      • Graduate student - research assistant experience at the University of Toronto

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I have been working at University of Toronto full-time

          Pros

          The University of Toronto provides a widely recognized name in many fields and provides some of the best support for any research. Many departments offer funding to the students working in them. Toronto is also a very nice area and provides a good place to live.

          Cons

          The standards here are extremely high. Going into graduate school, one expects to be challenged and it provides preparation for future work. However, don't go into graduate school at the University of Toronto unless you are serious about your work and willing to endure hardship.

          I have been working at University of Toronto full-time for more than 20 years

          Pros

          Immense freedom, as a faculty member, to explore many aspects of society. A wonderful privilege to teach the next generation.

          Cons

          Very complicated at times; too many smart people make too-complex systems and occasionally lose site of the important thing - the people - the students.
