Great experience working with children with a variety of musculoskeltal and developmental disorders
Volunteer (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 1, 2013
Pros: experience with special orthopaedic rehabilition, as well as complex continuing care
Volunteering at Holland-Bloorview opened my eyes to the children most in need of the attention that dedicated volunteers can give. Since many of the patients were under the age of 12, being an active part of of their social maturation, and cognitive development was rewarding in a way that is indescribable. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and the – more... senior staff know their job, and provide all the training for newcomers. – less

In serious need of improvement
Clinician (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 23, 2012
Pros: unique and challenging client population
Cons: poor management, lack of staff recognition, terrible cafeteria food, dark minuscule gym, new staff need to park in offsite lot and walk 10 min.
The best part of the day was definitely the clients and their families and the feeling that you had made a difference in someone's life. Front line staff are extremely dedicated and knowledgeable -- they stay because of their dedication in spite of ridiculous and backwards management style. Upper management in particular needs to give their collective – more... heads a shake. They would like to see this organization run like an assembly-line factory without realizing that these are people that we are dealing with, not products. There are many practices that are not client-centred at all and which are intended to push as many people through as possible without consideration for the quality of work. In the last year that I was there I saw many staff quit in frustration or who were fired for not toeing the party line. Abysmal HR department that does nothing to support staff. Salary is not in line with other hospitals. Extremely poor morale -- I left in part because I couldn't stand to listen to all the complaining about the toxic work environment. To call this one of GTA's "top" employers is a joke. – less
