    I worked at Medical College of Wisconsin

    Pros

    Interesting work with research and patient care as well as educating the next generation of physicians and researchers and health care professionals.

    Cons

    In the past the excellent benefits off set the low pay but recent changes have slowly eroded the benefit package while retaining the low compensation base. In addition, the decentralized organization allows for department administration to unevenly administer corporate policy.

    Pros

    Pretty much the best place for translational research in the Milwaukee area. Benefits are good.

    I'm actually satisfied enough to not be able to think of any cons.

    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 Management

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

    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from moving as smoothly as they could, Compensation is lower than local competition, Some technologies used are outdated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 Management

    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.


  11. Wonderful research and clinical experts, but lacking resources

    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
