    I worked at Concordia University (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good staff. Cheap labor for students. Excellent place to work.

    Very poor pay scale ALL around.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a pay increase for all employees to compensate for Austin's cost of living increases!

    Pros

    There is a nice, friendly community.

    Cons

    Nothing to do with the people, it's just that contract teaching is the pits. To make any sort of living at it you have to teach 5 courses or more per semester. If one school doesn't have that for you, you have to cobble it together from two or more schools. So driving around gets to be a big hassle, etc. Don't teach on a contract unless you absolutely have to.

    I have been working at Concordia University part-time

    Pros

    Incredible flexibility. Great supervisor, room for innovation, personal access, great people to work with.

    Cons

    We need to buoy more exposure and advertisement for what our lab can do and the high traffic we're receiving.

    Advice to Management

    Need benefits, salary that reflects the dedication, positivity and problem solving we embody. My lab is directly improving the appearance and portfolios of its graduates.

    I worked at Concordia University as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Place is in downtown, which is close to all services
    - You might be able to find a professor who will agree to let you TA or pay you more

    Cons

    - One of the lowest payment universities in Canada in both research and TA
    - Advisors, accounting, other department work independently so you most likely to get wrong information
    - Not a great place for both research and course based students who are looking for great and challenging environment

    Advice to Management

    Departments and sections should be all connected and aware about all old and new regulations.
