Being a CA is a lot of fun, but there is very little pay, even if residence is paid and the hours are not determined and there is very little time off.

The job was pretty boring, there was no clear room for advancement and doing the job was always harder with the instructions given by superiors. There were no benefits.

I worked with a professor in statistics. My research topic is about math, so it is not easy. My professor is a nice guy, he helped me a lot and gave me a really good salary.

The work is flexible and interesting, and the student union prevents things from going too far south if you're a graduate Teaching Assistant. However, it is almost a guarantee that you will be asked/coerced into doing unpaid overtime.

The pace is slow and very relaxed. The work is too easy, but there are other benifits: excellent work/life balance, no stress, excellent public transportation location.
Pros
easy work
Cons
boring

Working at uOttawa is nice because I can make pocket money while studying, all in one place. They are very considerate about your school schedule and are willing to work around it.

Great place to work for. The work environment is fun since it is an educational institution with students. Great view of the campus. More can be done to improve salary benefits

the coworkers are great, sometimes management is not.
The union is great and definitely provides job security for those not in management.

The benefits you receive are also quite helpful.

good place to learn and grow.
The pay is quite good but since I was on contract, did not qualify for benefits.
It gave me a great opportunity to learn and grow.

As a teaching assistant, uOttawa has been a great experience so far. I have had no trouble balancing teaching with my schoolwork. The pay is good (few hours, but that is expected). It is a nice little boost to my groceries every week.
Pros
Flexible hours, great employers and coworkers
Cons
Few hours

The University of Ottawa offers excellent employment conditions and salary. Professors are given wide latitude in the material to be covered in a given course and in their approach to teaching.

As a copy editor, I had to find my own clients. They paid only slightly above minimum wage for professional editing services at an undergraduate/masters level. Many issues arose and were never resolved by uOttawa

Worked there for several years only to get shafted 3 years before my pension. So not worth the aggravation. I'm not the only one this happened to.

Decent amount of funding and resources. Supervision good, depending on Professor. Administration horrible - slow, unresponsive. Overall good choice of institution if research topic is one of its specialties in your department.
