I have been working at University of Waterloo for more than a year

Pros

- Researchers at Waterloo are well-connected to the industries
- There are many interesting interdisciplinary research going on under different umbrella-like institutes
- Most of the people I meet and work with are actually interested by their work, some of them are super smart too!

Cons

- The physical environment is somewhat austere
- The town of Waterloo is not that interesting, if you are the sort of person who likes to do people-watching on the street

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please try to make the physical space as stimulating as the intellectual one

    I have been working at University of Waterloo part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Only have to work for one month per term, on campus, employee discount for some stores on campus

    Cons

    Annoying customers (students), angry supervisor, low pay, advancement is not always based on merit, scheduled based on school schedule rather than preference, arbitrary dress code
