    I worked at Ryerson University

    Pros

    Many positions are unionized if you're lucky enough to get one.
    Ryerson is a stable organization to work for.

    Cons

    Culture - There is a big difference between the culture of full time staff that have stayed for 20+ years vs the newer, contracted staff. Because of the difference in working styles (Slow pace vs faster pace) it can create some friction.
