    I have been working at University of Calgary full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    University environment, happy/positive atmosphere, decent pay and good benefits. Union has a real voice.

    Cons

    Spending cuts by the new UCP government have led to some positions being cut and lay off's are a reality, some dept's hit worse than others. Downside to unions, some take advantage and are dead wood. Employee reviews are also not that great.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent about lay off's if you can. Other than that no complaints. Thank you for making this a nice place to work.
