Poor salary, good work place

The workplace is good. It is located in the core downtown. So, if you wanna stay close to it, it will cost you a lot. As you will have a poor salary, it would be tough to survive in Toronto.

Never again

Nice people who care and work there. salary not lucrative as a nurse. Bad energy on the wards/constantly overworked. No seniority, not a HOOP pension, cant contribute until you're 30 and pension is not good.




No atmosphere.

Best place to work in the world but sometimes sad to see sick kids

the most inspirational place on earth. I would give my right arm to work there again. As an institution Sick Kids has everything going for it. Don't work there if you want a picnic type of job. Go there if you want to go beyond the call of duty and give attention to detail and go to bat for every last child in that hospital who depends on your walk. They depend on the work you put each and every day. I realized that from day. I loved that place. The reason I don't work there anymore is because I couldn't sustain the hours to keep their equipment at my home. I was only working part time and they wanted full time. It is a magical place with a lot of very dedicated scientists, PhDs, and world renowned physicians. There is no place like it on earth.


It comes with a very good benefits package.

Great place to work

SickkKids is a place like no other. It was a great place to work. Always challenging, but very rewarding. Continuing education opportunities are plentiful. There is always a sense of "team" when you are working here.

Meaningful Cause & Respectful Workplace

There is a strong sense of community and pride that is unique to SickKids as a workplace. There are rarely any encounters, whether with staff, patients or parents, that are anything but pleasant. The pay is on the lower end compared to external institutions, especially as it appears common for staff to take work home and/or exceed job expectations. Otherwise, benefits are very fair and the institution has exemplified superb management through the COVID crisis.

A professional environment that fosters growth and learning

As a summer student assistant in an immunology laboratory, I was exposed to a range of techniques and equipment used in scientific research. I gained invaluable experience genotyping mice DNA samples and shadowing lab members through their experimental procedures.

I have nothing to say

I have nothing to say about this opportunity. My time here was short. Team members were supportive and helpful. A typical day is predictable and slow paced

Sickkids is a productive and fun place to work

Sickkids Hospital is a great place to work, the people there are quite friendly and considerate. I would usually start my day by jotting down a list of the things I needed to get done each day and completed them in order of importance, for example, I would first clean up the work queues with the aged claims that had deficiencies, editing and resubmitting them first. I learned Anesthesia billing, Critical Care billing and Epic Applications software - Hyperspace. Management is very strict in making sure employees respect one another and follow the rules of the company. They try very hard to create a safe, secure and stress free environment. The culture of Sickkids is: Excellence, Compassion, Integrity, Collaboration and Innovation. The hardest part of the job is completing the monthly metrics/reconciliation report on a strict deadline each month. The most enjoyable part of the job was setting goals and meeting them. I liked being part of a great organization that provides the best care for children and support for their families.

Good workplace

SickKids Research Institute is a fast-paced environment and expectation for experimental results/findings is timely scheduled. The workplace culture and environment is very different per lab.
