Stressful but good benefits
Human Resources Operations Assistant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB29 August 2013
The pay and benefits are beyond good. But, you'd better have iron will and a great way to relieve stress because you'll be pushed to your limits and then some and then some more. It's a hard, fast, and demanding place to be. But honestly, the benefits do make it worth every bit.
Pros
Benefits are amazing
Cons
Very stressful work environment

Research Associate on soft money
Research Associate (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB4 December 2017
A research associate position is basically a volunteer position which holds out the hope that sometime, someday you might be paid. There is no support for the position through the university - only the professor under whom you work controls that.
If you enjoy research for research's sake, it is fun to do, but do not expect recognition or financial rewards.
Pros
exciting research
Cons
zero institutional support or reward
