    I have been working at University of Waterloo


    Great faculties, flexible hours, the university is located in a scenic place, people in the administrative sections are very amazing. Generally very positive experience about the non-academic life. Transportation is very good.


    Not much exposure to update ourselves in our fields, not much cultural activities in the city.
