Hard but rewarding. During Covid was harder but usually is a very isolating experience. Most important thing is having a good fit with the supervisor

Great place to work
Enjoyed working at McGill. The atmosphere was good and the perks were great. 3 weeks vacation after 1 year, 10 Fridays off from st Jean Baptist until Labour day, closed between Christmas and the day after New Year, all PAID. The pay rate is good and great people to work with (staff, professors and students). A very pleasant environment.

Horrible place to work for as international. Believe me I have been a student even here! Spent more than 5 bloody years in here. Would never recommend it to anyone. It is NOT inclusive! You are lost and ALWAYS on your own!

Conservative and inefficient workplace but stable
McGill is a stable but conservative employer. You can expect to work there for a long time, your entire career perhaps but the bureaucracy and opportunities for advancement can birth be stifling. I would only recommend it for someone who would like to either pad their resume for a few years, or conversely, find a place to wind down their career in stability and comfort.
