I worked at University of Calgary full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The research environment was good. The benefits we fine. The access to facilities and sports was great. Overall a good university to work for.

Cons

The weather isn't great. It gets really cold in the winter. Other than that, not too bad. Calgary itself is full of people driving hammers and flaunting their money. This may be a con, depending on what you're into.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Probably not relevant here.
