University of Saskatchewan was my vert first workplace in Canada. I could learn a lot of new technologies which greatly increased my abilities and knowledge about the research I was involved in. It was a nice place to work with such talented and passionated people. I highly recommend it!
I really like everything about it. My typical workday as a Ph.D. student is doing research and running experiments in the lab and on my computer. Starting at 8:30 am, Lunchtime is around 12 and it takes almost 40 minutes and going home around 4:30 pm.
Busy lab and hard to focus
The U of S is a very relaxed yet structured environment to work in featuring many skilled and knowledgeable professors and staff. Every department has a semi different culture for the workplace but as many of the staff come from the prairies, and those who do not are influenced by prairie students, everyone has a very down to Earth demeanor that is comforting to work alongside.
Busy office coordinating 3 primary sites for teaching plus two subsidiary sites to video conference students to the college for classes. Very good staff/faculty relationships. Hardest part of the job is adjusting to a new boss/dean every five years. Best part is my co-workers. We support each other through some pretty heavy workloads/situations
Parking is not great

they dont pay very well, training not great. most employees have been there for many years and are set in their ways. Not open to new comers. Great events on campus, poor benefitd beautiful setting once had acces to gyn not they look that away
poor pay and benefits
Meeting new people from diverse backgrounds, ever changing, ever learning so empowering. Space to learn and grow with the continuous advancing environment. You can move forward if you choose and you are free to implement new ideas.
Day off every alternate week
Fun place to work, loved the people who worked the summer position as well HOWEVER. The higher ups are nothing but manipulative and terrible at organizing their staff. Also most other staff members in other departments are constantly out to get others in trouble. anything from taking a water break will be photographed on someones cell phone and sent to the boss and you will be disciplined, still don't know what those people do for work because they seem to do nothing but sit and take pictures of us all day. So again great place to meet people, terrible dysfunctional atmosphere.
decent pay, the odd free lunch
terrible atmosphere, constant backstabbing, dysfunctional higher up employees
This used to be a great place to work however years of management upheaval, provincial budget cuts and an ill-prepared shift in the direction of the institution has taken its toll. It will be years before the recent turmoil settles (assuming future decisions are made with more forethought). This is not a well-supported and high-performing place to be at the moment. The post-secondary sector has always been unique, but those looking to join to this institution from private industry should do so with eyes wide open.
