    StarStarStarStarStar Former Student Locksmith in Madison, Wisconsin

    Well, I was a student employee so there were no benefits in my case. They were however very flexible with my schedule.

    You are eligible for full benefits with as little as a 50% work appointment. A lot of great options for health care coverage.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Research Specialist in Madison, Wisconsin

    Benefits at UW Madison are average to good. There are workshops and information sessions about Benefits and I strongly advise to attend those. If you have questions later on it is hard to get knowledgeable people on the phone. Termination of employment process is dismal, you basically have to gather all information yourself on the internet.

    Great benefits package - health, retirement, dental, pension, tuition and childcare assistance, they really take care of you here!

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Research Associate in Madison, Wisconsin

    No benefits provided. Students and assistants make up the bulk of the research work done but they're compensated ridiculously poorly.

    Best think is the health insurance coverage, I do not use it very much but when I do the treatment is great. The worst is the vacation and time-off polices which depends totally on you and your boss (Principal investigator). If your PI is reasonable and you get your work done, you can work whenever and wherever; nonetheless this is rare, since experimentation is time sensitive and you are the only responsible of your work . Bad planning or unexpected "issues" could result in data lose and ultimate in an extension of the time required to finish your studies.
