    Pros

    Great Atmosphere in the university. People around you are really very friendly. Close knit team. They paid me decent salary which was enough to take care of my living expenses.

    Cons

    The wheather is not that great. It snows heavily and the place is covered with snow for more than half an year.
    Sometimes you would have to climb on to a 20ft ladder to finish a few installations and won't suggest someone who has fear of heights to take this up

    Advice to Management

    The management is really good. They are friendly.

  2. Meh.

    Pros

    Passionate people eager to collaborate and create positive social change. The U is invested in educating its staff. There are plenty of opportunities for professional development and exposure to diverse topics. Employees receive 50%discount for tuition.

    Cons

    Salary for entry-level staff is quite low. Mid-level positions are scarce. The commute is awful.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency among departments. A department head possess much control. Little change is seen for department heads who create negative work environments or have problematic attitudes.

  10. It has been good so far

    Pros

    The best thing about working here is the professors you interact with. They are typically understanding and interesting. The ability to network with professors is amazing.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge of working here is working with scheduling and administrative personnel. Many support staff personnel are condescending and incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    my advice would be to streamline on-boarding and improve efficiency. theres a lot of improvement that can be made with a very small amount of effort
