    I have been working at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Since it is a technical institute, the summers are very quiet and slow. Good amount of vacation time

    Cons

    Management! They have been adding layers of management over the years. It is at the point where nothing gets done. So-so pay. Management gets nice bonuses, workers get year after year of 0% wage increases.
