Well organized and focused

Indeed featured review

We were given clear tasks for specific times and it was easy to follow. There were contingencies for busy days, and they worked well. Management cared about succeeding.

Bad Management

Bad Management. Favouritism. Management does not give chance to most people who want different positions in different departments. Racism , and Favouritism is present at work place.


Break time


Long Hours. Stressful.

Do not do internship here

STAY AWAY. Have no respect for interns and how we need to graduate. There are companies that will treat you way better. Worst company I have ever worked for. - no communication- no details- not caring - Rude

Great place with world-class faculty and facilities

This is a very inspiring place to be. Several top hospitals beaming with expertise in every field imaginable. Great opportunities for collaborations and cutting-edge science.

Good work life balance,good benefits and pension

I have worked at uhn for more than 10 years, great company and lots of career opportunities, also come with good packages of dental and health, Hoopp pension is a plus. Nowadays there were a few restructures, but as long as we are good with your job, you are safe.

Staff are fed up of being taken advantage of.

I have worked at the Toronto Western Hospital for years and it just keeps getting worse and worse. Full time positions are being cut and the work is being passed on to others (the ones who actually work). When people are sick or on a leave of absense they dont not replace them. We have not recieved a wage increase in over 5 years. Stay away from UHN if you are looking to work in a hospital setting.

They do not have effective HR so the managers have the power to behave like Mr.Putin. If you get a good manager you can work otherwise good luck. They have overstaffed managers and under staff frontline workes.


Job security


Over staffing of managers and politics

Great place to work

Great hospital to work. Staff parking rates are ridiculous but not controlled by the hospital. Management tries but like all other hospitals in Ontario we are bleeding staff and finding it hard to replace.


Free swag like sweaters


Long hours, night shifts

Fun and challenging workplace

I learned a lot by working at UHN. The team members were from all different backgrounds and disciplines so collaborating was fun and engaging because there was always the opportunity to learn from each other. Expect to be challenged and be ready to learn on the job.


Remote work, flexible schedule


Onboarding HR process is lengthy

Great place to work

Depending on which physician you support; I supported 2 physicians who were great. They left so I left with one to help him start community practice.

Toxic working environment

Toxic work cultureCondescending and rude managementYou won't move up the ladder unless you have no pride or shame. It is okay for upper managementbeing disrespectful. No appreciation of the staff!

UHN is a world renowned healthcare centre so that's something to be proud of.

It is not easy to work at UHN but it can be rewarding. There is a lot going on so sometimes it can be hard to prioritize and focus. All in all, the total compensation package is good, especially the pension plan.

Run away!!!

Seriously this place is terrible. It would be so hard to sum up all of the bad things about UHN. Easily the worst HR I have ever dealt with. Incompetent scientists, over funded researchers, poor facilities. Management are awful. It was out of the movie office space. I had four bosses who I had to get approval of for everything. Short term contracts and low pay were the icing on the cake. Go elsewhere. You can do better.


Close to Kenzington market


Surrounded by stupidity

Poor workplace culture and poor pay

Nurses unfortunately are not compensated enough for the amount of work we do. Constant flow of admitting patients even though not staffed. Workplace culture has gone down, alot of bullying and horizontal violence among nurses, especially towards new nurses. Used to be a much healthier environment to work in. Hopefully will change soon.

I enjoyed my job with Staff and Management...will love to work under their supervision again.. tks to all for making my job a healthy place to work.

I enjoyed working with UHN.. Would like that opportunity again. We worked like a Team and Management were always pleased and complimented our working skills with the Public as I worked with the Mobile Vaccine Team during COVID 19.

Stressful understaffed

Stressful understaffed nrsg and allied health especially due to the pandemic and there is government funding needed to support nursing staff in particular

Teamwork with CARE values

Based on my work experiences with other hospitals, UHN is the best and a very supportive place to work with. Very good benefits; likewise, work balance is great.

Decent nursing job

Decent work culture, not too much drama, although each unit is different. Some attempts made across the organization to retain staff. Flexible staffing available if you want to pursue grad school/continuing education.

Staffing issues

Good company, room for growth. A lot of company politics involved. Takes a while to get accustomed to the staff but there is always a couple people willing to help. Like any other hospital right now, they often working short. Managers are helpful when it comes to job mobility.


Salary is standard


Long hours, work weekends, manager is nowhere to be found
