    Pros

    Flexibility (some), good benefits, I honestly have been very disapointed since I started here.

    Cons

    Depending on the department you work in, you could have entirely different experiences. Every department is it's own silo with its own managment. My department in particular is extremely dysfunctional and HR refuses to step in and fix anything unless it is a legal issue. Turnover doesn't seem to bother anyone. Basic HR policies aren't followed yet when I brought this up with HR they didn't care. There is no leadership in my department and employees seem to do whatever they want with no repercussions. Very difficult to move up the career laddar or into another department. Will be looking to move on ASAP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold management accountable. Take the staff survey seriously when there are complaints. If a department isn't functioning as it should, MCW should take action. When an employee voices major concerns, listen. Unless you are a part of management, there is no staff voice. Stop hiring high level positions without performing thorough evaluations/interviews. The department I work in has zero management which should be evaluated. Many wasted resources that should be questioned/evaluated.

    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.
