I have been working at University of Wisconsin-Madison full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great environment to try new ideas, grow professionally, and in general do the best work one can possibly do.

Mechanisms keeping some people from abusing that freedom are minimal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More forceful management of problem employees would make it easier on everyone.

    Former Employee - Student Technical Support in Madison, WI

    I worked at University of Wisconsin-Madison part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Best campus in Wisconsin in terms of atmosphere and student body diversity
    - Some absolutely wonderful people to work with!
    - Decent benefits/salaries, solid flexibility... depending on the department

    Cons

    - Some people working on campus are simply there because they don't want to retire (which slows processes down, esp. when it comes to technology)
    - Certain departments have small budgets and very little flexibility
    - Few chances to move up in the workplace; this is due to budgets for the most part

    I have been working at University of Wisconsin-Madison part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My hours are completely flexible for my class schedule, I received raises twice a year, and my boss was very laid back.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics that can get in the way of getting things done quickly and efficiently.
