No opinion of CEO

Pros

you have your own office; work with students, professors, and other researchers; living cost in Waterloo is low; close to banks, doctor's office, dentist, restaurants.

Cons

quite difficult to get a permanent position as an external applicant; the hiring policies are not very clear.

Advice to Management

hopefully when some questions related to hiring are asked in Human Resource department, someone in HR could be able to answer them instead of asking us to go back and ask our faculty stuff.
