About normal.
It's your standard large organization. Some managers are great and some are punching the clock.

Also, like most organizations, diversity is much greater the further down the pay scale you go.


Work-life balance is all right, in theory, but since everything depends on getting approval from your manager, it's very lacking in practice.

Great organization to advance your skills.
Great work life balance and professional co-workers. Great benefits as well. A wide range of teams allows you opportunities to learn new skills and grow. Toronto location is also ideal- close to the go station.

Good benefits and work/life balance
Overall CIHI is a great place to work with friendly and knowledgeable staff, great benefits and work/life balance. It is however, difficult to advance your career at this company.

Great Place to work
CIHI is a very nice place to work with great people, salaries and benefits. Learned something new all the time. The workplace is clean, quiet so you can concentrate on your work but also very social with TGIF's, outdoor BBQ's and Euchre tournaments. The management and departmental teams continually provides updates with Small Talks, Town Halls and presentations of work. Worked on contract and would love to be permanent. If there is an opportunity to work there again I would be more than happy to return.

Fulfilling day at the office
Usually felt fulfilled working despite some challenges.
Hardest part of the job was working with Managers to get their cooperation and buy in to changes. It was also difficult to keep senior management focused on their commitments made to new process management and streamlining of work - business process management adoption.

Most of the developers were young and enthusiastic and wanted to learn and be more proactive in providing solutions.
Pros
Friendly environemnt

Finance Department
This is a very unhealthy environment. They are trying to restructure but it is all cosmetic. If you are a person happy with status quo and not frustrated but red tape then you could be happy here. It is a department where you have no decision making ability and be prepared to have you work completely redone as it passes through the layers of reviews. People in Team Lead Positions are not a fit for the role. They preach they are all about staff but they really aren't. They also do not deal with personal issues.
The rest of the company does amazing work and has really fantastic people but work life balance is challenging due to workload and timelines but the program areas do amazing work!

Canadian Institute for Health Information was a great place to work with good benefits. You can feel proud that you are helping to improve healthcare for all Canadians. The location is excellent right along the Ottawa River.

Many promoted to positions that they are not qualified to do, and those qualified, are not even considered.

Benefits package is great.


Salary not matched to responsibilities; too low, and most not encouraged to seek changes.

Was a good place to work but that has changed. Morale is low
The company was a great place to work but that changed under the direction of the new CEO. Staff is uncertain of their future and the morale is low.
