    I worked at University of Alberta for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible working hours. Friendly working environment. It is a good place to consolidate and expand your knowledge and research skills.

    Cons

    Small city and winter is too long. The economy mainly depends on the oil and mining industry, not many career opportunities (especially research opportunities) in the neighborhood for graduates in other majors.
