    My experience at the Medical College of Wisconsin has been mostly positive.

    Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsSome good reasons to work here compared to a traditional university are free parking, good insurance, and an in house cafeteria.

    ConsConducting research at the Medical college can be extra difficult because of the lack of hard money.

    Great place to work

    Research Technologist I (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsOrganizational values are superb. This is a tremendous place to work. Very high level of professionalism.

    ConsIn all honesty I am not able to think of one down side to this particular employer. Supervisors are top shelf and very helpful. I look forward to work every day.

    Overall good place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsThe staff and other employees that I worked with were great, the surroundings and facilities are magnificent, there was also a good balance of independence and supervision

    ConsSome of these were probably because the position I was working was a summer college job. The parking for non-senior employees was very far away from the buildings that I worked in, and the pay wasn't spectacular (but it was just a summer job). Those were the only two things that bugged me though.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A good place to work...unless you work in HR

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsGood benefits, good people in most areas of the org, good leaders and good technology

    ConsThe HR department is horrible, turn over is incredibly high in that department and the leadership team including the directors in HR treat people very poorly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou really need all new leadership in HR, these are the people that should be setting standards for the rest of the org and they have trouble maintaining a staff because of how they treat them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It is wonderful to work here. And Everyone is nice to you no matter where you come from.

    Research Scholar (Current Employee) Wauwatosa, WI

    ProsIt is the only one private medical college in Wisconsin. Many professional people work here, and you can learn a lot from them.

    ConsI do not know if there are any downsides in this college. Cuz I really have a great time here.

    A great place to work in Milwaukee with a high character workforce

    Clinical Research Assistant (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsHigh character workforce, great location, complexity of projects, ample opportunity to challenge yourself at different aspects

    ConsSalary not always aligned with national averages, opportunity for career growth is limited, Milwaukee not the greatest city to live in

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreating more opportunity for growth will increase the number of qualified people who stay at MCW long-term

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
