Hard to get contract renewed, but a fantastic opportunity
ASSOCIATE ANALYST (JR. DEVELOPER) (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: great pay, management is very open and transparent
Cons: hard to stay there, employee interaction is minimal
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...

Good salary, benefits & job security; but no culture, incentive to stay, and little work life balance
Project Manager (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 19, 2013
Pros: pay, work hours
Cons: no corporate culture, corporate policy makes it difficult to do your job
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 – more... 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. – less

Interesting Work, feel like you make a difference
Project Coordinator (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 21, 2013
Pros: good pay, interesting work
Cons: lack of culture
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 – more... no need to stay late.

No formal advancement program. – less

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
Pros: great environment offered by the company.
Cons: don't believe there is any.
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 – more... 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. – less
