I have been working at University of Ottawa as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Worked on a term contract with the University Library. There is a strong body of leadership, an openess to trying new things, and a desire for even their short-term employees to grow on the job.

Cons

Cultural interta. There is some difficulty to having the org adapt to new technology. Still uses Libguides, for example. This is the only example I can thing of, and in no way should be a make-or-break thing. I had a fantastic time working for them.

Advice to Management

Stay the course, but beware the looming fiscal crisis.
