This was my Capstone project which I needed to complete in order to graduate. We worked with a client which wanted us to implement a chat bot to help new customers.

Research is a fun job, that includes statistical and graphical analysis of data. This job inculcated critical thinking in me and improved my technical skills. I learnt a major part of it with the help of my employer who is not just supportive but also informative and intelligent. My management is superb and flexible.

Working as a seminar leader for an introductory HR class at Ryerson gave me an opportunity to exercise my adult learning skills. The Professors were very supportive and encouraged the TAs to run the seminars as they saw fit.
Pros
Leading the seminar

I’ll be able to work with my colleagues often and in an informal, engaging way. Employees will be expected to bounce ideas off of each other and work well as part of a team. I won’t be siloed from the rest of the company, but I may need to ask for independent work if I want it.

Ryerson was a pleasure to work at. Good people, good reputation. I think there are challenges across the board with education these days, Ryerson is not immune from that.

Worked as a Research Assistant during the final years of University. Lucky enough to be recommended by one of my colleagues. Have to really be willing to learn and be involved with the research being done and be able to adapt to changing schedules.

I found the leadership responsive to my suggestions, and I had the opportunity to meet many people outside of my typical scope of work. Ryerson was welcoming and supporting to my career aspirations.

Good workplace and sometime fun place, takes a bit of time to teach student at the beginning. Teachers and/or professors are helpful. Students are generally having good attitude.

A typical day as a recruiter would involve visiting 2-5 educational institutions per day and interacting with students and faculty at each location.

It's hard for me to give a review on Ryerson as a company, as my position involved a lot of off-campus and independent work.


I will say there is great communication and care provided by the team I worked with at Ryerson. I found there is a big 'team player' mentality, even though the role I participated in was very independent. They are committed to excellence and have high standards for the people they employ.

This review applies not necessarily to the entire Ryerson university, but solely to the Real Institute, which is part of the university.
A great team of teachers, but badly managed.
