Frustrating trying to get time off that has been earned when there is not enough coverage for vacations.

I have been working at UW Medical Foundation full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat people to work with, opportunity to make a difference in someone's life through better health care and education.

ConsMid-level management not always as professional as I have been accustomed to in past work experiences. Difficult to get clear direction on expectations, depends on whom you are talking with at the moment.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease size of float pool so that people are able to use their vacation time.

Great work-life balance awareness

Database Report Developer (Current Employee)
Madison, WI

I have been working at UW Medical Foundation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsOne of the main benefits was that everyone that worked there treated each other as humans. Politics was mostly non-existent within the group.

Very family friendly, and flexible working times.

Interesting challenges, and a great freedom for an individual to introduce new ideas and projects.

ConsSalaries are a bit below market for the area.

Politics in dealing with physicians can sometimes become arduous.

Little room in budget for any training beyond purchasing books.

Decent overall company to work for.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Madison, WI

I worked at UW Medical Foundation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsWonderful coworkers and great doctors. Good job satisfaction. Family type of atmosphere with other staff that promoted good friendships and lasting relations.

ConsToo much micro managing from superiors that stifled innovation and growth. A good old boys club mentality and too many of the managers appeared to be still in their cliques from High School.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that most of your staff would like to be treated with more respect. Encourage thinking outside of the proverbial box. Be more flexible with staff and their family/personal needs.

It can be rewarding, but too many senior administrators who are easily threatened and limited in the competence.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Madison, WI

I worked at UW Medical Foundation

ProsThey treat you well. Pay is good (I imagine in some areas they are very competitive, in others not so much). The ethic and missions are terrific There are some great leaders and staff.

ConsVery limited opportunities for career advancement. This is a physician dominated and controlled organization, so non-physicians are not as highly valued. While this is to be expected, too often physicians are placed in senior administrative positions and have limited skill sets outside of their medical training.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are too many holdovers from the P Plus days. Without exception these people have not grown professionally. Even the few who are competent are barely hanging on by their fingertips. The leadership structure Med School, Foundation and Hospital is inefficient. Too much power in the hands of department heads.
