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 – more... 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 – less

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.

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!
