Senior Analyst of Performance Management (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 October 2017
As the Ontario government’s advisor on the cancer and renal systems, as well as on access to care for key health services, Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) drives continuous improvement in disease prevention and screening, the delivery of care and the patient experience for chronic diseases.

Poor experience and Poor Management with now room to grow
Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 September 2017
Working at Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) is a mixed bag. Employees are generally nice to everyone and are pleasant to work with. They pay fairly well and have a pretty flexible work schedule. The major problem there is that Management and beyond are not on the same page. The back and forth between them and their employees is horrid at best. There is a distinct lack of ownership on the part of management often placing the blame on their employees instead. Advancement is non-existent for the most part. Its very rare to see someone be promoted from within with Management seemingly preferring to bring in externally. Because if this, employees seem to become very bitter as they continue to work and get passed on.

I wouldn't recommend working at CCO unless it was on contract. Permanent placement can be great at first but after that first year, the wrinkles begin to show and it become more and more frustrating to deal with

Great cause to work for, HR and bureaucracy issues need improvement
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 June 2017
Great employees to work with. work from home culture needs improvement as meeting rooms are limited and desk sharing is not an option. Management communication to staff is poor. Managers need to be results oriented and stop micro managing staff.
Pros
salary
Cons
Hr, bureauracy

Not for Private Sector Workers
Campaign & Correspondence Dev/PM Consultant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 May 2017
A noble cause led by tried and true public sector folks who are neither driven nor terribly interested in making plans come to fruition. Poor fiscal oversight, frightening management, zero team culture.
Pros
Work hours are precisely 9 - 4:30
Cons
No place for driven, dedicated workers.

Lack of Learning Opportunity
Project Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 January 2017
There is a lot of red tape and politics which makes it hard to get things done and improve existing processes. The agency is small and is very difficult to advance and get promoted to a higher position. There is a lack of learning opportunity. The agency doesn't promote continuously learning and there is lack of funding for training. It is a long winded process to make a case to get funding for training. It doesn't promote or try to obtain talent from within the organization. Thus, this leads to high turnover. It is a waste of taxpayers money.
Pros
Work Life Balance
Cons
Lack of learning opportunity and advancement

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 December 2016
Management is poor, minimal guidance given, salary is minimal, everybody working 9-7pm like it's normal. No advancement at all, it seems they have high turnover because of low salary.

Project Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 November 2016
Cancer Care Ontario is a great place to work. Management is extremely supportive and works hard to ensure that staff are being used to their full potential. The emphasis on career and personal development is apparent through their professional development initiatives. The work is meaningful and fulfilling.

A organisation in decline with an inept senior management team who cannot see the forest for the trees
Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 July 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, ON19 August 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.
