Administration in West 49 campus
on 6 August 2022
Solid collaborative environment with friendly people across the college

Langara is a great place for early and mid career individuals. It is friendly, open, supportive and invested in helping newhires succeed. However, like many post secondary institutions, declining govt funding and increasing international student demand has caused much growth and adjustment over the past 5 years. Huge student enrollment and lack of planning how to anticipate and manage has caused many divides across the college as well as put pressure on systems upgrading. Progress is slow, bit it is positive.

Flexible work environment

You can work from home or in-office depending on the job-type. Work environment is good but some hiring staff (including managers) are not fair and not worth to be worked with again.

No Work Drama and Fun Job

The job is fun and everyone is so kind and approachable. The management's expectations, directions, and orientation are clear. You get paid on time though the pay is a little bit over minimum wage. The managers are very organized and the activities are well planned. You get a small group to lead so you don't need to be constantly counting the students. Having worked at another school doing similar work, I would much prefer Langara College.

Little opportunities for advancement

Great place to work. Enjoy working with different teams, services, and technologies. Lots of turnover here. Little opportunity for advancement. Hard to get decisions made. Most of the leaders I report have limited knowledge of my work and so people and culture drive decisions more than effectiveness, efficiency, and innovation best practices. Lots of external leaders being hired; overwhelmed with information and push to deliver on goals their managers have been unable to deliver. Tension and stress is transferred a lot to the teams they manage. Plenty of opportunities to dive deeper into your area of expertise but hard to get noticed. I love it here but will have to look elsewhere for advancement opportunities.

Rewarding Work

Working as a TA was an enjoyable experience. I felt that I was fairly compensated and enjoyed being able to help students grasp complex topics. I would highly suggest becoming a TA at Langara.
