Overall great experience compared to other health authorities. Primary care culture makes it hard to have good work-life balance. Managers in my area were very supportive and helpful

Very good place to work

It's a busy place and I enjoy working there. It can be trying but that is part of life's experiences especially in a hospital and working in the float pool where I go everywhere, I see a lot of different situations. It has been good for the most part

Both good and bad

Worked with some fantastic people. Great place to work when you have the right leadership. Satisfying to know you are making a difference to patients. Not a great work environment if leadership not supportive or not in touch with what is happening in day-to-day service delivery. It is very hard to see staff who feel unsupported or uncertain about future.


Some people fantastic to work with. Good benefits package.


Work environment is not always good.

Good place to work, great colleagues, never boring

The health care industry is always changing and growing and at times can be challenging. My co-workers are great, and caring about the people that they look after. Like any large organization there are pros and cons.

Excellent teamwork and family oriented workplace

Busy and sometimes exhausting but rewarding in the end. Had an opportunity to work with a different mix of people from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Such a diverse range of patients with a rich vibrant culture which helped me not only to grow professionally, but also as a human being.
