staff. Provides an excellent opportunity for staff to grow.
EA to the VP, CFO (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONSeptember 7, 2012
A typical day at work is administrative functions and to ensure that the office of the VP is run smoothly. Calendar management and coordination of meetings. A fast paced environment. Concentration on details. Learned a lot from being in the organization for the past 16 years growing intellectually and responsibility-wise. Excellent management staff in place to guide the organization every step of the way. Good morale amongst staff. Do not believe a job is hard if you have the right attitude and the aptitude to learn and perfect it. The most enjoyable part of the job is you are given more and more responsibility because the management has confidence in your ability to perform.
Pros
great environment offered by the company.
Cons
don't believe there is any.
