I worked at UW-La Crosse part-time for less than a year
Pros – You can work at school during the day, and in between your classes. If you are a busy student, this is an ideal way to earn extra cash.
Cons – You may have a hard time getting a lot of hours and it is also frustrating as you do not get paid very well.
Advice to Senior Management – Take more advantage of having an assistant and try to make it a learning experience for them as well.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at UW-La Crosse
Pros – Work on a campus and get to interact with the students. If you do not like your job or the people you work with in one area, you can easily find an opening and apply in another.
Cons – No education reimbursement. Really? This is what you are offering. How can your staff effectively do there job when they cannot use the services you are selling? Identity crisis. Trying to be everything and not knowing what they are good at. Too many politics and complacent employees that are just there because of benefits. High turn-a-round. Hiring processes are ineffective. Non-transparency.
Advice to Senior Management – Do the job that you were hired to do and sometimes that means you have to make hard decisions and rock the boat.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at UW-La Crosse full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – academic freedom, even after recent cuts still a good benefit package
Cons – Low pay - long hours;
No job security from semester to semester;
Only getting to teach the classes no one else (the tenure and tenure track faculty) wants to do.
State government can (and does) modify existing employment contracts, effectively lowering salary and benefit packages without the "need" for the employee to renegotiate, or even resign contracts.

I have been working at UW-La Crosse full-time
Pros – Good health care and lots of vacation
Cons – -Dealing with Faculty who feel entitled and expect you to bow down to them. They complain about pay when they are making almost a 100k and get 4 months off a year.
- You never get raises unless you are faculty
Advice to Senior Management – Pay your back end staff what their worth otherwise your entitled faculty wouldn't be able to do their job.
