    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for experience in a variety of different legal fields. You will learn a lot about the topics you work on.

    Cons

    There is not always enough hours of work available. You may also not enjoy researching certain topics assigned.

    Advice to Management

    Try to ensure that employees have enough work. There are times when the workload is too small.

    Pros

    Very Organized, new equipment and good benifits

    Cons

    Near militaristic system that can be overbearing. If you get injured on the job they treat you like a criminal.

    Pros

    There is quality support and collegiality among colleagues and administration as well as opportunities to expand responsibilities and pursue projects

    Cons

    As is common in academia, the adjunct salaries are difficult to make a living off of and there isn't much room for negotiation

    Advice to Management

    Provide more stability and additional benefits to adjunct positions in order to retain and support quality instructors

  5. Marquette

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI

    I have been working at Marquette University (More than a year)

    Pros

    Marquette is positive environment and fairly collaborative. There is some insulation at Marquette from the other Wisconsin higher education financial challenges - i.e. budget cuts.

    Cons

    As with any employment, there can be challenges with workload and within any given work team. While collaborative, I think there is also a growing sense that you have to protect your time, so you don't get stretched too thin
