No opinion of CEO

I have been working at University of Toronto full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

unionized position so raises automatic, good benefits, extra perks such as subsidized metro passes

Cons

no bonuses or raises based on productivity/hard work, anything related to administration takes a long time.

Advice to Management

Don't know why it takes so long to get things done when requested (ie: repairs, feedback for questions, etc.)
