I have been working at University of Alberta full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

There are a lot of new buildings now at the University of Alberta these days, especially medicine and science-wise. I am actually surprised to see this kind of investment in the bricks and mortar. The institution wasn't exactly known for being in modernity (and not just structurally) and always felt like a few beautiful original buildings mixed with the advances in bureaucratic architecture of the 70s and 80s.

Cons

Union control. A good school that punches above its weight and looks better than it ever has.

    Pros

    Easy access to the executive, Work with lots of smart and articulate people.

    Cons

    Old school higher education institute, doesn't promote enough from within and too decentralized to allow for specialized positions with better career trajectories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote high performing insiders.

    I have been working at University of Alberta part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great resources, great faculties and great place. You could enjoy all the lectures, talks from visiting researchers. People here are nice to cooperate with.

    Cons

    The location of Edmonton determins this cons... It is cold here in this city, and the winter could last for half the year. Anyways, it's only the weather, nothing about the academic side here.
