Does Athabasca University offer sponsored degrees?

Pros

AU offers remote work opportunities, union positions, a good research centre, and a solid IT infrastructure.

Cons

With AU being an academic institution, they have a strong preference for employees to have advanced or graduate degrees, regardless of whether employees require these credentials to do their job. Considering this high expectation, AU should pay higher salaries for these roles.

Advice to Management

$17.50 hourly as a researcher is too low a wage for the skills, education, and experience researchers bring to the table. Please consider raising this wage.
