Understaffed and overworked

Free tuition, employer-paid benefits

Procurement (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON17 January 2019
All they do is talk, and nothing ever gets done. They lack accountability and it is ingrained in the culture. For every one hard worker there's 10 that are lazy.

Lecturer, Department of Canadian Studies (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON7 November 2018
Carleton provides a warm community of educators, students, and professionals committed to education. However, often the emphasis from management is too often on cost-cutting while also big spending projects that don't enhance student learning.
