Fast paced environment in Mental Health
The environment is very fast paced and can at times be stressful as you are trying to juggle many different facets of your job in an 8 hour work day.

Management varies in their management styles, it all depends on which department you happen to work in.

Good people terrible pay
Staff is good here but it's a revolving door. They can't keep security staff here because the wage is unlivable and with a difficult rotating schedule getting a second job is also quite difficult

Great Place to Work!
I loved working at The Royal. You actually have time to talk to your patients which is essential in psychiatric nursing. Management is okay and fairly supportive. There are lots of educational opportunities and opportunities to work on different units. The work load is busy but realistic. The pay and benefits are fantastic. The culture is fun, a lot of great staff.
Pros
Pay, Benefits, Educational Opportunities, Realistic Workload
Cons
Alternating Shifts

Great mandate
I was happy to work for such a fine organization. Long term health residence was sometimes a sad operation. P2P seemed to work well as facilities were well managed to the extent that budgets permitted
Pros
Lots of evidence of the positive effects on the community
Cons
Poor pay outside of the clinical structure

Caring Allied Health Professionals and Wonderful clients
The hospital has high demands on allied health to carry high case load, see as many clients as possible each day with little time for administration, professional development, and to close files up before client is able to be discharged to community based services (outpatient programs). Management and upper echelons are very disconnected from the realities affecting allied health, management objectives are not congruent with realities of needs of clients. Allied health colleagues are very dedicated to well being of clients.
Pros
Experience working in mental health
Cons
High work loads
