Pros

Great academic environment
A lot of projects in which to be involved
Travel opportunities, generous funding for conferences, etc.

Cons

None, really -- downside to working in Quebec is that income taxes are substantial. Not sufficient for a one-income family. This is NOT the employer's fault, though.

Advice to Management

Nothing in particular

    Pros

    Great environment and very good resources (libraries, online services, career and health services). There are many interesting and knowledgeable people who are generally pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    There is some buerocracy and usually work that requires administration takes a long time. Some buildings are on hills so you have to walk uphill every day. In some buildings there is not much choice of food for lunch.

  2. a good place to work if you are happy with the status quo.
