I have been working at Carleton University

Pros

manager gets resources needed, then stays out of the way so that professionals can get the job done right. No micromanaging!

Cons

not in the top league as far as research universities go, so not much depth in terms of on-site collaboration, but so what- research is now global via the Internet, so this is no longer much of a hindrance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work, know when to step in to get resources for your people, and when to step out so they can get the job done.

    I have been working at Carleton University

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Strong sense of community and pride in staff for working here. Dedication to service students is improving. Strong performers can perform. New leadership is working out well.

    Cons

    Slow decision making... typical red tape... it is a public sector company / mentality after all. Like other university environments, tensions between staff and faculty members. More respect needed from faculty to staff / corporate. Some imbalances between merit and pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LEAP - Listen, empathize, agree and partner! Listen to feedback and have more of a private sector mentality.

    I have been working at Carleton University

    Pros

    You get to travel, meet wonderful students and parents. Pays very well & great benifits.
    Alot of flexiblity you may work from home on some days.

    Cons

    long days, If you have a family it may be difficult to travel. Alot of politics in the work place when it comes to moving up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to be less harsh on employees, we get tired, we sometimes need a break.

    Promote people because they are talented, not because of politics
