Great work to have during school
Being a full time student and balancing work is next to impossible. However, working with the U of S and for Huskie Athletics, they are very understanding and make it possible for you to earn some work experience and pay to help sustain your daily student life.

Used to be fantastic
The UofS is struggling with financial issues and management leadership that has decreased the ability of employees to remain effective. There is no longer a clear culture of understanding roles. It's still a beautiful campus with good benefits.

Good place to work for
The pay is good, management is good. Hours are only during the day and evening. The only issue is that if you have a class during the day then it can be hard to work there.

Overall, good job. Not many opportunities for advancement or good benefits, and sometimes working with others in the Department was challenging. Would recommend however.

Stimulating Environment
Hard working community. Long term conditions unknown as I work as a contractor. The work requires an interesting integration of stakeholders, students and practitioners.

Good opportunities for students
There are good opportunities for current students to gain research experience working with their professors and the pay is pretty good, too. The work can be physically demanding at times, but it depends on the area of research you work in.

Old School
-Large work Hierarchy .
-Admin support high level,

-Levels of Management

-Low salary

The work environment is a nice community base, working on indigenizing. But as a aboriginal employee your meant to feel like its not a right but a privilege to be employed by the university.

Good university that offers a great learning experience.
Engineering requires a tremendous amount of time and effort. This greatly affects work life balance. Additionally, you have to pay to be in school, so that is a definite con.
Pros
Getting a Degree
Cons
Long Hours, Expensive

Good workplace
Vibrant workplace. Great benefits. Lots of politics and mismanagement. Not as diverse as it should be. Progress is difficult for young "non-local" professionals without "connections".
Pros

Cons
Traditional hierarchical management

highly currupted
Highly corrupted Senior Administration. Lots of politics. Most of the faculty members are there to pursue their salary. I do not perceived any ethical maturity from most of the faculty members.

Fallen from grace
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.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Scattershot management

World-class
There is a not a better place to be in Canada if you want to work/study Computer Science. The facilities are modern and the instructors/staff are some of the most intelligent people you will ever come across.
Pros
Good salary, modern facilities, amazing campus, great camaraderie
Cons
Can be difficult to strike work-life balance

fun and productive
i have been an RA for two years and its been an adventure the only problem is that the pay is low compare to the work you do. i believe that if the pay is increased the job will be worth going for.

Work alone from home mostly
It is a good place, although my job is only on a winter term basis but if you were to get employment in another area there are lots of opportunity to grow. They pay good living wages and offer lots of support.

I mark other students assignments so my work is done from home on my computer.

Good place for extra money
This a good place for Undergrads or graduate students to make a bit of extra money. It allows you to tackle some challenges you may not have confronted before.

Great environment - great people
The working environment in Usask was stellar. The people were friendly and you got the feeling that they actually cared about the staff. Unfortunately, due to budgetary cuts they had to cut many of my friends (which didn't matter to me as I was already leaving for an internship).
Pros
Great people - Good benefits
