    Positive experience working with dedicated, friendly staff

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorking with people from various departments who are all committed to the importance of social education. Flexible work schedule. Helpful supervisor(s) willing to offer guidance. Friendly employees.

    ConsCould use smoother and more streamlined communication across different departments, information sometimes gets lost in the shuffle. Could use more initial instruction when first starting out on a project to better communicate objectives.

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

    An easy job if you just need some quick cash, but don't make a career out of it.

    There are better places to work around campus

    Student Supervisor (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexible hours, good starting wage, work with other students

    ConsManagers are rude and ineffective, employee input is not considered, no one has any business acumen

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that your "low skill" workforce is made up of engineers, accountants and food science majors; your employees are a valuable resource.

    Great place to work as a student

    Catering (Current Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsGood wages and low taxes. High flexibility with schedules. In general, good co-workers. Management understands that you're going to be hungover on friday, saturday or sunday mornings, and are mostly nice enough to not yell at you. Free food on the job sometimes!

    ConsTraining is boring (but always is in food service industry). No tips

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe a little less micromanaging.

    Good student job

    Student Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsVery flexible around your school schedule. I worked at a Deli and never had to work nights or weekends. The pay is outstanding for a first job!

    ConsManagement was frustrating at times since there was little communication over issues the delis were having. Customers could be rude but that's any job in food service.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to communicate better amongst each other. Often times new policies were implemented and student employees had no idea what was actually going on until we got yelled at.
