Excellent people environment with co-workers and patients, above average compensation, exellent benefits and family-worklife balance
Business Manager (Former Employee), Hamilton, OntarioOctober 9, 2014
Pros: staff awards and events, education for life
Cons: large staff population so there is not the chance to meet others out of your faculty
McMaster University is one of the best employers in Ontario and the reason is obvious. A strong work-life balance, above average compensation and benefits, staff awards, lifetime learning in any area of choice.

Mangers are well trained to deal with any situation and everyone works as part of a strong team.

Dealing with patients in a professional manner – more... is always critical but training is readily available. – less

Instructor (Current Employee), HamiltonOctober 2, 2014
It is a great place to learn about health economics. I really like the faculty, they are very knowledgeable and very much approachable. Almost everyone has open-door policy and the resources are made readily available for students to utilize in their research. I like the staff in the RDC; they are great and very friendly.

Great environment and great people, and good recreational facilities on campus.
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: good environment
As a research assistant in process systems design, there is a lot of work on computer. Typical day involves staying in office for majority of day, while meeting with grad student and supervisor every few days. But it is manageable when there is an interest in research being done!

Allows for creativity
Lecturer (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONJuly 2, 2014
Pros: great food on campus
Cons: parking services
I loved working with talented 3rd and 4th year students.
I fully appreciated the complexities of the task with
respect to the student culture, the faculty needs
and the supervisor's dual role.
I wasn't a fan of the parking authority. I also felt
the online part of the job posed too big a risk to
both my students and myself.
Also, they need a job center – more... for music students--also
debt counselling.
And finally, the commute was ugly on so many days--hardest
winter ever.

Otherwise, music students, faculty and admin at McMaster U.
kick some ****! – less
