    Pros

    Great learning atmosphere for those who need to gain experience.

    Cons

    Difficult to communicate with administration- they hear you but do not listen. You must always stick up for yourself because they do not have your back. Experienced employees leave because they are not competitively valued.

    Advice to Management

    Take your own advice and actually act on it.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work with great benefits. The managers in my department are great and let you do your job without micromanagement.

    Cons

    The con is the pay. MCW pays well below what I would be making elsewhere with my experience and eduction

    Advice to Management

    Please go back to running MCW as a research institution and not a company for profit.

    Pros

    Balanced work and life environment. Good health insurance coverage and benefit package. Flexible working hours. Great collaboration experience with colleagues. Especially great for new grads.

    Cons

    Poor career advancement and salary promotion from the position. Too much micro-management and less respects from the leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Expect the supervisor to encourage its employee instead of push them without respects.

    Pros

    Benefits are very competitive;

    Cons

    They don't invest a lot in their employees as far as training and career advancement if you are staff.

    Advice to Management

    Please think about more training and education opportunities for staff as well as a career ladder.

    Pros

    I really like the people I work with. The benefits are good and great vacation time for salaried staff.

    Cons

    I don't get the sense that I will have much opportunity for upward mobility. Problematic employees are often given too many chances to shape up.

    Advice to Management

    Really look to promoting from within. Also, market increases should be a common occurrence. Research coordinators are being contacted by outside agencies offering higher pay creating more turnover.

    Pros

    Job stability, good (but declining) health coverage. Excellent research facilities.

    Cons

    Highly inbred academic environment. Some departments are staffed mainly by faculty who did all their training right here. Many, many underperforming staff in administrative and other support positions (even lab research personnel) are retained despite embarrassingly low productivity and incompetence.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt some rigorous standards for performance and abandon the non-stop chanting about diversity. Stop promoting every faculty failure to a newly-created deanlet position - terminate a few people and some of the mediocre faculty will step it up, if they can.


  9. Not what it used to be.

    Pros

    Interesting work with research and patient care as well as educating the next generation of physicians and researchers and health care professionals.

    Cons

    In the past the excellent benefits off set the low pay but recent changes have slowly eroded the benefit package while retaining the low compensation base. In addition, the decentralized organization allows for department administration to unevenly administer corporate policy.


  10. Wonderful research and clinical experts, but lacking resources

    Pros

    Faculty have diverse areas of expertise and are open to collaboration across disciplines; wonderful access to medical care through MCW-affiliated providers; organization is always growing and improving

    Cons

    Some research resources are lacking (journal article access, etc) compared with larger research institutions; not all research centers valued equally by the administration; health insurance coverage for non-MCW providers is insufficient

    Pros

    Great healthcare benefits,Great 401K options

    Cons

    Low Salary, no raises given only cost of living increase at most. Work-Life Balance was poor. The better you were at your job, the more you were expected to do without any compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those who are excellent workers. Pay people what they are worth. Get rid of the "rotten apples" who bring down the whole team. Promote a "team environment" and make the workplace more fun.
