    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are very competitive;

    Cons

    They don't invest a lot in their employees as far as training and career advancement if you are staff.

    Advice to Management

    Please think about more training and education opportunities for staff as well as a career ladder.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really like the people I work with. The benefits are good and great vacation time for salaried staff.

    Cons

    I don't get the sense that I will have much opportunity for upward mobility. Problematic employees are often given too many chances to shape up.

    Advice to Management

    Really look to promoting from within. Also, market increases should be a common occurrence. Research coordinators are being contacted by outside agencies offering higher pay creating more turnover.

    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job stability, good (but declining) health coverage. Excellent research facilities.

    Cons

    Highly inbred academic environment. Some departments are staffed mainly by faculty who did all their training right here. Many, many underperforming staff in administrative and other support positions (even lab research personnel) are retained despite embarrassingly low productivity and incompetence.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt some rigorous standards for performance and abandon the non-stop chanting about diversity. Stop promoting every faculty failure to a newly-created deanlet position - terminate a few people and some of the mediocre faculty will step it up, if they can.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Alot of variety of duties - no day was ever the same. The benefits once were good but they took alot of that away.

    Cons

    I worked very hard as others with the same title did not. As my day was always non-stop busy with duties, others sat around alot or passed off their work. If manager liked that group, they got away with it consistently.

    Advice to Management

    Start managing ALL your employees and stop picking on the ones who truly DO care.

    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Passionate directors, management and colleagues who foster professional growth, Ability to take on new tasks to broaden exposure, Excellent benefits package (PTO, retirement & insurance), Academic/research environment is empowering

    Cons

    Bureaucratic structure can sometimes inhibit processes from moving as smoothly as they could, Compensation is lower than local competition, Some technologies used are outdated

    Advice to Management

    I suggest the implementation of new systems in order to allow processes to flow more freely and as direclty as possible, minimizing the number of individuals that are required to participate. Continue to empower these individuals to have task ownership and allow them to help develop new methods to continuously improve operations.
