Difficult management but fair pay
My position was very metric focused rather than focused on actual success. There is a lot of red tape so things often move slow. Overall it did provide a very fair salary and work life balance.

Research Assistant in University of Alberta (Edmonton), AB
on 7 June 2022
Great university
Great university to learn and work as a RA or TA. There is a significant power imbalance between the students and supervisors. If you can build a good working relationship with your supervisor, you will have a very pleasant and productive research/work experience. Otherwise, you will run into problems every step of the way until you graduate.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Edmonton, AB
on 6 June 2022
Good work-life balance, Bad rate of compensation
Overall, good research facilities but very great PIs. Some are really hard to work with. The pay is terrible in the Chemical Engineering department. Postdocs are generally abused with huge workload and minimum pay.
