Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Madison, WI

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

Pros

Excellent access to top notch researchers and resources. The facilities are state of the art. Campus is accessible and beautiful. Staff and managers are flexible, encouraging, and supportive.

Cons

It is a bureaucratic organization so many of the administrative processes are slow and cumbersome. The university was recently hit with state policies that increased out of pocket health care costs for most employess.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to be more flexible.
