MacEwan University was a great place to work where making friends was part of the package. It is highly collaborative, open to change and improving processes, and where there was clear direction about university priorities. People took pride in working there and were very proud of the student experience offered through faculty and staff. The institution went through a lot of change while I was there and continues to do so as it works with shrinking government budgets.
Pros
Great downtown location, lots of hard-working people dedicated to delivery an excellent student experience, beautiful well-cared for facility, good working environment, great places to eat near by, right down the street from Rogers Place, plenty of parking
Cons
Restructuring takes places too often, job security fluctuates with government funding

Fast paced yet manageable. Working conditions are excellent, staff are pleasant and overall environment is healthy and positive. Leadership is outstanding overall in Students and Teaching. Only negative is the budget restraints that the government is putting on PSLA at this time.

I work in the International Department here. This team of administrators is top notch as they are all of a team of 4. The only issue is there really is no chance for advancement, but as I am hardwired as a teacher, it fits with what I do.

Favouritism is rampant! Staff union is non existent . Worst place to work for advancement. HR and union do not support employees. Managers take a passive aggressive approach to employees that suggest improvements or challenge processes. For example , assigning staff projects with unrealistic completion dates. Many dept Managers and Supervisors have never been evaluated by their staff

try not to show how really skilled you are as the seniors do not like being shown up.
Dead weight everywhere and so its an expensive payroll. That's why tuition increases every year

high paying union job with zero fulltime opportunity for over a year.

extremely hard to get a fulltime position here unless you know someone that already works there.
Pros
very good benefits and wages
Cons
extremely hard to get a fulltime position anywhere unless you know someone

I was just a student at MU not a staff member but the small class sizes were nice and profs really wanted you to do well. I did find group projects poorly monitored and often resulted in unfair grading

The College was a great place to work and they provided me with a great amount of responsibility. During my time with the College they developed a new 1,000,000.00 square foot campus in Downtown Edmonton and put me in charge of coordinating with the Consultants. Along with the new build requirements we focused on the requirements of Facilities and running a milt location college.

Excellent university and programs. Most of the nursing instructors display that caring value that is vital for a nurse. That caring and health promoting value radiate in their teachings and how they run their class.
