Job is what you make of it. Avoid the politics and do your job you'll be just fine. Great job security and benefits for most positions. Especially now with work from home I'd imagine most of the admin work would be great. You work in Health Care so Job Security is top notch.
Pros
Job Security and benefits
Cons
Depending on department could be weird hours, If you don't get a long with your immediate supervisor good luck

Poor management style. Senior director not interested to do the right thing if there is an issue. Directors and managers are too busy to try to actually know who is really contributing and can cultivate their skills and help them grow. Only interested if you’re supporting the faculty of pharmacy on top of all your clinical work. Clinical leads do not provide a supportive environment of learning, ready to point out flaws. The managers of different sites are related so how would staff feel if they have a concern.
Pros
The prestige of working at UHN
Cons
Poor work culture

The work itself is fine, typical renovation projects in the operational hospital environment which can be stressful from time to time. However, managers in the department are not supportive. Constant discriminating, harassing and bullying atmosphere. Even if everything is fine with the projects, managers are criticizing staff all the time. No wonder there is extremely high staff turnover.
Pros

Cons
Toxic work environment, salary

An interesting mix of brillant people and entitled people that will have you feeling inspired until your soul is crushed. Projects that should take a week take months. Also big on meetings, meetings and more meetings

If you are applying for a Houskeeping position be prepared to deal with disrespect, no consideration and rude attitude from Litsa the Receptionist and the manager. You are selling your soul to the devil.

Cons

While the pay definitely could have been more, working as a student during your undergraduate/masters studies is an amazing opportunity that you should cherish. You will get connections with many healthcare professionals, advance your knowledge on the field of whichever department you're in, and learn great skills that can transfer to future careers. As well when a student it is great to have the flexibility to make your own schedule.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
Pay

Excellent place to work if you want to learn and grow. Very fast-paced multi-tasking and highly competitive, Salary raises do not follow the increase in duties and responsibilities. Benefits are very good Management does not promote or stimulate advancement. They don't promote you so they don't have to increase your pay.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
salary increases and promotions very difficult to achieve

UHN provides ample opportunity to slide between departments to develop skillset. Most management is agreeable, but some can be unreasonable. Regardless, highly recommend UHN.

Pay is decent, but only if you aim high during initial negotiations. After that, you're stuck with a paltry annual increase. Benefits and pension are great. Advancement within your own team/department is rare. The only way to move up is out - either out of your team/department or to another organization. The pace can only be described as glacial. What should take a few days is stretched to weeks. And anything that should take weeks will be measured in months. Management has the emotional intelligence of roadkill. You will be view as a tool rather than a human being, and consequently, will be treated like one. Most will gladly throw their subordinates under a bus to protect their own skin. Expect to continue working after 5PM, well into the evening. HR will do everything to defend the organization. Anything you need/ask of them will be treated like a massive inconvenience. As per above, simple forms and tasks will take weeks to complete. I recommend coming to UHN for a few years of experience, but staying past a few years is a waste of your time. Plenty of better hospitals in the area to work at. PS - You can count the number of social events with one hand, even after losing a few fingers in a tragic accident.

In terms of health care University Health Network is one of the leaders for patient care and embracing innovation in the health care sector. As a previous employee in UHN's security operations, also as a female, I would suggest the managerial staff in the security department be required to maintain a stronger educational focus on keeping up to date with social appropriateness, gender equality, racial inclusivity and that a higher standard be held regarding acceptable candidates for managerial positions. All UHN members of Security Operations management are male and are also educationally surpassed by many of their subordinates. My experience working within the security department for 5 years exposed a large disconnect between the mangers racist, sexist and authoritarian like behaviour and the standard of excellence UHN maintains regarding healthy work environments. This is unacceptable for such a progressive organization in the health care sector located in one of the most multicultural cities in the world. I am not proud to have worked in this environment, it forced me to compromise my value systems, my integrity and my own standards for self-respect. These are not small compromises to expect employees to make in order to do their jobs in the 21st century.

Great to work if you've settled down. Not so great if you're looking for faster advancement. Very dated infrastructure...like you literally hear dial up sounds when you're in office. Easy to make mistakes due to dated infrastructure. If you have never worked in a hospital...beware! Lots to learn and easy to mess up. Certain managers tend to have robotic personalities and need to learn better people skills, especially when dealing with people with different personalities.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Career advancement (it would take you years to advance), robotic management

If you're looking for an institution to complete graduate studies at look no further than joining a department that has partnered with UHN. The depth of research being completed here is world class. Graduate studies with a researcher based out of UHN will change you!

Supervised staff in collaboration with hospital and medical leaders to complete the scheduled operations as described on the surgical list. Management was supportive but the staff were uncooperative and fragmented.

Good work / life balance. Public sector always under tight budget. Salary is not compensating. Management is ok. However job is stable. Downtown core may not be ideal suburban commuters.
