Decent summer job, not enough hours
Summer Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 June 2017
This was a work-study position. It's great for students who want meaningful work on campus but does not provide nearly enough hours. You can work maximum 12 hours per week but there's a cap on how many hours you can work in total (under 100). Pay is minimum wage + 4% in lieu of vacation.

Great work/life balance
Lead Engineer (Former Employee) –  Toronto14 June 2017
I have found out a lot of companies claim great work/life balance, UofT delivers. That said, there are a lot of other issues. A lot of people are stale and incompetent. Getting changes approved and implemented could take months due to poor management or lack of drive.
Pros
stability
Cons
meritocracy
