    I have been working at University of Calgary full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are great and the work I'm doing is very meaningful. There is a high commitment to respect in the workplace and new training and learning opportunities are becoming available. Engagement of staff seems to be a strong priority going forward.

    Cons

    Compensation levels are certainly lower than corporate Calgary. Great defined benefit pension, which is almost unheard of in corporate environments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changes are good . . keep it up!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at University of Calgary in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an informal "discussion" with a senior member of management to see if the role was a potential match and then had a formal interview with several members of the department. The interview questions were a bit "canned" and there wasn't a lot of opportunity for me to ask questions. A bit too structured for my likes.
