Simon Fraser University Employee Review

Relaxed and Room to Learn

Overall a relaxed atmosphere, good work life balance and lots of opportunities to learn as they are a University.Take home pay isn't very competitive, but the benefit package is great and could offset it, including 4 weeks paid vacation to start PLUS Christmas week paid off.

Great!!

Extremely great management with the friendly surrounding. Work covers programming for the project that will be used for research studies and clinic treatment.

Decent pay and good work-life balance

No interview required for this position (heard one or two departments do require one though).Teaching assistants are unionized so there is the added benefit of getting paid for extra hours and added benefits.

Good place for students to start their journey in academia

Huge place so my review might not reflect the general trends, but I worked for a lab and really enjoyed working there. The lab supervisor is really nice and I learned tons about research and lots of insights.
