I worked at University of Calgary full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The research environment was good. The benefits we fine. The access to facilities and sports was great. Overall a good university to work for.

Cons

The weather isn't great. It gets really cold in the winter. Other than that, not too bad. Calgary itself is full of people driving hammers and flaunting their money. This may be a con, depending on what you're into.

Advice to Management

Probably not relevant here.

    I worked at University of Calgary full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of great funding and opportunities to work with other researcher and peers in my field. Provided all the necessary tools to be an effective researcher.

    Cons

    Being a university, they suffer from the typical bureaucracy that all publicly funded institutions have to deal with. That said, everyone I worked with was aware of this and worked within it.
