    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at University of Ottawa full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This place offers easy / flexible hours. It has excellent support system. As a researcher you have the flexibility to do your own things and you are encouraged for it
    -

    Cons

    Unfortunately, sometimes due to lack of self-motivation you can easily get behind in your projects / work as the management is not keeping weekly tabs on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stay close to the researchers - give them free reign but also have at least weekly meetings if not daily ones
