Good benefits for full-timers. I was full-time but on a temporary, seasonal basis, so I didn't get those benefits.
Coworkers are generally friendly. Pay is competitive, but not amazing. They rarely ever want you putting in more than 40h/week to pay overtime, so it offers a good work/life balance.
Office gossip can get bad. Just starting off, the benefits/vacation/salary aren't that great - it takes time to move up the ranks. There really isn't any way to fast-track this movement... you get an annual review and that's pretty much your only opportunity to demonstrate what you're worth and demand more for your abilities.
Advice to Management
Everyone is friendly, pay/benefits are good - but not great. If you want to keep Madison's top talent, you have to be prepared to offer more.
Getting an Interview

- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at UW Medical Foundation (Madison, WI) in April 2015.
I applied online, and had a very general phone interview with an HR person, who simply covered what the company does and asked questions about my background. This was basically a phone screen.
After that, I moved onto a phone interview with the hiring manager, who asked me (somewhat repetitive of former questions) about my background, what I liked/disliked about my previous experiences, etc. It was a pretty laid-back interview. Afterwards, I got a voicemail asking to call back about scheduling an interview, but the position ended up being filled before I scheduled anything.
Overall, it seemed like a nice place to work (from the benefits packet and job description they sent me by e-mail), and the hiring manager made me feel relaxed and comfortable on the phone.
- Tell me about a time that you and another co-worker disagreed - how did you solve the issue? What was your favorite and least favorite responsibility from your last position? Etc. 1 Answer
