Current Employee - Audio Visual Technician in Scarborough, ON (Canada)

I have been working at University of Toronto part-time for more than a year

Pros

It is a Secure job with lots of different opportunities. Full time employees have room to grow in a department, even switch into different departments.
Very vibrant community, and a good working environment. Organization has lots of programs and facilities for employees.

Competitive salaries.

Cons

Internal politics meaning directors run the show despite not always being qualified. There is minimal to no training for student employees. Rather than training students to be better qualified they hire full time employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train student employees and consult staff for cost effective solutions ... rather than paying big bucks to companies that do half the job.

    I have been working at University of Toronto full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility in that I can pursue any type of research I'm interested in and hours are flexible as well.

    Cons

    The work itself is very slow and you spend a lot of time and effort on long projects that don't always work. Compared to others with similar education, we are paid at nearly minimum wage for long, weekend and weeknight hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a learning institution so it's fine.
