    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin

    Pros

    I work in research so I am not sure this would apply to a lot of people but I find the faculty there very supportive and open to new ideas

    Cons

    They have high expectations on your work ethic, which can be a good thing.

    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very nice co-workers, a supportive department, generous time off, and pretty nice benefits.

    Cons

    Low pay, some departments(not mine) show favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust the current pay scale. It is not competitive. It used to be a few years ago because the benefits made up for the low pay. Now the benefits aren't as great as they used to be and no one has seen an increase in pay to make up for that.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Medical College of Wisconsin

    Pros

    Interesting work with research and patient care as well as educating the next generation of physicians and researchers and health care professionals.

    Cons

    In the past the excellent benefits off set the low pay but recent changes have slowly eroded the benefit package while retaining the low compensation base. In addition, the decentralized organization allows for department administration to unevenly administer corporate policy.
