Worse place I've ever been employed
Horrible nepotism. If you aren't a child of an employee or married to one... forget it. The management skills are questionable. They shift people who are unfit to supervise from one area to another. And God help you if you tell the truth.

Horrific Supervisor in Sciences
Supervisor would frequently berate me for making a mistake. Nice in person, however they could be very nasty on email. Instead of mentoring and helping guide and teach they just left you without guidance. I had to set up my own times to meet with them instead of them making time for their student.

Good diversity and inclusion
Worked as a TA here. The professors and program directors are very nice and value students' contributions. The pay and scholarships are enough for supporting ourselves.

Recruitment/retention below par
UVic pays below national standard.Do little to retain or encourage retention of staff once recruited.Pride selves on being budget minded but one of only universities in Canada that doesn't allow staff to audit courses or have lower rates to take academic or continuing ed courses.Has great Business school but HR practices are stuck in the dark ages.
