Former Contractor - Program Assistant - Student Contract in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
Former Contractor - Program Assistant - Student Contract in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I worked at University of Ottawa as a contractor (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.

    Current Employee - Assistant Professor in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at University of Ottawa full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Centrally located, Decent physical facilities, opportunity to learn English or French as a second language

    Cons

    Biligualism acts as an obstacle for professional growth. Most gatekeeper staff is French and despite their ability to help everyone, response time is slower if you can't communicate with them in French.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the need for bilingualism on a case-by-case basis.
