    Pros

    Easy commute and nice vacation package. You don't feel any pressure to deliver on anything, so you can work at your own pace. Free tuition is a nice perk if you have older kids.

    Cons

    Because of the location, few opportunities for career advancement. Salary doesn't come close to matching industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the union to get rid of underperforming staff with a fair, timely process which also encourages those that put in the extra effort to stay.

    Pros

    Variety of work, learning new things, multi-disciplinary teams, flexibility. Some amazing people.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Academic bullying and harrassment with some supervisors. Work stolen and contributions not acknowleged.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than sweeping issues under the carpet and protecting researchers, lookout for the interests of people on the ground doing the work. Perhaps things have changed.

    Pros

    Very easy going working environment. Great flexibility and understanding from management on time off. One of the best employers in the region.

    Cons

    If working as a staff member, the work environment is unionized, which hinders potential for advancement. Mediocre performance in various areas is accepted, building a culture of mediocracy.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to realize the "Constant Employee Development" goal.
