    Pros

    The school has a tremendous amount of resources for students which is great for graduate students. In fact, its library access is among the top ten of North America. You can meet scholars from a broad range of culture and background.

    Cons

    Similar to other big universities, resources are likely scattered. Therefore, you might have to search a bit.

    Pros

    Pay is decent for the work. Holidays are a plus. Free work phone. Somewhat laid back environment Job security is there.

    Cons

    Tons of micromanagement. Kids of bureaucracy. Managers steal ideas from employees and give no credit to employee except when the manager messes up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and start promoting people with actual skill and not fill positions because you "know" them. We already have enough incompetent people working here.

    Pros

    great community learning skills strong leadership great opportunities i really enjoyed the overall experience

    Cons

    I could have had little more guidance on how to follow up with certain tasks, as i was unsure if there were some people who were aware what was going on

    Advice to Management

    I would like to say it was a great time and place for someone learning to work in a team and who want to excell to reach greater heights

    Pros

    Stimulating community and lots of resources.

    Cons

    Graduation times for research based degrees are far too long (longer than advertised): 7 year PhDs and 3 year Masters are pretty common. (Average for PhD in my department is 6.5 years.)

    Advice to Management

    Reduce graduation times! Had I know this before, I would not have come to UofT.
