    ProsStudents are well prepared, given many oppotunities to present research, programs to encourage career choices and career development are well ogranized , encouraged to publish at least twice in high impact journals

    former EE of mcw

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe Dr 's I worked fore ere great. Very respectful.

    Consmanagement sucked, was accused of things that I didn't do , and told I didn't do things I did do. You can't go to management about supervisors or you will be dismissed , They don't even investigate the complaint .just terminate you for complaining.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake all complaints seriously, and talk to all witnesses involved.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible place to work (This opinion relates to IS department under Finance & Admin only)

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey pay relatively well. Work life balance is good.

    Cons- Lack of integrity (The CIO was also the vendor!), No professionalism - Internal finance customers who have no regard for systems and processes. Customers especially from the Controller's office are extremely inconsiderate and rude. The work place is full of rumors of inappropriate behaviour.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more process driven, respect employees and be a more ethical place to work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Relaxed working environment, limited career advance opportunaties

    Research Scientist II (Current Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsAs a regular staff (not faculty, not medical professionals), working for the college gives you all the perks of working for an academic institution. In general, the working environment is relaxed. Most of your work days are not intense. You do not have too many deadlines to catch. You can pretty much work with your own pace as long as you complete all you assigned task to the managers satisfaction. Health insurance plan is decent, you get to pay very little copay.

    ConsThe whole college evolves around physicians. As such, the college does not provide much career advancement opportunities for regular staffs. Even you get above average job performance review, you are not promoted unless there is 'quota'/budget available. Physicians can take any classes offered by the college for free without any approval from any one, yet the same benefit are not offered to staff.
    Don't expect much about your salary or employee benefits other than the health insurance. In the median to low range of the market.
