    I have been working at University of Toronto full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work is interesting, always changing, constantly learning new techniques. Every Principle Investigator is different, some are horrible but I have a great boss.
    U of T has OK benefits, good pension, good vacation time.

    Cons

    The grant paid system means this job is insecure. You are basically a contract employee with benefits. There is no opportunity for promotion. You'd make more money for less aducation as a admin assistant, have more career paths and job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What does it say about an institution that doesn't value the degrees it grants?

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
