Graduate Student (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL2 September 2016
Memorial University offers young researchers ample opportunity to gain practical research skills and exposure to various facets of their field. Memorial's library is well stocked and labs are very well equipped. The atmosphere is friendly and support staffs are always willing to help. A good place to start your career in specialized fields of engineering.

Good place to work if you manage to get a permanent position.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL12 August 2016
A typical day of work consisted of setting up experiments for the lab.
I developed good language skills towards instructing first-year students basic courses in Biology.
Management is terrible in this place, the science building is collapsing and seems to be a very bureaucratic place to make an impact to Newfoundlanders.
Co-workers are good, in my area all of us young and enthusiastic.
The hardest part of the job is not getting paid enough, compared to other major Universities in Canada MUN, pay grades are low.
The must enjoyable part of the job is the flexibility.
Pros
Good environment to work
Cons
Bureaucracy

Software Developer (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL13 May 2016
It gives us opportunities to solve problems by ourselves and group. Assignment and project should be easily done with or without group. Teamwork is quite important for certain tasks.

Empresa muito dinâmica e agradável
Auxiliar de Pesquisa (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL3 December 2015
Participei de trienamento para manuseio de produtos de laboratório e, após o treinamento, passava a maior parte do dia no laboratório realizando experimentos da pesquisa.
Havia pouca relação interpessoal com os demais colaboradores, sendo que os momentos de interação eram sempre agradáveis.
Aprendi a importância de realizar as atividades com extrema competência e concentração, uma vez que atividades específicas de uma importante pesquisa estavam sendo confiadas a mim.
A parte mais difícil do trabalho foi a rápida necessidade de costume com diferentes culturas (colaboradores de países diferentes);
A parte mais agradável foi a oportunidade de aprendizado não somente profissional, mas também pessoal.

Excellent place to work at.
Post doctoral fellow (Former Employee) –  Toronto, Canada17 April 2015
I learned a lot. It was very stimulating environment however involved a lot of hard work. Coworkers were friendly and helpful in general. The research work in the lab was very enjoyable. However, the guidance from the supervisor was not up to the mark and therefore the hard work was not properely steared to obtain the publishable results.
Pros
Big name of the Institute.
Cons
Lack of the required supervisory help.
