Pros

Grant MacEwan is centrally located the campus is great to work in. The benefit package is quite good and the pension is great (LAPP).

There needs to be more attention paid to areas that are undergoing changes to ensure that the employees are not being over worked and have the proper support.

Advice to Management

Management needs to be more aware of their employees workloads especially during times of change and employment shortages.

    take some business and management courses, get to know your staff, promote less based on perceived personalities and more on merit and ability, be less aloof, show an interest in what the function of the place is all about or retire all ready and let others more interested run the place.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Grant MacEwan College as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Diverse students
    Small class size, but increasing

    Cons

    Terrible politics
    Research-focused
    Over 60% of teaching faculty are sessional and yet we have no voice, no job security, limited benefits, limited opportunities
    Teaching 6 courses a term earns you half what a professor makes for teaching three

    Advice to Management

    Universities are not viable businesses; they are a public good.
    Value your students and your teachers
