    I have been working at Lakehead University as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not a high standard university.

    Cons

    Poor communication, unreliable management, unprofessional attitude. Administrative assistants without training act as managers, yet have no managerial skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A shift in attitude is needed if you are ever to attract world-class standing, which apparently you aim for.

    I worked at Lakehead University

    Pros

    Not fast paced, less stress.

    Cons

    Miserable co-workers and conceited bosses.
    Not enough hours to be given, when promised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix your attitudes. You are there BECAUSE OF THE STUDENTS. Don't treat them like they are stupid or unimportant.

    The interaction with students and personal satisfaction is great; however, opportunities for advancement do not exist.

    Current Employee - Contract Lecturer in Thunder Bay, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Lakehead University

    Pros

    Great students, good overall atmosphere, close-knit environment, good colleagues, close to all amenities of living, relatively small class sizes, autonomy.

    Cons

    University is too small to allow contract lecturers and part-time faculty to advance in their careers; management does not communicate with such employees sufficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When cutbacks are required, please consider the students. Lakehead has always prided itself on small class sizes, so cutting back on front line lecturers is not a good idea. Consider cutting back at layers of administration instead.

    Pros

    thunder bay is a great city lots to do. research is funded quite significantly, work is quite independant and supervision
