    I worked at Medical College of Wisconsin

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Financial Analyst in Milwaukee, WI

    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time (more than 3 years)

    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    Some technologies used are outdated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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are well organized postdoc educational opportunities, and as a postdoc you get 15 vacation days and 9 sick days.

    Cons

    there is no 401k matching for postdoctoral fellows, and depending on the lab you are in, you may not get the pay increase that is recommended by NIH.
