    Current Employee - Assistant Professor in Guelph, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at University of Guelph full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Personal development, salary, work environment, mgt is genuine, students are better than most other programs in the area, food on campus is amazing, education is normally the focus (even of mgt, unless risk aversion is included in a decision)

    Cons

    Location (Guelph is too far from Toronto, small town environment lacks culture), Union environment creates negativity where there doesn't need to be any, the rules from mgt often lack a learning focus, risk aversion is over the top - I am all for it, but not to this level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on education. We are beginning to falter and take a risk averse, anti-learning approach to decision-making. Let's keep the students as our focus and make decisions based on students' best interests.
