    Employment at Algonquin

    Director (Former Employee)
    Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    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.

    Great instructors with poor quality administration

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI was in Computer field. Found three great professors and one wonderful advisor (counselling service) They have an excellent "Applied Research and Innovation" laboratory. Supervisor, professor Ed Strange is one of the best professors I have ever met.

    ConsAdministration is not helpful at all. Very poor service. Buildings are clean and nice. Cafeteria is ridiculously expensive. On the way to college buy your lunch from nearest supermarket.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI worked for Applied Research and Innovation laboratory. No advice. I want to thank Professor Ed Strange for encouraging and guiding all the students like a father.

    Algonquin College

    Professor (Current Employee)
    Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    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.
