Favouritism rules here.
Communications Specialist (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 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.
Pros
Free leftover sandwiches and salads after management meetings
Cons
Ineffective management, lack of personal growth, oppressive work culture

Toxic environment

It didn't take me long before I realize how toxic the environment is. Very autocratic management approach with absolutely no room of advancement.......

It is a not security place to work
HQO (Current Employee) –  Toronto24 September 2015
No respect for your work, no good communication within team, no your different voice, no security for your work and no good management.

If you really want to join, be careful!!! Don't be fool. Watch your work and speed, they just want to take over your work, and then let you go.

If you are not so smart to deal with those people, give up!

Not such a great place
No part of the "Elite" (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 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.
Pros
You get a paycheck
Cons
You spend your lunch hour looking for another job
