    I worked at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Can't work anywhere else in Wisconsin

    Cons

    The place runs like "the old boy's club" of Marquette. The sleazeballs all protect each other and single out anyone who won't conform to their wants. This atmosphere does not foster creativity or original thought. The people with real talent leave.

    Pros

    Employees are valued and professional development is encouraged. Colleagues are great people--many became good friends. My department offered workshops and learning activities weekly. I had the opportunity to attend lectures multiple times per day.
    Great benefits! Generous vacation and sick days. Great insurance.

    Cons

    The cafeteria leaves something to be desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support faculty and staff as you have been.

    I worked at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The salaries are very generous.

    Cons

    A very negative culture that is based on a discriminatory hierarchy. Unless you are a physician, you are perceived as being "less than and lower on the medical food chain." Fear pervades the place and questioning authority ends quite often in dismissal. In general, they do not practice what they espouse.

    Former Employee - Patient Service Representative  in  Milwaukee, WI
    Former Employee - Patient Service Representative in Milwaukee, WI

    I worked at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Better benefits than most comparable facilities.

    Cons

    Management team is quite the bully. Demeaning and uncaring behavior which seems to go unnoticed even with supporting evidence and documentation. Difficult to advance or promote unless management really likes you for reasons beyond the scope of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with the same courtesy and respect you are given. Employees are human with feelings. Appreciate those who work hard and go above and beyond. Don't just say it's expected or bully those who may been seriously ill or injured and what comes around goes around.

    Former Employee - Laboratory Office Assistant  in  Milwaukee, WI

    Pros

    Access to Children's Hospital cafeteria for discounted food. Access to free weight room.

    Cons

    Data entry was horrible, but that only has to do with the position, not MCW as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More oversight over projects to make sure that they are being completed in a timely manner.
