A good and conducive environment to work.
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee), Saskatoon, SKMay 4, 2014
Pros: availability of all equipment needed.
Cons: working alone
A typical day of work starts with checking all the equipment and setting up the laboratory for the day's experiment. Obtaining research data and analysing the data forms part of the most exciting part of my job. However, working until the late hours is something that happens on daily basis. This is because once a particular experiment is started, such – more... must be completed before equipment are shut down. – less

Chanllenging place but with a lot of fun

A great place for academic enhancement. Being an Teaching Assistant is a great way of practice public speaking skills and communicating with individuals.

Alright place to work
Groundskeeper (Former Employee), Saskatoon, SKFebruary 5, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: no room for advancement
The University was a alright place to work. My typical day at work would be clearing off snow from sidewalks. My co-workers were very good to work with. The hardest part of the job was trying to get all the areas done. There were a lot of priorities when working at the University but not enough guys to help.

Nobody in particular (Former Employee), SaskatoonApril 4, 2013
Pros: good vacation for employees; decent work-life balance
Cons: toxic political mess; hierarchical
not a great place. They strive to be at the 50th percentile in terms of salary. Very hierarchical in structure. With the budget cuts, not much in terms of job security, and not much vision or leadership from senior management.
