No business acumen, no vision, no respect for the employees working in the procurement department
No business acumen, no vision, no respect for the employees working in the procurement department. Employees working in the procurement department have no mark on anything they do, but they robotically execute the direction drawn by the department's management. No appreciation for the hard work, dedication or extra mile offered by the procurement specialists. The leadership of this department should be reshuffled as it's been forgotten in "position" from a long time and became obsolete, toxic, visionless and focused on the development of cliques and not teams.
From the procurement perspective, as long the actual procurement leadership in maintained, the ones who will suffer the most will be the hospital's patients. If the Sisters of St. Joseph (who founded the hospital) in 19th century could come to life, they would twist in their graves to see the dilettantes that run the procurement department and their leadership which has nothing to do with the hospital's vision and mission.
Pros
Good location
Cons
Rigid, no vision, clique oriented procurement management, slow pace environment, no mark on your work

Great Teaching Hospital
SMH helped me learn and grow through my professional development. Working on a TEAM makes a difference to understand in an organization that serves and teaches, has a breadth and alignment to why they are ranked high in World Medicine.

A great place to work for.
I worked for a very short contract position. I found my colleagues to be very fair and supportive. I would have loved to volunteer as a peer support specialist but it is very difficult to get such a position.
Pros
Great salary
Cons
Very short contract

Hospital life
St. Mike's is a great hospital to work for. They provide quality patient care and do great research. They also provide competitive benefits and salaries to employees. The problem I have is with strict policies and management that has made it very difficult for me to balance my work and life, particularly with the long commute that I can not avoid, as that area of Toronto is a very unsavoury place to live.
Cons
commute

Very dynamic environment, great for learning opportunities. The opposite side of the medal - constant rush and little time spend planning and coordinating across various teams.
Constant rush and pressure create toxic environment.
Pros
Leaqrning opportunities for those who is advancing

Rush, pressure, toxic environment

This was a positive workplace over many years.
This was a very satisfactory working environment for me, right up until my early retirement in June of 2018.
The staff were long term employees and mutually supportive.

Management was also calm, caring and supportive of myself

and other workers.
Pros
Supportive work environment.
Cons
Emotionally demanding over many years of employment.

Very engaging
Very productive and fun. I learnt knew patient booking skills given the fact that each organization uses a different system. All management and staff are very friendly and helpful which makes the job much easier. Everyone at work is very respectful of other staff as well as clients the work ethic of St. Michael's to make sure that patients are satisfied with the services they receive. The hardest job is when doctors are running behind and you have to deal with angry patients. All in all, there is a fun part when the supervisor brings free coffee.
