Current Employee - Student Assistant in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
Current Employee - Student Assistant in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I have been working at University of British Columbia full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Autonomy. Ideas and suggestions listened to and taken seriously. Hours flexible. Great deal of personal satisfaction with job being done. Helped my prof with literature searches and assisted a PhD student with construction of his project.

Cons

Some very long days. Had a problem when we started the project and I was there until midnight. Not unwilling to put in the extra time when needed as some days were lighter. Only a summer job. Wish it could be full time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advice. Management was terrific.
