    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I have been working at McGill University as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Challenging environment located in the beautiful city of Montreal. People are all nice and funding for engineering is not lacking. Supervisor is very supportive and helpful and I've learned a lot working here. There are lots of things to do to challenge yourself.

    Cons

    Lots of administrative red tape and campus culture is pretty divided - politically speaking. A lot of extreme left wing radicals and right wing radicals. Also a unionised city which has caused problems i.e. strike.

    Current Employee - Graduate Student in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I have been working at McGill University part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Talented people (but not always)
    The campus is so close to everything, downtown, mountain, restaurants, but very quiet and beautiful
    Most staffs are very friendly

    Cons

    McGill is not as rich as other universities
    McGill is kind of falling behind univerisities such as U of T in research
    More rigid language policies in Quebec might affect McGill as an open and international university
