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

    Pros

    Great community, supportive environment and mentorship, lots of interesting projects and challenges. Provided with a great deal of responsibility, even at an internship level

    Cons

    It really depends on your department and colleagues. My department was excellent, but other departments may not have such a youthful and supportive work environment. Pay is lower, but this is to be expected at a public institution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep supporting student workers and have faith in their abilities.
