    Pros

    Great learning atmosphere for those who need to gain experience.

    Cons

    Difficult to communicate with administration- they hear you but do not listen. You must always stick up for yourself because they do not have your back. Experienced employees leave because they are not competitively valued.

    Advice to Management

    Take your own advice and actually act on it.

    Pros

    Get your foot in the door of clinical research. Professional environment. People care about what they do.

    Cons

    Salary is low, not much room for advancement. Benefits aren't what they used to be. High stress environment. Frequent turnaround, workload always changing.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees

    Pros

    This is a great place to work with great benefits. The managers in my department are great and let you do your job without micromanagement.

    Cons

    The con is the pay. MCW pays well below what I would be making elsewhere with my experience and eduction

    Advice to Management

    Please go back to running MCW as a research institution and not a company for profit.

    Pros

    Benefits are very competitive;

    Cons

    They don't invest a lot in their employees as far as training and career advancement if you are staff.

    Advice to Management

    Please think about more training and education opportunities for staff as well as a career ladder.

    Pros

    I really like the people I work with. The benefits are good and great vacation time for salaried staff.

    Cons

    I don't get the sense that I will have much opportunity for upward mobility. Problematic employees are often given too many chances to shape up.

    Advice to Management

    Really look to promoting from within. Also, market increases should be a common occurrence. Research coordinators are being contacted by outside agencies offering higher pay creating more turnover.

    Pros

    Job stability, good (but declining) health coverage. Excellent research facilities.

    Cons

    Highly inbred academic environment. Some departments are staffed mainly by faculty who did all their training right here. Many, many underperforming staff in administrative and other support positions (even lab research personnel) are retained despite embarrassingly low productivity and incompetence.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt some rigorous standards for performance and abandon the non-stop chanting about diversity. Stop promoting every faculty failure to a newly-created deanlet position - terminate a few people and some of the mediocre faculty will step it up, if they can.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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