    I worked at York University

    Pros

    The work was flexible in that I could do it when I wanted. It was intellectually stimulating and the benefits were great.

    Cons

    The cons boil down to an incredibly heavy workload that is coupled with coursework and a very, very low wage.

    I worked at York University

    Pros

    I could work from home, the pay was fair and the work wasn't complicated. When working on-site, the people are pleasant, work spaces are well positioned and management was supremely knowledgable.

    Cons

    Sometimes, I was required to put in long hours and often develop entire areas of the site on short notice for upcoming events. In that respect, there were not many resources provided and a lot of the work was done from scratch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They management is excellent in every way, at the very least, the people I worked with were professional and knowledgable.
