Secure job with good benefits

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good company. Nice benefit. Worked long hours because of shortage in staffing. Training wasn’t organized . They need more support for new employees. Overall it’s a good place to work.

Toxic workplace

There is a great divide between management and workers. We, as workers, feel like we are merely numbers. The wages seem fair at the start, but then your pay reflects the massive deductions for co-payment of pension and benefits to the tune of well over 1\3 of your pay. After 16 years I am currently looking for work elsewhere. Moral here is terrible.

Pros

Steady employment

Cons

Demoralizing atmosphere

Great opportunities to try different jobs

There are tons of postings all the time so lots of opportunity to move around, if you don't like your current position. Co-workers are educated and helpful!

A career to grow with

Lots of opportunities here to learn and grow in your career. Every day is a new learning curve. The doctors, including residents make it easy to approach and inquire. I love having the Nurse Practitioner's on our team.

Fail-Up Institution.

Hands down the worst job I’ve ever had. “Leadership” is a joke and People Services has no idea what’s going on. The less competent you are, the higher you’ll go. Docked for lunch breaks, and not paid for overtime.

Pros

None.

Cons

Too many to list.

Stress with no pay

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

Stringent and competitive place to work

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

Great pay and benefits........BUT

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!

Enter at your own risk

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

LHSC no longer cares about the patients!

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.

Great place for switchboard employment

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

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

very educating

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.

underfunded and unsafe at times

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.

A good learning experience

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.

great environment to learn

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.
