It's all Politics

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It's all politics at HHS. It's more about who you know and who likes you. Management has their favorites. You will not advance here. HR department is corrupt. Some staff are miserable as they've seen alot of cutbacks and changes and not for the good. The Hospital itself is not clean. Patient care no longer exists and it's unfortunate as it's outta our hands. My coworkers are what keep me going everyday.

Ok to work here

I am Just a new employee but my experience for the most part has been good. My co workers have been very helpful and supportive. I don't usually see management unless there's a problem.

Culture was inclusive and management was fair and open

I felt that the management was fair and encouraging. The team was very helpful. Difficult onboarding with Covid, and staff working remotely. There is lots of support and opportunity for growth.

Best Job Ever

This Is by far the best job I ever had. The pay is exceptionally competitive and rewarding. It does not have the burnout effect of other hospital umbrella Corps.

Excellent place to work

This is a wonderful place to work with highly skilled staff. I enjoyed the teamwork and was proud to be part of this team. Being part of the nursing resource team really opened my eyes to the number of learning opportunities at this hospital.

Horrible toxic culture

Horrible and toxic work culture. Management are selfish; they have a complete lack of respect for front line workers. Minimal support. Front line staff are burnt out, moral is low.

McMaster OR is a great place to work but the Organization does not value its employees

Loved working in the Operating Room at McMaster. So honestly, I'd give it a 4.5. The Paediatric OR has some excellent, positive and energetic staff and the majority of the staff (Nurses, Doctors) are great team-players with a common goal to provide great patient care and have a great day doing it. If you love the OR but aren't one for daily trauma cases, this is the place for you! Unfortunately the organization itself is very impersonal and does not recognize when its staff go above and beyond (rated 3). They are not respectful of staff members schedules (especially during the pandemic). Any (and all) vacation requests may be denied and schedules are subject to change due to "needs of the department" . They try to provide notice but if you're low on seniority you may end up not having a choice (ex. being assigned call). The Master Schedule is not followed well so it's best to just wait till 6 weeks for scheduled time to be posted before you make plans. You may choose to take on additional projects for quality improvement or personal growth but the organization is far enough removed that these things are not recognized. Also, please be mindful of the potential of redeployment with inadequate training (pandemic specific). TLDR: MUMC OR has a positive culture and is a great place to work but the organization is impersonal and does not value its employees.

Toxic work place

Too much at once. Need a new CEO that cares about people. More worried about politics than his own organization and people. Many good people that aren’t acknowledged for their work and bullies promoted. No priorities. Raising concerns punished.


Benefits and pension plan


Toxic culture.

Great place to work and wonderful team!

HHS is a great place to work. Strong leadership team and great colleagues across clinical and non-clinical areas. Healthcare environment is of course challenging, but we work with a lot of inspiring people who really care about the community and patients we serve.

Good job

Great place to work. Had a great boss and good people to work with. Some times can be tough to deal with government management strategies but all and all good.

Awful place to work

Medical staff and management nasty and disrespectful to administrative staff. Excessive workload. Back stabbing culture. Expected more from medical professionals, so was very disturbed by their arrogant attitude. On boarding was good and training provided prior to job start. Pay and benefits good.

Great Place to Work and Great People

Great staff and management was easy to communicate with. Some people obviously there just for the paycheck, but most staff are courteous and care about the quality of care provided and work produced.


Great Cafeteria, Free Staff Lunches 2x per year
