Can be really good, and can be horrible
Faculty (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 28 mai 2019
Hard to rate the whole institution as it depends on the department for which a person is working. Art Department and Faculty of Education - excellent experience. Administration and Library - some places - horrible experiences. My own experience and my friends experiences from different departments:
Many great employees overworked - doing the job of two people but being paid for one position. Many great managers. At the same time, there are a few offices where managers seem unqualified, or struggling with some issues, and creating a very stressful and hostile environment. And it is a permanent feature.
The most enjoyable part of my jobs at the UofC - working with students and many amazing co-workers. The hardest part - dealing with, the mentioned above, people who abuse their power. They have similar to Trump's personality and attitude. However, we, co-workers, supported one another during tough times. And we are part of the workplace culture.
Everything that relates to supporting our students. Great relationships with co-workers.
Sick atmosphere in some places.
