You get a PhD at the end
Ph.D. program in the MIE department of UofT is challenging and rewarding at the same time. Working with some of the best professors and researchers in the field was a great opportunity and I would recommend it to anyone who is willing to learn and grow.

Teaching is fun, grading is the hardest part.
The hardest part of being a teaching assistant is grading assignments and tests, usually due to the sheer number of assignments and tests that need to be graded in a first year course. Some instructors provide the teaching assistants with a rubric for grading, which is very helpful.

Academic Work Culture
My experience at U of T is varied. Each Faculty acts like a different business that all adhere to the central policies of the university. So the work culture can vary greatly. However, in my experience so far people seem to be on the sensitive side when it comes to approaching issues and topics. Change does not happen quickly and when it does it's a house cleaning. I would highly recommend becoming familiar with policies and getting credentials to work here.

Great place to collaborate with like minded researchers
The Biology Department has a lot of capable researchers who are well known and respected in their fields. It is a difficult and stressful environment at times, but the overall experience is phenomenal.

Great place and great people
Worked with a close-knit group that supported each other. Very busy times created some stress but overall a manageable workload. The hardest part of the job was dealing with student issues, which can be emotionally draining.

Great place if you're willing to work hard
My particular experience at UofT was, in hindsight, excellent. I think one of the best and most challenging things about UofT is that it's highly competitive. This hump is slightly daunting in the beginning but ultimately the competitive aspect pushes you forward in the long run. UofT is also rich with inter-faculty and inter-organizational collaboration which has the ability to open up an immense number of research possibilities. I couldn't have been happier working and studying there.

Grad student
I started my master’s degree in a neuroscience lab. My supervisor was verbally abusive, unsupportive, and did not provide me with the training necessary to do my work.

Good starter position
Fantastic place to work in general, but salaries are difficult unless you are part of the faculty or research-associate level. It was difficult to move off soft grant-money for covering salaries and onto a permanent situation with the university itself.

Learning experience to last a lifetime
I was able to work with a TA I admired very highly, which made the process even more enjoyable. It allowed me to utilize WestLaw, which I would not have been able to use had it not been for this position.
