    I worked at University of Victoria part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus with some good perks (low cost public transit passes for some employees, free basic gym facilities, online and physical access to a fabulous library with thousands of academic journals). Fairly good wages and possibility of flex-time in some positions.

    Cons

    Some unions on campus have been without contract for some time and it is possible/likely there will be job action in September 2012. Layoffs may also be in the cards for the end of this year or the beginning of next. There is a wide pay disparity between management and other groups. Most disturbing however was the lack of repercussions among senior staff responsible for data security and confidentiality following the January 2012 theft of personal data (birthdates, banking info and the like) from a university building. Certain buildings on campus seem to be afflicted with 'sick building syndrome' and health of those who have worked in these buildings for a long time could be in jeopardy.

    Advice to Management

    Address the glaring disparity between executive pay rates and that of lower echelon employees especially. Look at the practice of laying people off during the summer and consider what that does for morale. Discipline or perhaps even terminate (or roll back pay?) those who have ultimate responsibility for data security and confidentiality of employee data. Negotiate fair terms with those unions whose contracts have expired.
