Former Employee - Program Assistant - Student Contract  in  Ottawa, ON
Former Employee - Program Assistant - Student Contract in Ottawa, ON

I worked at University of Ottawa as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Great flexibility of tasks, autonomy and role. You have the opportunity to work on many projects outside your job description if you show an interest.

Cons

Too many employees are French only, discouraging to Canadians. A lot of red tape decisions even for the smallest approval of procurement or sourcing.

    Part TIme Professor

    Current Employee - Professor  in  Ottawa, ON
    Current Employee - Professor in Ottawa, ON

    I have been working at University of Ottawa part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good facilities for teaching, including WiFI and wired classroom. Good student body, that seems engaged.

    Cons

    The administration seems to take professors, especially part-time professors for granted. They expect the part-time professors to do much organization and scheduling and do not seem to respect that these individuals have full-time jobs. As a whole, the administration seems to favour French as the language of choice so English speaking profs seem at a disadvantage. The reliance on web based email is also frustrating.
