I have been working at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology full-time

Pros

Overall this has been a good place to work. When necessary training has been and is available, certifications and professional development encouraged. Possibilities are there to move between roles and departments.

Cons

Over the years there have been some tough times, management and staff occasionally seemed to lose touch. Not all departments are created equal either.

    I worked at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people
    Good pay including benefits and pension
    10 days off at Christmas break
    Good training
    Instructor 90
    Contract 45/hr
    Director Range 114-137
    Manager Range 95-114
    Front office/clerks 30-65 (highfor specialized roles like advisors)

    Cons

    Too political, lots of favoritism. Cronyism and nepotism in all areas and levels. Leaves employees questioning leadership.
    NAIT way is preached and not always followed
    Lots of turnover in leadership (seems good people are all leaving)

    Advice to Management

    Stop cronyism and nepotism. NAIT Way now means No Way for promotion or equality. Too many new leaders brining in own people. That happens everywhere but it's seems more so now then 10 years ago. Heard some in Student Services call it NAITQuest (too many from NorQuest College). LOL!
