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 Management

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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    I am a graduate student, being research assistant in the summer. I think UofA paid the RA better than other universities in Canada. Also you got paid while pursuing your degree.

    Cons

    This job is not paid by hour. Considering the time you put into thinking and designing your experiments, you are poor.

    Pros

    Excellent research facility in the university. Lot of stress on producing publishable work even at undergraduate level.
    - Travel grants for attending conference

    Cons

    They deduct fees from the stipend paid to the students even in summer months which is really unfair as there are no classes in the summer.

    Advice to Management

    Fees structure makes it quite unattractive compared to the US where fees is waived off for graduate students. The net amount left makes it very difficult to make the ends meet.
