Good place, great community, can be better
Mount Allison University is a good place to work. It could be better, there are some major areas in their management structure, their physical plant (buildings, access, technical areas), and their culture that need work, but overall a good employer. My job is pretty secure, I have a normal 8:30-4:30 M-F routine, it is a school after all. There are few evenings and weekends that I need to work but I'm given a great deal of notice as to when or if that is required of me. This is my first public-sector, big-company type job, all my other jobs were with smaller businesses (75 or fewer employees), so adjusting to the bureaucracy and the positioning and everything that comes with, definitely a steep learning curve for me and the least enjoyable part. The best part has to be the student-focused mindset of the people who work here. At the end of the day we are trying to help and teach young people, and we all work very hard toward that common goal.
