RI-MUHC is a great place to work for a limited time but not somewhere to stay, at least not if you are not a faculty, physician or director. For most positions there is no advancement possibility. The benefit package is good but salaries are ridiculously low. It offers a very positive work environment though: nice colleagues, nice ambiance, very well equipped, and you get to work with real experts. Overall, it will be a positive experience for you.
Pros
Positive work environment, flexible working hours, good work-life balance
Cons
Low salaries, low chance of career development

it was a great place for beginning, with friendly environment and colleagues and the difficulty depends on the supervisor that accepted you and also the project you should handle.

Started as a graduate student and continued working as a research assistant at the RI. Learned a lot of new research techniques and met a lot of researchers. Hard to compare management because every lab has a different person hiring and managing staff.

Large institution with subdivisions and different departments all within one centre.
It can be a wonderful place to work for the clinical staff and access to research facilities for more unified positioning for research and health discovery.

We are an academic research institute. I have learned many interdisciplinary research skills. Our working hours are flexible, but occasionally I needed to work in the weekends and after hours. My co-workers are Drs and PhDs from all over the world. The most enjoyable part of the job is working on a cutting-edge technology of bioscience.

During my stage at the RI MUHC I interacted with a very solid, professional, quiet, and nice team. The co-workers taught me a lot of new things and I enjoyed completing the tasks they were preparing for me. Every morning I was very exciting to wake up and go to work because their support, encouragements, guidance and patience were remarkable.
I have learned to arrange a meeting schedule for the rest of the year and to reserve any of the conference rooms available; to scan, check and filed Signing authority forms; to close accounts. I have enjoyed all the tasks I accomplished. Therefore, the hardest part of the job was talking on the phone (emotions).


I greatly appreciate the attention of RI MUHC staff toward me.
