Employment at Algonquin

Director (Former Employee)
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I worked at Algonquin College full-time for more than 10 years

ProsDynamic & collaborative environment, good self improvement opportunities, supportive of employees

Consconvergence of academic and administrative priorities can create difficulties

Advice to Senior ManagementStrong people skills are required to attain consensus for action. As a large, bureaucratic environment initiatives require support from many factions. The College is continually looking for improvements to services and programming and is very dynamic in this regard. It is an environment that encourages continued self-improvement and offers opportunities to do so.

Algonquin College

Professor (Current Employee)
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Algonquin College

ProsOutstanding environment that encourages innovation in and outside the classroom. Excellent faculty dedicated to their jobs. Everyone is focused on helping the students.

ConsBudget restraints impede on progress in the classroom experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementA tough job trying to balance the concerns of students, government and unionized faculty. The optics of management salaries increases that exceed the union sends the wrong message.
