    I worked at University of Guelph part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked with lots of great people, a very beautiful campus, mostly modern buildings, the campus is central i the city and close to downtown but also good for commuting, very clean and beautiful grounds.

    Cons

    The parking is very expensive for Guelph, the motivation in the workers can sometimes be lackluster due to security in jobs and lack of incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some incentives to make people work harder, more motivation. Most people do the bare-minimum. Classic problem with government/public sector employees

    Pros

    Chefs are personable and communicate with staff
    Schedules are set and constant
    Benefits include medical, dental, bus pass subsidy

    Cons

    Starting a position at the beginning of the semester is stressful for everyone as the new students flood in and have as many questions as do the new hires!

    Pros

    Beautiful, small campus that gives you the feeling of being part of a community. One of the most research intensive universities in Canada.

    Cons

    Not the university to go to if you're looking for a lot of cultural diversity. Some areas around the downtown area are not the nicest to live in.
