Senior Communications Advisor (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 August 2017
Respectful work environment, good team work and drama-free. It's a technology agency, not a health agency as many people think. Steep learning curve for me which was exciting!

Turnover and turmoil
Director (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 May 2017
While there are many well meaning and smart people at the agency, there are also seat-fillers and lifers who drag the momentum of the agency down. The smart people leave, the dead wood stays.

IT Service Desk Analyst/Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 January 2017
Busy work environment. Learned a lot about teamwork and management. Workplace culture is diverse. A typical day would involve interacting with clients over the phone and resolve their problems by troubleshooting. Hardest part of the job was to interact with individuals with diverse cultural backgrounds and interprete their expectations which was challenging but fun.

Not a great place. But not for the reasons made public.
IT Consultant (Former Employee) –  Toronto25 November 2016
A lot of good, earnest people work here that want to make things better for Ontario's health care services. Sadly, there are too many that hold it back for their own personal reasons or lack of relevant skills to warrant their position in the organization.

Smart people, pushed out, bullied or made to dislike their jobs and quit. Versus, hardliners, lifers and "yes people".

Very disheartening to see many people in charge of things they have none to little experience in. Those who step up to save the day when things go bad are minimized.

The one thing I enjoyed was the scope of the work needed to be done. There was a lot to do and it was challenging and rewarding once it was done. And there was always more to keep you engaged. Sadly, it was marred by many of the staff there who felt threatened by others' progress.
Pros
Good location. Great cause to work for/towards.
Cons
Too politically charged and entrenched by substandard staff.

Project Lead (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 November 2016
A great working environment with friendly and professional colleagues. Best in work-life balance I have experienced in my career. Unfortunately the past CEO's and upper management have tied the agency with scandals and have given it a bad reputation in the public-eye; the nature of the work is complicated and overshadowed by political agendas.

Average workplace
Technical Support (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON8 February 2016
Management could use some work. Very condescending tone. Dont really explain much. "Its just how it works" attitude. Always short staffed, yet they want you to meet service levels. Ask you to take a call while currently on another call. They care about wait times in terms of picking up the call, but once it doesnt look negatively on the stat sheet, the customer can wait as long as they need to with no regard.
Pros
Stress free work
Cons
24/7 operation, 7 min breaks, 30 min lunches

TECHNICAL SPECIALIST/ARCHITECT (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 November 2015
place where is difficult to achieve anything. Lot of managers are terrible and don't have any clue what to do. Criteria for choosing managers is very difficult to understand. It's better to be a politician than a good worker. Some of coworkers are very talented but most of the time demotivated to do their best.
Pros
Flexible time
Cons
To much politics, bad management, bad organization

Working with a fun team is always a plus and have been able to gain loads of knowledge on the health care sector. There are challenges where you try to improve things for the better but will get road blocked by "that is not the way we did it in the past".
Pros
Fun teams
Cons
Very process oriented
