Depends on the department/faculty

- Lots of toxic behaviours that are enabled- Nepotism is high- If you are of a specific gender, race, age and or relationship with management than you have more access and promotion- Some management are unskilled and use their title and position to hide their incompetence.- Great people that work there however they are frustrated with lack of growth, recognition and the oppressive tactics- University has brought Oshawa a lot of opportunities and image management but leadership is weak, insecure, controlling and toxic.

Pros

Puts Oshawa on the map; great salary and benefits; opportunity to affect change

Cons

Leadership is weak, toxic and focused on maintaining power and brand image; staff are manipulated and frustrated

Good university to study and work at

Ontario Tech University is a good medium sized university with decent faculty. The course choices are limited but overall it is satisfactory. The TA/RA salary/funding is decent as well.

A place for personal and professional growth

The work environment could be described as high-stress at times, as being a teaching assistant involves marking a lot of papers/tests in a short amount of time. In this particular faculty, those in management roles were very understanding and collaborative. The most enjoyable part of the job was feeling supported in my initiatives/ideas, as well as talking directly to students who sought help from you. The most difficult part of the job was dealing with a lot of different personalities, but certainly NOT to a level that caused an overall negative experience. The benefits are great and there are opportunities to advance to other jobs at this workplace.

Great Place with Great People

During my work with Ontario Tech University I experienced much joy and little stress. The salary wasn't amazing, but the environment was greatly appreciated.

Ok

Political environment. Slow decision making. Fun poeple and collegues. There is no career path nor compensation for exceeding expentations. Anual review has no impact therefore there is no incentive to do more as there is no need to do much.

Working for a university...

It's what you'd expect. It's a safe job, great pay and benefits, but it's a huge organization and thus lacks innovation and creativity. I also worked 3 back to back contracts before leaving. I know I would have been kept on if budgets allowed but contracts are a trend at universities and once a contract is up sometimes the job is cut or the job is re-allocated to a completely different department.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Boring

Temporary contract work. Pay was adequate, no benefits, no options for contract renewal. Excellent opportunity for recent graduates or persons looking for temporary work.

Fun to work at

It's a relatively young university with a fun environment to work at. Only problem is that the salary is low for both sessional lecturers and Teacher Assistants and during both of their Unions negotiations employer has announced that they really cannot do more than that!

Great starter job

It's a great place to work to start and gain experience. You become frustrated after a while and look for somewhere with more opportunities to grow. Other institutions provide better benefits with respect to education packages for children and staff/faculty.

Pros

great benefits

Cons

limited room for advancement
