Great place for research
Great place for academic research and education. U of T has a wide range of courses and research you can choose from. Pick a major and project that interests you and way to go!

Good environment to work and can be fun
Worked as a work-study student during the summer. The process was pretty chill and not much stress. Work hours were manageable while taking a course during the summer.

Good overall experience. Allows room for growth, and opportunities if you can identify them. Lots of great coworkers and interesting projects being worked on.

Great place to work and advance
University of Toronto is one of the best places to work and advance, combined with various opportunities for explore new areas, learn new subjects, and associate with professors and students.

Benefits and pension are a bonus but generally toxic workplace
Salary, benefits and pension combine to make this a good place to work from a financial perspective. That being said, if you value being heard, recognition for your effort, positive workplace interaction, support from senior administration, work/life balance, etc., look elsewhere. Despite claiming to support work/life balance and flexibility, the university will find whatever loopholes it can to enforce generic policies on all staff regardless of their actual duties. The bottom line for them is getting their international student tuition money. HR screens applicants for specific attributes and does not recognize transferable skills. Heavy emphasis on having a PhD for roles that don't really require it, limiting career growth opportunities for people who have been in the workforce a long time and can't go back to school.
