Researcher | Burnaby, BC | May 16, 2020
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.

Manager, Return to Work and Disability Management | British Columbia | Nov. 21, 2019
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 Assistant | Burnaby, BC | Jan. 7, 2017
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.
