    I worked at Grant MacEwan College

    Pros

    I had access to the library while I was an employee, and the service staff were helpful.

    Cons

    I think I was passed up for interviews for an internal job postings that I applied to. For some reason, the manager of the dept. I applied to work for told me very informally that I wouldn't be given an interview.

    This educational institution has grown far too quickly, and can't keep up with itself!

    I have been working at Grant MacEwan College

    Pros

    Great vacation benefits - 4 weeks plus Christmas for just over 5 years of service.

    Cons

    There have been huge changes within the University in the past year (financial, student systems), and the roll-out has been far from smooth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is underwhelming at best - not progressive or understanding of work-life balance. I know staff who have been here 20 years and have never had a performance review. There is virtually no chance of advancement.

    Pros

    Grant MacEwan is centrally located the campus is great to work in. The benefit package is quite good and the pension is great (LAPP).

    Cons

    There needs to be more attention paid to areas that are undergoing changes to ensure that the employees are not being over worked and have the proper support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more aware of their employees workloads especially during times of change and employment shortages.

    I have been working at Grant MacEwan College

    Pros

    work life balance, benefit package

    Cons

    anonymous, no recogntion, disconnect between senior management and the business at hand

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take some business and management courses, get to know your staff, promote less based on perceived personalities and more on merit and ability, be less aloof, show an interest in what the function of the place is all about or retire all ready and let others more interested run the place.
