Productive and Challenging experience of scientific discovery
Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONApril 30, 2015
Pros: Flexible hours
Cons: Salary/Benefits
Excellent place to work for someone with who loves challenges and innovation. I have learnt project management and leading a project with industrial partners. Management and co-workers are great. We share each other's expertise and we grow as a team. The hardest part comes when we face a burning challenge where no one to seek a help for- very common in a research environment. And the joy comes soon after when we manage to solve the problem and get the recognition.

Teacher (part-time) (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONFebruary 5, 2015
I am a part-time teacher at McMaster University.
I spend only a few hours each day at the University.
The staff, at any level, is very skilled and happy to help at any moment.
The management and my colleagues are helpful and fun to work with.
It is a really pleasure to work in this environment and to try to add my skills to form the future specialists.

a black hole of innovation
Administrative work (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: a lively environment
Cons: poor culture, poor management
The structure of the University means no departments communicate with each other. Often, people in different departments are doing the exact same projects, but not communicating with each other. Very inefficient!
Just look at how outdated the webiste is...that will give you a good idea of how fractured this institution is.

Do not work for this Institution
I can't say (Former Employee), I can't sayNovember 27, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: toxic and discriminatory work environment.
Not a nice place to work
wide spread discrimination
many employees wrongfully terminate and escorted off the property
employees terminated while on sick leave
if your are an employee reporting to someone involved in an office romance watch out
Old culture
Faculty members are treated like gods, staff are treated disrespectfully
Women I know of have been harassed my tenured professors

Do not work there unless you are a student or wanting to start off your career. Trust me, few people make it to retirement at McMaster
