Productive and fun working with the highest level of experienced team
Work at SFU can be divided into two phases: work with undergrad students and work with the research team. Both situations are productive and fun because in one phase my personal knowledge should be transferred to a group of students and in another phase I should learn from other scientists. in latter phase I learn machine learning and digital soil mapping. My supervisors are well experienced and I really enjoy working with them. The best part of the job in the first phase is to see students' satisfaction and respect. In the second phase the best time is when I overcome a difficult scientific situation such as writing a successful script.
we worked as a team to help professor conduct analysis of the finance and accounting industry. It taught me a lot to how to work in a team and how to express you ideas.
Productive and Fun
SFU Media and Communications Groups has a great dynamic, and it is great working for them. It is very collaborative and assisting each other is highly encouraged. I have seen my skills improve and I can't wait for more! :)
It was fun. I learned a lot from this program.
I learned how to communicate well with collegues and children. The most enjoyable part of the job are to develop the skills of classroom management, organization and leadership.
It is a good experience with this univeristy. It is very remarkable to get educated here

Ambiente de trabajo muy pesado
La cultura en el departamento de recursos humanos deja mucho que desear. Mala administración sin metas y objetivos claros. Los equipos del departamento están altamente segregados y hay poca colaboración entre equipos.
La directora del departamento de Recursos Humanos no cuenta con un titulo universitario y así mismo desprecia a quién los tiene entre sus subordinados.
La oportunidad de acenso está limitada a personalidades afines y no a metas logradas ni a capacidad superior laboral.
Teaching students and making them understand felt good.
I TA'd for a whole bunch of courses and it was always fun working with professors and students. Teaching students helps you learn a lot of the minute details which you often miss when you are just studying on your own. It was a good practise for my coding skills.
