    I worked at University of Lethbridge full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, good benefits, lots of vacation. No real pressure if you wish to coast. Opportunities to work outside of your skill set.

    Cons

    Nepotistic promotion practices, managers who can't manage. It's all about the politics. If you're looking to build a career, this is the wrong place and will eventually suck the ambition out of you.

    Advice to Management

    Forget the politics and look to promote/reward staff who actually deliver value.
