Good Culture, No Opportunities

The university has a great youthful culture, but unfortunately most positions are filled internally and even if you are able to become an internal applicant, there is likely someone slotted for the position, very little room for growth or upward career paths.

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.

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

Great School, Great Teachers, Technologically Advanced

I go to school everyday, where classes run from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm depending on the scheduling of the courses you are registered for. I gained the knowledge on the fundamentals of engineering, and project management, as well as various other soft skills. Other students at the university are easy to get along with, and are eager to help each other to pursue higher goals. The hardest part of going to this school is the 40 minute commute each morning, and occasionally the lack of study spaces. The most enjoyable part of attending this university is the student life and culture of the various people I have encountered throughout my education.

Pros

Occasional free lunch provided by administration, Excellent lab facilities, Encouraging faculty members

Cons

Occasional long hours, 4 of 5 days a week (8am - 10pm)

Professional environment that allows for innovation to blossom

I worked under a number of professors creating digital content and designing video games. The atmosphere was professional in terms of deadlines and objectives, but implementation and design was much more free forming allowing for me as a designer to create some great products that were fun and met the desired objectives.

Pros

Great people and Mentorship

Cons

Long hours

Empresa sólida com ambiente receptivo

A empresa possui uma estrutura de cargos e funções bem distribuída, que facilita o empenho dos colaboradores. Ao longo do dia, havia muita troca de informações entre os membros da equipe e a coordenação das atividades se dava ao fim de cada turno. Os colegas de trabalho são cooperativos e abertos a novas ideias. A parte mais difícil do trabalho consiste em gerenciar os prazos de montagem em função do tempo de entrega das peças pelos fornecedores. O que mais agrada é a flexibilidade de funções e horários, bem como a direção amistosa da empresa.

Dynamic and exciting workplace

Working at UOIT was a great experience! There were so many different aspects of forensic science that I used with every day. A typical day would be:-get there early to set up for the morning lab (clean, set out equipment for all the students, make enough reagents for everybody etc).-supervise labs and help students with any questions they have-show students how certain lab equipment works (RT-PCR, ABI 3130, fingerprint development chamber)-clean up lab and prepare for the afternoon group-labs ranged from microscopy and pipetting to DNA extractions and processing evidence-also participated in department meetings with the Dean of Science and helped run open houses and 4th year Honours thesis projects

Pros

no two days were the same: constantly learning and adapting to new situations

Cons

long hours: not paid for all my time there
