Good university to attend as a student
Good university to attend as a student and there are a lot of things you could learn while you are there. I am not too sure what it would be like working there though.

Since Implementing a new ERP System work culture has dropped significantly
Used to be a great place to work but with the implementation of a new ERP system the staff are now overworked and knowing that the new system costs will result in massive layoffs staff have become defensive and unwilling to take ownership. Toxic environment.

Poor work environment and pay
Not a great organization to work for as the growth is very slow, the salary is low and the management is poor. This was true for each research lab I worked in at UBC. The workload was very high and it didn't make sense because the salary was so low. The only good thing was that UBC had great benefits, but at a certain point, you have to get more out of a job than just that.

mundane work, zero opportunity for advancement. Golden handcuffs, sadly
an administrative role at UBC is for people who have zero ambition, who crave security and are not concerned about the poverty-level salary. Too many unionized employees at UBC (CUPE) who are lazy. THe roles here require zero creativity, and there is no incentive to work hard

Miss led
Was under the impression that it was a full time job, but after starting it turned out to be part time. Work for a full year and still no benefits. So mislead.
