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

Pros

This university has the resources to allow you to train for just about any career. The computer science department and math departments in particular are distinguished in North America. The Molecular Genetics department is also very strong, with ties to many of the hospitals in the UHN.

Cons

I wish the Computer Science department made more of an effort to engage with the burgeoning startup community in Toronto. There are a lot of strong students here, I'm surprised that the department has not taken the initiative to forge links with local companies for internships.

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

    I have been working at University of Toronto as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Hands on exposure to R&D
    - Surrounded by dedicated Master's and PhD candidates who are very bright and dedicated
    - Possibility to write research papers for technical/science journals
    - Not a lot of stress

    Cons

    - Low pay
    - Can get caught up doing menial jobs sometimes
    - The overall experience strongly influenced by the Professor heading the research lab (Choose the Professor wisely)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Not all undergraduate research assistants are cheap labor, some of them have great ideas (again, this varies from Prof. to Prof. Some value undergrads a lot, some are opposite)
