    Pros

    Good company, ok pay and benefits, company is good but working in HR is awful.

    Cons

    HR leaders are the worst. There's no communication, hidden agendas/poor ethics, no support for employees and leaders have no backbone. Lots of politics and favoritism. Employees are always working late with no balance or help. You can't talk to mgmt because they won't listen. There is always job postings because they can't keep anybody.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to notice HR's turnover and make changes. Mgmt has no clue how to manage people or a dept because they are too far removed and they won't take input. HR should start stop blaming departing employees for being unhappy and start actually listening

    Pros

    Great learning atmosphere for those who need to gain experience.

    Cons

    Difficult to communicate with administration- they hear you but do not listen. You must always stick up for yourself because they do not have your back. Experienced employees leave because they are not competitively valued.

    Advice to Management

    Take your own advice and actually act on it.

    Pros

    One of the few sources for academic research jobs in the area. In general, the scientists, students, and staff are stimulating and fun to work with. I've been lucky to work in a fairly laid-back lab with amazing people that I enjoy working and socializing with.Good benefits, but deductubles are rising...

    Cons

    One of the few sources for academic research jobs in the area. Low pay. Administration penetrates the deepest crevices and lurks around every corner. Redundancies in administration seem just fine, while lab staff are entirely expendable... grant or no grant. Speaking of grants and contracts, our lab has been making an effort for the past three years to spend all the money allocated to supplies, while our yearly raise is whittled down to almost nothing. What else: people are very cliquy and socializing with groups outside your lab can be difficult, the cafeteria is over-priced and uses way too many exclamation points in its menu to compensate for its chow, and the parking situation, already annoying enough, is being shrunk down even more in favor of MDs who pay the monthly physician's parking fee.

    Advice to Management

    Stop investing so much in overhead and PR and treat your staff better, and with more respect, (An administrative assistant may not know how to perform science as well as a microbiologist, you know). Stop hiring so many administrative assistants and allow PIs to hire more staff and give greater incentives, one admin III is more than enough to make the weekly pot-luck flier.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work with great benefits. The managers in my department are great and let you do your job without micromanagement.

    Cons

    The con is the pay. MCW pays well below what I would be making elsewhere with my experience and eduction

    Advice to Management

    Please go back to running MCW as a research institution and not a company for profit.

    Pros

    Balanced work and life environment. Good health insurance coverage and benefit package. Flexible working hours. Great collaboration experience with colleagues. Especially great for new grads.

    Cons

    Poor career advancement and salary promotion from the position. Too much micro-management and less respects from the leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Expect the supervisor to encourage its employee instead of push them without respects.
