The best thing about Dalhousie is the work hours which are pretty relaxed. Here you get to meet a lot of faculty members and learn something new everyday. The co workers are really helpful and provide great support.
As a research assistant, you will have my own study area (a table in a lab with a good computer) and you can reach any online source for free for your researches. People are there awesome, everybody is helpful

Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – November 18, 2014
A separate and comfortable desk was allotted to each person. A local server was dedicated to develop projects. Any time access to the working environment. Easy to interact with other colleagues. Switching to new technologies from existing technologies. Learning new technologies and frameworks.
I Believe Dalhousie University is an excellent place to work. You come to work in the morning and you work for a couple of hours and then you meet up with co-workers during coffee break. Management is fair and reliable and quick to act if you have a question or concern. I would say the hardest part of the job is getting used to change and the most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know new people.
