I have been working at University of Waterloo as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Co-op programs, cutting edge research, state of the art facilities, co-operation with other research and teaching centers, top level researchers,

Cons

Bureaucracy, lack of professional managers, insufficient amount of administrative and mechanical staff consequently increasing the length for completion of work around campus

Advice to Management

Be more pro-active and transparent.
