Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 January 2018
Absolutely horrible work culture. The turn over rate is incredibly high. The HR here is the worst I've ever seen. Your work is not valued nor recognized. There is no room for advancement. You spend the day wishing you were working elsewhere. Benefits are good but pay is on the low end. They stress employee engagement and development but nothing is really being done. Very low enthusiasm. Not a fun place to work. They have a job description but you are expected to do three times beyond that. Your opinion is asked for but makes no difference in anything.
Communications Specialist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 June 2017
Unless you are part of the "friends and family" group, outsiders will not do well in this organization. Management only promotes their little favourites, those who are constantly patting themselves on their backs while kissing the shoes of management. Workplace culture has never been good; very high staff turnover reflects management's inability to lead, HR is absolutely useless. Watching intelligent staff of clinical epidemiologists, researchers and analysts become angry, frustrated and their efforts unappreciated is a typical work day. The desire to do what is best for Ontario's health care system is often overshadowed by the bloating egos of top management's desire to advance their own careers. Management is fearful of Unions and will do everything in their power to convince new recruits and hires that it is a great workplace, it is not.

Ineffective management, lack of personal growth, oppressive work culture
Quality Improvement Specialist (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 August 2016
The opportunity to build skills in new areas allows greater job satisfaction. The ability to work from home provides for flexibility and travel across the province to meet incredible people in the healthcare field.
No part of the "Elite" (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 February 2015
Poor culture, no support for staff, secretive, if you have a problem keep it to yourself because management doesn't want to hear about it.
Organization lacks true leadership and seen as a lame duck in Ontario.
Spent the team building day in December learning the difference between a hamster, a chipmunk and a chinchilla. Nice way to waste taxpayers money. Meanwhile I get "nickel and dimed" on my expenses to conduct proper business.
