Enhance my growth as an individual, physically socially and mentally .
Lab Technician 3 (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 January 2019
UHN is a good training ground for beginners especially in the medical laboratory field. There’s plenty of experience in various section of the laboratory that one can grow fully because of the massive training and extensive knowledge being imparted to every employee. In venipuncture alone, numerous patients at Princess Margaret Hospital would provide you an excellent phlebotomy skill for non stop bleeding and EKG procedures. Bottom line, all these experiences I have encountered working as a phlebotomist at UHN continued my growth and development as an individual in all aspects of life.
Coop Software Developer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 January 2019
I enjoyed learning all the new technologies and workflows I had to use which will certainly be very useful in the coming years. While work was a bit slow sometimes, it was still nice to spend time with my coworkers and being at the centre of downtown Toronto didn't hurt.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 December 2018
As it is such a big organization, your job and workplace culture is very dependent on the team you are on and your manager/leadership. Some roles will provide you with the opportunity to interact with other teams/departments, while others are more insular. For the most part, it is possible to move around to new roles (I was on the corporate side, but moved between teams) when you would like a change/new challenge.
Salaries are on the low end.
Large organization, possible to move between teams to increase your learning + find the right fit
Internal promotion can be difficult and is very dependent on your manager/leadership
Age frendly ,manny worth wide cources offered to take
Administrative Assistant MSICU, TGH, PMH (Former Employee) – 200 Elizabeth Street – 9 October 2018

Fast fast heavy work load with a business type environment.
Gifts Administration Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 October 2018
A typical day to day routine would be to run reports for online donations as well as process donations from donors and issue receipts. My knowledge of how a hospital foundation supports the medical innovations that hospitals achieve grew immensely. the office was a very fast paced and there were constant deadlines needing to be met which was difficult to achieve sometimes due to donation volume and under staffing. Most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction of meeting the hospitals fundraising goal to allow the doctors in the hospital to take on new projects and innovating health care for patients.
Bonuses, free lunches and coffee.
Could not take vacation time between November and February.

Executive Assistant to the EVP & CBO (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 August 2018
I really enjoyed my time at UHN. I had left my previous employer for a better opportunity and thought that UHN was the perfect fit for me. Unfortunately that time was short lived as I was laid off due to restructuring. It was a great opportunity to gain more responsibility and learn more about the healthcare/hospital system. Enjoyed working in the corporate office, everyone was helpful and kind.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 August 2018
It was an OK place to work. The salary and benefits were good, however management is the overall reason I left my position with UHN. Unfortunately managers lack education and real life experience (within the security department). They have not worked outside of the health care environment, and do not have any form of higher education, while many of their subordinates have university degrees, etc.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 July 2018
I work casual and I like my schedule. Nice colleagues. The unit is not that heavy and I like to work for this company. The only reason I may leave is the commuit issue. Otherwise, I would never leave this company.
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 July 2018
Working as a nurse there is a lot of paperwork and mediating between different members of the care team and patients. I expect UHN is no different in that it feels as though the nurses take a lot of the work with little say in the company. All of this having been said I had the opportunity to work with the most amazing men and women I have had the pleasure of meeting. they are always kind and helpful as can be, even when the work gets hard.
TECHNICAL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 June 2018
4 major hospitals in one, UHN is top notch in the country! It's a place one would like to work in for the lifetime of one's career. It offers great benefits for its employees but it also tends to be lacking in some of their needs; compassion, for example.
great benefits, good people to work with
wasteful with resources, cuts down good programs due to bad management
