    I worked at University of Ottawa

    Pros

    location, accessibility are two important elements to the favor of the university as a workplace. there are so many facilities on campus to the benefit of the staff and students

    Cons

    you need to be bilingual for most jobs, it would be have been much better if all posted jobs would be open to external candidates, not just internal ones

    Advice to Management

    people need to be able to access more facilities on their time off, that should be extended too
