Professional Practice and Simulation Coordinator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 April 2018
I enjoyed working at Ryerson. Teaching in Nursing is very different than practicing Nursing, so one will either like it or not. Management was very approachable, and the other staff are all very pleasant to work with.
Low salary (Typical of academia, not Ryerson specifically)
Graduate teaching assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 April 2018
I learnt a lot from Ryerson on the technical front from my supervisor. The professors are very knowledgable and most of them are very helpful. They tend to help even if they are not from my department. The working hours are long. I'm a workaholic, so I don't mind it. In fact I love working late during the workdays. But from my perspective I believe Ryerson still follows the traditional organizational setup and needs a revamp. Still most processes are done through manual paperwork, CR takes days to fix. The hardest part is dealing with the administration with respect to repetitive paperwork. They require the same information twice or thrice, which increases work duration and reduces productivity due to the redundancy in paperwork. This could be avoided if Ryerson moves all of it's systems to a more digitized platform.

Student Learning Center Specialist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 March 2018
Working at the SLC was great. We were trained exactly on what to do and how to carry out procedures. They are very flexible with scheduling, and they understand the work/student life balance is important. The team themselves is very friendly and open, and I find myself enjoying coming in to work every day.
Excellent experience integrating theory with practice.
