    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 Management

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


  2. Great co-op experience!

    Pros

    Supportive managers, fun environment, job autonomy, a comprehensive review session accommodating for sick days/doctors appointments, etc.

    Cons

    Paycheck every four weeks (instead of the normal two weeks)

    Advice to Management

    Continue supporting your very own students!
