    I worked at University of British Columbia

    Pros

    Had a great manager who was very helpful when I needed it, but very happy to let me work on my own as well. Considering it was an internship the pay was quite good.

    Cons

    part time, no contract, no benefits. at the same time, they don't expect as much. parking is terrible. better to take the bus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stay on course, you're doing pretty well

    I worked at University of British Columbia

    Pros

    Attractive physical environment. Good pension. Nice people.

    Cons

    Extremely incompetent management, heavily political environment, not listened to (at all) unless you have an academic position. Academics are elistist and have a terribly derogatory attitude towards non academic professional staff.

    Lots of backstabbing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some respect for professional staff. Hire professional administrators and allow them to do their job. Stop trying to put academics in administrative roles. Stop going behing the backs of administrators.

    Disapproves of CEO
