Pretty good overall

For a big hospital, they are often on the ball as much as hospitals can be in Ontario given all the constraints. I enjoyed my time there. Would return. Good coworkers. Good management.

Great opportunity as an RN

Been here 12 years, challenging but rewarding. A lot of support from residents and docs, other nurses. Would recommend for beginner nursing to gain your skills and then a lot of opportunity to move around

Research not respected

Research staff are not treated well. Bad management and horrible leadership. No communication with staff and research staff have no received any raises in 15-20 years

Engaging team and good leadership

I really loved my team I worked with. Internal politics limited some of my agency as a bedside nurse that led to moral distress. Tough teaching residents but also a lot of fun being in such a vibrant learning environment. I wouldn't suggest working here to a friend but they were decent to me as an employee

Challenging but enjoyable workplave

Working within the LRCP staffing office was a challenging but rewarding an enjoyable job. Reporting to my manager, we had many responsibilities as staffing clerks but were given any support we requested. Would 100% recommend working for LHSC, with annual raises and constant learning opportunities. Great benefits and great way to build relationships and grow your career.


Flexible hours

Great coworkers, inconsistent management/expectations

Your ability to thrive in your role at LHSC is determined by your management team. The twist is that management is constantly changing (not through leaves or by quitting, but by executives “reshuffling” management teams) - I’ve had 8 different managers over 6 years. Some managers have built a strong relationship with their teams, and others have no idea who the people are that they approve vacation requests for. There is no consistency which makes it difficult to be recognized for your hard and meaningful work as an employee. The people I work either daily are amazing and we support each other through the ups and downs, but I have heard that other programs aren’t as lucky in having supportive coworkers. Employee experience is very program and area dependent. I find across all areas that if you are a contract employee, they will forever keep you as a contract employee and renew your contract annually. Best advice is to only accept a role if you are hired as “permanent” right away. Parking is reasonably priced but there are never any parking spots available if you start work at 9am onwards.


Close to home, one hour lunch break option, opportunity to learn a lot about health services


Inconsistent management, inconsistent work spaces, constants office moves, no follow-up with employee feedback/concerns

Great place to work

Great work environment, wonderful people, organized, opportunity for learning and movement. Very much enjoyed my experience in research - worked with a great time and learned a lot

Comparative pay...lack of good management

Always understaffed and vacation time rarely approved. Micromanagement of nurses time. Made to work throughout all of LHSC which included different hospitals, very little notice of switch in location prior to shift.

Staff is great , management not so much

Pay is less than expected for a college graduate. Staff are great and good work environment as long as you don't have to deal with management. Clerks are looked down upon and often the target if patients have complaints or are upset. Mamagnent can be unsupportive and can bullies at times. I stay for the pension and works hrs as other places do offer what I have and works well for me .

Busy, fast paced work place, policies contradict

Exciting place to work as security, however, watch your back as everyone wants to improve the ladder, your buddy one day will step on you the next. Corporate policies conflict with each other and will be the detriment to employees, no life work balance, deal with assaults, and injured or dead and dying people from adults to children with no compassion from Mng. Next call, next call, they say show compassion, empathy, and caring but they do not want that from employess. Politics rule the work place, people who have never done the job dictate how it is supposed to be done without a clue on how to deal with volatile situations. They say think on your feet yet when you do, you're penalized for it. Very toxic work inviroment due to Mng not caring for employees only the bottom dollar and what public perception is.


Experience for law enforcement


Management does not care about doing the right thing

No life no balance

Would never recommend to apply here. Communication is horrible, walking into your shift and no one is willing to help. My first two weeks of training the psw refused to train because they didn’t want to. So a lot of learning and teaching one’s self the job. They pile many duties on you and then get upset when not completed but won’t have time to help or instruct you on what to do. I left this job after 3 months. As in those 3 months I had no life other than work. 12 hr shifts 4 in a row and then call you on days off and basically give you no option but to say yes. Toxic place


Pay is decent


Long hours, toxic work place

Great learning experience but toxic environment

Learning experiences are great. Upper Management is out of touch with the real dynamics of environment. Constantly short staffed with little flexibility. Great relationship with Doctors and most coworkers. Not much opportunity for advancement but a lot of opportunity to help management with their added tasks.

Friendly environment

Most of the staff here are friendly and inviting. They are always supporting you if you have questions or need help. There is always room for growth here.
