Great work environment

Absolutely fabulous place to work. Even though I was on a temporary contract I was fully supported in my role by management. Great opportunities for learning and advancement.I would highly reccomend them as an employer.


Experienced dedicated managers


It was only a temporary contract

Terrible Leadership and Management! Top down culture.

Wow! I truly have no words after completing a contract at the Corporate office. I’m an RN sing the folks up top are wildly out of touch with the realities of the front line. The organization values quantity over quality of work and you feel like you are spinning in a hamster wheel of meetings and working groups and committees without actually having space to reflect, research, talk to experts etc. It’s bureaucracy and risk management at its true finest and I felt totally unsupported. I


Fine pay, great clinicians, some great admin and management


No work boundaries respected, Top down leadership and micromanaging, unsupportive of mental health

Healthcare culture as a whole needs to change

So this is not a VCH specific critique, but considering the lip service they do towards fostering culture, there should be more support for managers for how to support this at the team level. I have worked on teams where this was done incredibly well because the directors and managers took it upon themselves and on teams where the opposite is also true. It’s time for the change to come from within to keep people wanting to participate in healthcare jobs!
