    Current Employee - Education Marketing in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I have been working at Concordia University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meaningful work, very good starting pay, strong benefits, job security.

    The university employs over 7,500 staff and faculty members, and uses a very decentralized management structure for most operations. This can be excellent in terms of employee agency and autonomy, but it can also be the worst, depending on your direct manager.

    Cons

    Often poor middle management, confused strategies, entrenched information silos, disengaged employees, lack of innovation, no real consequences for failure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embody the ethos of education and seek to develop as leaders; put what is taught in the classroom into practice in operational administrative situations.
