    A great institution

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsManagement. Some of the best management I have ever worked under. Great to work with. A very positive work environment. Excellent benefits for full time employees.

    ConsSuffers from the bureaucracy inherent in any public sector institution. A lot of things that should be simple, fast, or obvious get slowed down by an inflated infrastructure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue being helpful and understanding with your employees. Recognize and appreciate motivated workers with great potential. In addition, know when employees are simply dead weight. Work to encourage and enhance the former, and get rid of the later.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    1950's has returned

    Educator (Former Employee)

    ProsThe best thing about this position was the health and dental benefits

    ConsWhere to begin there are so many issues with this organization.
    The hiring process- they sell this position as a research, teaching and academic position- it is not that
    The administration- is a joke, most of the administration has no leadership skills and should not be in a position of power
    The job- the work is crazy, if you have a image of 1950's programming and education this organization is right for you. The programs they run are not useful in today world

    Advice to Senior ManagementDefinitely need to be more transparent about what the actual position is. Do not sell these position as research scholarly work position because they are not. Take care and support your employees

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My experience has been instrumental in my professional and research skill set growth, hands down.

    Project Assistant (Current Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsFriendly co workers, and relationship building is a priority over performance. Nice place for doing active hands on research, helpful staff, moderate amount of opportunities to travel and present your work

    ConsIf seeking graduate level appointments, research is can be entirely independent, they are affected by the tight climate, slimly diverse.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
