Huge potential for learning and personal growth
Research Assistant (Current Employee) –  Telerobotics and Fluid Power lab19 January 2014
Very little oversight on any project, self-motivated, and self-guided work is the primary methods employed.

I learned Matlab coding, C++ coding, robotics, embedded systems, Arduino based development, interfacing between hardware and software.

The hardest part of working at the university is self motivation, very little guidance or encouragement is given, so to complete a project you must push yourself.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Negative reinforcement management style

It's a rabbit hole for post-doctoral fellows and graduate students
POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB9 February 2018
Working at University of Manitoba as a post-doctoral fellow is like entering a sand dune. You just get sucked in without any hope of getting a permanent full-time position anywhere. The University has no program in place that can facilitate intake of trained personnel leading to brain drain.
Pros
Staff benefits are one of the best in industry. Good work-life balance
