Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 August 2013
The project I've been working on is exciting. Usually I design my own devices and experiments to solve problem. I also order all the stuffs I need for my project, including materials, equipments etc. I've learned lots of thing from my co-workers who are dedicated to their researches. They are smart and hard-working people. The hardest part of the job is how to apply my knowledge to real life problems. There are two things in my job I feel the most enjoyable: (1) concept design (2) device prototyping. I really enjoy bringing my idea into the real world. If my deice can be used by others, I will be very very proud of it.

A great place to work and study for students looking for on campus jobs. My supervisors have also been very great and inspiring.I wish I could still work at the architecture library even after I graduated.

Public Relations Specialist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 July 2017
It is a nice place to work at with a very helpful team and great individuals. You are allowed to work at your own pace as long as you meet your timelines, and you also get amazing free food at the free seminars and talks you get to attend!
Summer Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 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.

Lead Engineer (Former Employee) – Toronto – 14 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.
