Got a good variety of work to do. Upper management was respectful and never felt overbearing. Lots of extra activities and initiatives provided by weekly employee e-mail newsletter. Good student support structure.

The work and co-workers are great! , Pay and benefits are decent. This could be an amazing workplace, however... It's sickening how top heavy this organization is. There are way too many managers and they just keep dreaming up more and more management or supervisor positions. They also seem to be really good at making poor decisions, wasting money, destroying worker moral, lowering efficiency.Take management out of the equation and this place becomes an amazing place to work!!

The staff were a cohesive group. The structure as a part time immunization nurse worked well. The autonomy was appreciated. The scheduling coordinator was very good at her job and tried to keep everyone’s needs in mind. I was surprised to see 2 managers let go in my time there.

Nothing bad to say other than long term employees are out of touch with reality and shouldn’t complain as much as they do. Benefits and pay are excellent.

Was only here for 4 months but I enjoyed it. Ran into the odd big ego government worker but for the most part everyone was friendly and pleasant to work with

Great pay, days feel long even though its usually less than 40 hours a week of work. Given good projects to work on but I would have liked it more if they had a more fun team environment.

Terrible work environment. They like to keep everyone bubble wrapped. They don’t want anyone thinking for themselves or having an opinion. Too many managers and supervisors for so few workers. Management out of touch with operations side of things. No room for advancement. No permanent positions. Contract to contract. Do not waste your time.
Pros
Good hours.
Cons
Everything else

Lots to learn, great budget and finance experience. Long periods of very slow paced work. Outdated programs used for many tasks. Culture was very friendly and welcoming. Hardest part of the job was finding things to do during slow periods.

The culture tolerates harassment and the leadership is aware of it. Confidentiality, integrity and respect are not leveraged as per the organization's values.
