    I have been working at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great part-time job on campus for students with excellent grades. 10 hours a week with 6 hours being spent in the classroom and 3 hours being spent running study group sessions.

    Cons

    Few students take advantage of the service in some departments. In my department I spent roughly 30% of my sessions sitting alone in a room waiting for students to come for help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep offering the program! The students who do come to SL for help are amazing to work with and it's great to watch them succeed.

    I worked at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good benefits
    - Good pay
    - Vacation
    - Further education
    - Good pension

    Cons

    - Too much nepotism
    - Don't expect a promotion. It's really hard to move up if you don't know anyone. Not what you know, its who you know.
    - Too political. Didn't feel like my job was secure.
    - Found it biased. Unless you know anyone from higher up your ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on embracing diversity and treating each other with respect like the NAIT way.

    I worked at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology as a contractor

    Pros

    Ridiculously high compensation for management.

    Cons

    NAIT seems to have acquired a reputation for discrimination. Saw a lot of this happen during my time at this place. If you are a person of colour or immigrant, or a woman (pregnant or not), you should consider staying away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some credible diversity in there, especially at leadership, executive, and board ranks.

    Pros

    Overall this has been a good place to work. When necessary training has been and is available, certifications and professional development encouraged. Possibilities are there to move between roles and departments.

    Cons

    Over the years there have been some tough times, management and staff occasionally seemed to lose touch. Not all departments are created equal either.

    I worked at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people
    Good pay including benefits and pension
    10 days off at Christmas break
    Good training
    Instructor 90
    Contract 45/hr
    Director Range 114-137
    Manager Range 95-114
    Front office/clerks 30-65 (highfor specialized roles like advisors)

    Cons

    Too political, lots of favoritism. Cronyism and nepotism in all areas and levels. Leaves employees questioning leadership.
    NAIT way is preached and not always followed
    Lots of turnover in leadership (seems good people are all leaving)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cronyism and nepotism. NAIT Way now means No Way for promotion or equality. Too many new leaders brining in own people. That happens everywhere but it's seems more so now then 10 years ago. Heard some in Student Services call it NAITQuest (too many from NorQuest College). LOL!
