    Pros

    Overall some of the best people I have met in life.

    Cons

    Like most say. There are managerial roles where the thinking of the 1940's is a ok mindset. Those bad seeds protect and stick together. Human resources will only step in and help if they have violated your human rights. They won't even allow you to prove your right. Really sad because I actually would love to stay here. Those bad seeds along with HR left a bad taste with me. Ruined my thoughts of this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Longevity doesn't mean someone is doing there job correctly. Check out the people that have been sitting and coasting to retirement. It's not right how some employees are treated.

    Pros

    Senior leadership is on the right track. responsive to national trends, and a culture of collaboration that continues to expand.

    Cons

    still need to change some of the old culture of a few "good old boys"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you have a lot of talent in this institution, don't loose sight of them because you are too busy watching only your top five faculty. Most people here support your work and leadership, carry on.

    Cons

    The HR department is horrible, turn over is incredibly high in that department and the leadership team including the directors in HR treat people very poorly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need all new leadership in HR, these are the people that should be setting standards for the rest of the org and they have trouble maintaining a staff because of how they treat them.

    Pros

    Good benefits and the facilty is nice. Direct supervisors are good for the most part.

    Cons

    Human Resources is a disaster and should be avoided at all costs. Leadership needs to be put in line. There's too many managers and not enough staff. When one of my managers left they were replaced by 3 new people who supposedly still can't get the job done and considering hiring a 4th person. Really hard to move up within the college. Pay is below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on management not staff. There's no need to take doctors that you're trying to recruit out for $50-$100 a plate dinners; they'll come based on the institution not the quality of steak you bought them. Listen to staff employees when they complain about a manager; when a department burns through 6-7 people for one position in 5 years or less there may be an issue.

    Pros

    It is the only one private medical college in Wisconsin. Many professional people work here, and you can learn a lot from them.

    Cons

    I do not know if there are any downsides in this college. Cuz I really have a great time here.
