Pros: strong culture, world reputation
Cons: strong culture has harmful side effects, culture of blame
Employed at Sickkids for 3 years in Director level role. Organization has strong clinical expertise and worldwide reputation in child health. Research facility is top tier.
Senior management is dysfunctional and lacks fortitude to make routine business decisions - becomes slavish to political decisions that can be harmful.
When issues arise in management, they tend to evolve counter-productively to a culture of blame approach.
