    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CDHB part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can bond with colleagues over how badly the department is run. I enjoyed the work itself but the politics and poor management were unforgivable.

    Cons

    Unfair wages, understaffed/poor rostering, unable to trust management. Felt discriminated against because of the union I belonged to.
