I have been working at University of Alberta

Pros

good salary, great health care coverage, excellent retirement pension plan, flexible work hours

Cons

promotion seems to linked to seniority rather than ability (in some positions), parking is expensive and no reimbursement, office can be bland and boring, no staff lunch rooms or free coffee

Advice to ManagementAdvice

should improve office physical environment for non-academic staff, reserve a room in each building for staff to warm their lunches and sit down to eat.

    I have been working at University of Alberta

    Pros

    Nice research atmosphere for graduate students. I benefit a lot from my supervisor and colleagues. Highly recommend engineering students to pursue a master or PhD degree here.

    Cons

    Parking fee is a little bit high for undergrads and grads. More food courts are suggested because the current food court is too crowded during lunch time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for students to contact industrial people. This is can help broaden their horizon and have a better understanding of theoretical knowledge.
