    Pros

    Very equipped university. The SGW campus is placed in downtown and this make it very reachable from all over Montreal.

    Cons

    I have been TA for the past couple of years and I got to say the pay rate is WAY too low. Last year TAs made a demonstration about this and still its very low.

    Advice to Management

    When its tuition time, you guys are so aggressive and greedy. But when it comes to TA payments!!!!!! I am really pissed of by the way that Concordia University treats it's TAs and RAs.

    Pros

    a great place to study, help in career advancement, new technology and best professors in the industry. it is highly recommended.

    Cons

    the place is bit crowded, lot of students. It should take care of more job fairs for students, help to give freshers some kind of experience.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to advice the management for trying to get more companies in the job fairs.
