At 18 years of employment with LHSC, the work environment has been consistent. The employer, is fair, benefits are good and parking is expensive. The staff is helpful and friendly. Facilities are maintained. Union involvement with certain departments.
Pros
Helping people
Cons
Parking costs

Very stressful work environment. Co workers gossip so much its exhausting. Management creates dog eat dog work culture. After union dues and parking come off your pay cheque you wont have much left. 1% raise per year if your lucky.
Pros
Helping patients
Cons
Work Hours, Co workers, Management

Unfortunately, like most companies with 10,000 plus workers, many departments run like separate entities. Very cut-throat at the leadership level. The plus is - those you help every day, always making a difference and helping others is a reward itself. God bless Health Care workers on the front line!

Applying within or outside of your department/hospital will be blocked. You will be forced to work in poor conditions and stuck from leaving as they are strapped for staff and can't afford to lose a body. Yes a body, you are only a body. Bodies keep business moving but that's all you are, a body. Bullying tactics are not only allowed, they are encouraged by management to handle staff (Toyota Method -shaming staff to get results). Poor workers are promoted and excellent workers are stuck in their current positions. Why move what's working? LHSC motto = MORE IS LESS
Pros
It's a job that pays
Cons
Undervalued, Unimportant, Ignored, Bullied, Hounded, Pigeon-holed

I’ve worked here for almost 10 years, it’s was great at first. I actually enjoyed going to work & had a work family. I was proud to say I worked there. Now the only thing that matters is the almighty dollar. The company is management heavy, continually adding more & more layers of supervisors/managers but stripping staff to bare bones. It is no longer about patient care, it’s basically an assembly line & frontline staff are the robots to shuffle people through. Nurses & PSWs are expected to work anywhere they see fit no matter your qualifications. So long as they can say the unit is staffed. Once their “exemplary standing” was met by Accreditation everything went downhill faster than a meteor falling from outer space. Once Accreditation comes around again they’ll be scrambling to meet the standards of care again. RPNs do practically the same job as RNs for way less, the organization is forcing RNs into supervisory roles against their will or they are told to “move on”. It has become a SUPER TOXIC workplace. I highly advise you look elsewhere for employment.
Pros
Most staff genuinely care about the patients
Cons
It’s not a hospital, it’s a company looking to make money.

Overall, it’s a great switchboard position IF!!!! You can achieve Full Time!!! It takes a long time to climb that ladder. They like to hire “casual/part time (which you don’t get benefits and are always on call! So you can’t exactly leave town on your days off! It has its usual “office politics” too. A good blend of senior operators and younger. Friendly atmosphere for the most part.
Pros
Great reputable employer and pay
Cons
Mostly hire casual/ part time on call basis!

Poor management and most higher ups are very arrogant. Really depends on your direct supervisor and team members, but be expected to have poor work-life balance and no chance of raise or benefits if hired on contract.
Pros
Help others
Cons
Long hours, no benefits

My experience for co-op at the hospital is one i will never forget. It taught me many of my social skills that I have now, such as talking to people I don't know, going into environments that are unfamiliar to me. Everyone I met was very welcoming and made me feel at home

A great place to work. I learned a ton and would recommend this hospital to a new graduate. A great team, and lots of room for advancement in careers.

Patient centered care takes a back seat to money and an attitude of always trying to do more with less. Not enough people speak up to the lhin to say what they are doing is wrong so people wait too long and suffer at this hospital that is underresourced. They will not hesitate to throw a nurse under the bus for the greater good which is maintaining an administration to front line worker ratio that is obscene.

12 hour days, long and hard. Management was mostly absent, not really there for you, sink or swim kind of attitude, working as a team with your co-workers was a must. Dealing with the very ill and dying was the most difficult but empathy for the patients was definitely needed. The learning was the best part of the job and the patients as well. I worked in a lot of units and they were always willing to teach you anything you wanted to know.

a typical day at work is fast paced and demanding. if you do not support your back, you will eventually end up injured as a result of lifting heavy patients. rule number one, get someone to help you lift said heavy patients. management was great, the hardest part of the job was watching patients suffer. the best part of the job was working with the team to better the outcomes of the patients. good place to work, especially as a new nurse.

The benefits, and pension are excellent, as mentioned in the header. However, over the years that I have worked for this organization, management has degraded to the point of being inept and painfully incompetent in even the most simple and mundane of tasks. Minor breaches of the organization's codes result in overly harsh and unrealistic punishments. Meanwhile, the larger issues (patient overcrowding, mental health treatment, hallway medicine) are largely overlooked and even ignored,

I really enjoyed working with the Telecom team. I was treated like part of a family. I got to work on a lot of different projects, which was great experience.

Enjoying my time working at LHSC. Can be stressful do the fast pace and lack of resources at time. Co workers are amazing and it makes for long shifts to go by quickly
