    I worked at York University as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful staff, great working environment, good benefits and competitive salary. I got to work from home a lot which provided a good work life balance. I think it really depends what department you are working for and if you are in research the professor you are working under.

    Cons

    Location - feels unsafe and hard to get to

    I have been working at York University as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    It was a very positive experience to work with such talented academics in the field of vision research and psychophysics. Great atmosphere, pay, benefits, management and coworkers.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for promotion or upwards climbing apart from an increase in hours. Not a long-term job but good for part-time work for a student.
