I worked at University of British Columbia part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great way to earn an extra income as a student, with rock solid pay for a part-time job. Easy access to reference letters, and a good way to network as a bonus. I'd venture to say that this is the best work-study position available at UBC.

Cons

No cons really; my own writing improved as a consequence of working here and getting trained by the centre. Yeah, I really can't think of a single con.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work! The people at the centre are awesome!

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers; good benefits; excellent location; beautiful campus; good career opportunities

    Cons

    Higher management is clueless about what happens administratively in the university; lack of transparency and very poor communications; academics appointed in admin positions are not interested.
