It was an immense privilege to work at UBC, in fact it was the best place I have ever worked. Until you are diagnosed with a mental illness. The University speaks highly about providing support to students struggling with a mental illness, and leads Canadian universities in the services provided. Unfortunately, this is not the same for staff. After a diagnosis of a mental illness and a short leave from the University, I found, I had to seek out my own treatment, using my own funding and when I was better able to cope and return, I found my role reduced and changed to the point of termination. It was an amazing place to work, but beware it has a dark side and despite, what it may claim, it does not make individuals struggling with a mental illness feel welcome, and will move to remove them from the University.
Advance Labs with an excellent opportunity to learn the state of the art technology. Good place for making good academic connections and beautiful campus
Very Expensive place to live
Large organization with outdated processes, making improvements by implementing a new ERP system. Slow to change but good salaries, benefits, work/life balance.
they take care of their employees, making sure everyone takes their breaks and they even look for one worker if not in the lunch room, supervisors are helpful.
One of the worst place to work. Never Join UBC, Especially IT. UBC IT is one of the places where you can see people doing politics to the core. Most of the permanents are DOS-based old school IT guys. They never updated their knowledge or willingness to learn. If you are a contractor, Never ever think of Joining UBC.
Closer to Sea and Beaches
Politics, No Corporate Culture

The job pays very well, offers a flexible schedule allowing for travel during your time off. Many employees are students as well so it makes for a great company culture and many of the employees are now my good friends. Opportunity for advancement within the company, but not necessarily with your future.
Company culture, Good hours
Distance between managers and employees
perfect job for Msc and Ph.D. students but time-consuming and low salary. It could be better if they raise the salary and give more opportunity to graduate students
working with first year students
