Researcher (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 February 2019
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.

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.

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.

Great company for learning new skills, adjusting to various management styles and trying different roles.

All of the above will allow to progress to new career roles as long as there was demonstrated desire to contribute and a proven ability to learn new skills.

I worked for 3 years as a Research Assistant and Coordinator at St. Mike's. I only left because the funding for my lab had dried up, and I needed to complete a post-graduate degree. I loved working here. Management was kind and effective. I had very similar values to those I worked alongside and our work always felt important.
