    I worked at Medical College of Wisconsin

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Wonderful research and clinical experts, but lacking resources

    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Fellow

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

    Pros

    Faculty have diverse areas of expertise and are open to collaboration across disciplines; wonderful access to medical care through MCW-affiliated providers; organization is always growing and improving

    Cons

    Some research resources are lacking (journal article access, etc) compared with larger research institutions; not all research centers valued equally by the administration; health insurance coverage for non-MCW providers is insufficient

    Current Employee - Financial Analyst in Milwaukee, WI

    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    Some technologies used are outdated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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great healthcare benefits,Great 401K options

    Cons

    Low Salary, no raises given only cost of living increase at most. Work-Life Balance was poor. The better you were at your job, the more you were expected to do without any compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote those who are excellent workers. Pay people what they are worth. Get rid of the "rotten apples" who bring down the whole team. Promote a "team environment" and make the workplace more fun.

    there is no 401k matching for postdoctoral fellows, and depending on the lab you are in, you may not get the pay increase that is recommended by NIH.

    Some good reasons to work here compared to a traditional university are free parking, good insurance, and an in house cafeteria.
