A nice University

Graduate Student (Former Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

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

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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementProbably not relevant here.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
