Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Chemical engineering

Great university to work at
Generally, it is a great place for young professionals to work and gain experience. Kingston is a small but quiet town, also great for families with small kids.

Pleasant workplace
Pleasant experience working here, but management can be slow or uninterested in responding to complaints or concerns. Pay is pretty bad, especially if you are in a non-unionized position.

Amazing opportunity to build skillset and network with other researchers.
It was great! They encourage remote opportunities and have a supportive workplace culture. The group of researchers I worked with were very organized and time-efficient.

Exceptional University and Community
Queen's offers exceptional professional opportunities and benefits in an incredibly innovative and balanced environment.It is a beautiful campus to both study and work at; immersed within a city of Canada's richest history. Queen's is diverse and inclusive, it has global reach while being deeply committed to the Kingston community. Highly recommend Queen's for the professional and life opportunities.

Understaffed and disorganized
Biggest issues are: disorganization, no communication, slow administration, no direction, lack of response, decentralized management structureI do not feel safe to be open with my coworkers and management about being a member of the LBGTQ+ community. The individual departments exploit part time employees by dangling the "carrot" in front of them with the vague possibility of full time employment.I do not recommend trying to work multiple part time positions. It negatively impacts your mental health. At the end of each day I'm so tired mentally and need time to recover to the point I don't feel I could NOT do any extra professional development. I'd change the hiring process, forcing the hiring managers actually talk with the coworkers of the potential employee and less emphasis of story time with the new hire. To me the hiring process is biased against those who have a oral and written learning disability, and/or introverts.
