Research Technician II (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 July 2013
Working environment is lab dependent, because each lab is running by individual Principal Investigator. Overall, I found it is comfortable working in UHN, because there are rules that protecting employee. Co-workers are friendly and helpful. However, the job security is not so good because research labs are depending on funding.

Management and leadership is very politically professional. The more you work, the more responsibilities are imposed with not pay raise or recognition also some managers will take all the credit of your hard work. If they like you continue to stay on-board if not, you will be harassed till one resign. HR is only to help out the Managers. Policies are compromised for the higher ups.
Work load is tremendous and expectations with multitasking, attention to details from assistants is top priority. One can easily get stressed and burn out.
Good benefits but they don't match up to other companies out there
No time for lunch and time be wasted over unnecessary meetings and minute taking.

I love working at UHN, people are friendly and helpful. I feel like i am part of a team. Everybody does their job very well. A typical day at work starts with an early morning experiment, cleaning and organizing my bench followed by answering emails or writing up protocols.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 March 2017
Typically schedules are 12 hours, can get busy with little support depending on the unit you work for. Management is different in different departments and can be described by personal opinions on an individual basis. The workplace culture I worked for worked best in a teamwork type of fashion which help clients in an efficient manner. The more enjoyable part of the job include the colleagues you work with, all are very supportive. The hardest part of the job is workload.

TGH is a great and dynamic place to work with young and energetic staff that work amazing together as a team. The hardest part would be the long hours but the work we do is so amazing that it makes it worth it.
Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 August 2016
UHN is great training ground to get to know the non-for-profit industry. There are many opportunities to move around internally; this is fully supported by the senior management team to allow the development of expertise in different areas within the organization.
The organization is motivated by revenue generating
Manager, Education Technology and Media Services (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 July 2016
However, the non-profit organization can not be motivated by revenue generated, unless is a business oriented. It is a great company to work for, but not with the current management style: work more hours with no extra pay - no work-home balance.
