    StarStarStarStarStar Current IT Manager in Madison, Wisconsin

    The best thing about the time. You have four weeks of paid vacation. I worked from 9 to 4 each day. It was easy to take time off. I really enjoyed working in my department. Another positive thing, there is no strict deadline for the projects. I can submit anytime I want

    No clear line of vocation plan at all. There is no family leave policy either. You will have to work with the department and HR to figure out a paid leave. The healthcare package was OK though.

    The best thing is the employees you work with. They are really cool and like to hang out outside of work.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Academic Program Director in Madison, Wisconsin

    Health insurance, dental and vision is fantastic. Vacation and sick leave is wonderful. Retirement is extremely advantageous. Professional development is offered every minute of every day of every week. The opportunities are boundless. These all make up for the less-than-desirable salaries offered across the board.

    I did not receive benefits for the first year working at the university. I received benefits my second year-health insurance-and that was it. However, I had time off as well-about 1.5 months total.
