    Pros

    An institution with a good reputation in Canada. Nice campus. The city of Guelph is a good place to live. The people are generally friendly and pleasant to work with. Flexible work hours offered a great work-life balance. Access to courses at the university for personal development was a plus.

    Cons

    Tends to be bureaucratic - which seems to be the case in most higher education institutions. Funding levels have a big impact on allocation of money to departments and programs. Some departmental decisions seem arbitrary and short-sighted. Politics can be quite entrenched in some departments. Not many opportunities for promotion but staff seem to stay because it is comfortable and the benefits are good. Lack of consistent procedures for employee performance evaluation.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better training in management skills to senior managers and department chairs (who are well-versed in their academic fields but often lack sufficient management and leadership skills).

    The Senior Management should focus more on the lower level employees and the compensations should be based on the performances.
