Challenges
Information Technology Specialist (Current Employee), Kemptville, ONMarch 23, 2015
Pros: the money and the benefits.
Cons: the college is closing.
Within a normal day there are always at least four challenges that arise from printing problems to defective hardware. I love the problem solving and the feeling of all the accomplishments throughout the day. As for my management they let me make all my own decisions unless there is a major cost over 5000.00. I love the flexibleness about my job it lets me get this done easily and quickly without having to worry about what decisions I have made throughout the day. I feel I have made all the right decisions and I always ensure people are satisfied.

A very accepting workplace
Advisor for Students (Current Employee), Guelph, ONJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: stress free work environment
Cons: distance from home
University of Guelph is the best place I have ever worked as its employees and students are extremely caring and accepting of everyone. I do not want to leave this job but with the lack of security in this position with working on a renewable contract (pending work) every year it is not a reliable source of income with now having a family to raise. I also have a distance to commute and with a new baby it is not really feasible so I am looking for work closer to home.

A good university
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Guelph, ONJanuary 6, 2015
I learned a lot while working at the University of Guelph. I gained skills in experimental design and statistics. The laboratory was very friendly and the collaboration between co-workers enabled a professional environment. The hardest part of the job was to leave it because my co-workers became my friends and the projects became my source of knowledge.
