    I have been working at Carleton University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The faculty members in the Dept. that I've interacted with have been nice, helpful and good researchers. Good benefits package. Very helpful HR/payroll staff. The work life balance is good as well and there is flexibility with taking time off or working from out of town for short periods.

    Cons

    The funds for speakers from out of town are a little lower than ideal so there aren't as many colloquia as one would like.

    I worked at Carleton University as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The utter respect that each person shows one another - from the front line cashier, to students, to employees to the Professors!

    Cons

    Unfortunately the group I worked with didn't have any further funding to continue to employ me. Each division is a like a mini company so it all depends on the amount of sales each dept. can create as each dept. funds its own employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great atmosphere!

    Pros

    Carleton University offer one of the best student to professor relation I have ever heard of.

    Cons

    Could be considered as fairly small in comparison to sister school U of O. It is however very easy to get around the campus as a result of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good job.
