I worked at McGill University part-time
Great staff and good work environment.
None. Everyone was very nice and friendly to work with.
Challenging and smart atmosphere.
Open and friendly staff.
Less contact with industry.
I worked at McGill University full-time (More than a year)
Students are motivated which makes working for the university extremely rewarding. Benefits are fantastic.
Salary is somewhat lower than what other universities in Montreal offer. As with all higher education, working environment has a lot of politics.
You have plenty of free time and summer Fridays, 9 sick days and everybody often calls in sick.
There is very little to do. Management is unskilled.
I have been working at McGill University (Less than a year)
Administrative lock, Tedious funding process, Difficult career advancement
Advice to Management
Make it easier for reimbursement when away on McGill business
I worked at McGill University (More than 3 years)
cheap housing nearby, studio apartments go for ~750 CAD
excellence travel opportunities for conferences and ability to visit particle physics experiments
good, stable funding
Poor administration and HR that is not clued into what you are doing. Must be completely self-directed and self-motivated for research. Supervisor will not set specific objectives or direction for research. You must be an independent researcher.
While I worked as a student they were rather understanding of my academic priorities.
None that I can think of.
I worked at McGill University (More than 5 years)
academic field, full of research sources
low salary, have to think about your project all the time, not have much personal life
I worked at McGill University full-time (Less than a year)
Freedom to explore new ideas, especially laterally
see pros, it's easy to get lost down rabbit holes
Good way for a student to make some extra money and meet other people not in their field of study... Allows you to get to know your University better...friendly work environment...
Might be more difficult around mid terms and finals...have to manage your time well.
