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.
- Policies are not followed by management but management is not held accountable or reprimanded for breaches in policy - Abuse of staff who are too afraid to say anything - If you don't like being bullied look somewhere else to work - speak up and everything will get twisted and you will be targeted
Met some good people
low pay, dishonest people in leadership roles, bullying.
Manager, Facilities (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 May 2016
Such a huge organization, it is easy to feel insignificant. My Director was amazing as well as my VP. The management teams are super smart and very approachable. HR has demonstrated their lack of grit.
VOLUNTEER (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 January 2016
I started volunteering with UHN in Toronto, Ontario, Canada since November 2015. I decided to volunteer as I recently graduated from Medical school and looking to avail my time until residency starts. I help provide cardiac support and also, volunteer recruiting patients for an ongoing cardiac research study in Toronto General Hospital. Everyone is very pleasant.
Research Support - Volunteer position (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 January 2016
I feel fortunate to work in the largest research and teaching institution, collaborating with top researchers and clinicians. I have received support from the staff and management. I have develop skills and gained experience. I have excellent co-workers. Job security is not good because research depends on funding.
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 January 2016
Healthcare is a difficult world to advance in because the academic qualifications for advancement from administrative to policy-related work are very steep. If you like people, I recommend a clinical setting for administrative work (ie appointment scheduler) over general administration, which can be tedious and very dull.
Good benefits, good location (downtown Toronto)
Few opportunities to advance beyond admin assistant level
RN (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 December 2015
I am currently working there and seeking new opportunities. In the acute care hospital setting I've learned to stay calm and work on my feet as it can become very busy. Despite the fast paced environment, I've continued to practice safe client centered care based on hospital protocols and CNO standards.
always feel comfortable to express any views on anything regarding job and workplace
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 October 2015
- the most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you have helped someone (the patients). - I have always felt I was a good fit at UHN because everyone I have met definitely seems to be there for the patients
