    Pros

    Good working experience. Working time is flexible and working load is not heavy. If you want to work for a company for a long time..i would say this is it

    Cons

    I am giving a very neutral observation as I am not one of the many disgruntled employees, I am actually one of the 'content' ones. Salaries are super unbalanced and not fair within the province.

    Master of Applicated Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

    Current Employee - Student  in  Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Student in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    This is a well-known university with a high level of education quality. Studying in Ottawa also provides students an opportunity to experience Canadian culture in capital city.

    Cons

    Language is the first problem, and culture difference is also a trouble to all international students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making some friends from different countries can help a lot in my opinion. Those compatriots who had lived in Canada for several years will offer international students useful advices and relevant experiences in all kinds of aspects.

    Pros

    The job is only a half TA, but the workload is large. University give half TA because the class is small, but did not take the difficulty of the course into consideration.

    Cons

    Working as a TA on campus, the salary is great and the teacher is really nice. Hope I could have done the work very well to not disappoint the professor and the students.
