    Pros

    Work environment is a definitely an asset. Meeting people on a daily basis and interacting with many brilliant minds across three campuses. Workshops and seminars are an asset.

    Cons

    University of Toronto is very stingy on all aspects of employment. The reason (from higher up) is because of its ties to St. George campus, who ultimately dictate funding and any expenses per department despite Scarborough operating as a separate institution. Not only staff have been let go, but entire departments also. The campus has tripled in size but the number of staff the same. Tremendous amount of politics, so much politics that it affects the efficiency of staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management thinks it can run before it knows how to walk. Cutting back and operating on a low budget despite the campus' growth just shows corrupt upper level management.
