    I have been working at University of Wisconsin full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work; focused on clientele and helping improve their lives and businesses; great people!

    Cons

    Say "life-work balance" but not really much support to help achieve this; don't expect a private industry salary; state political climate against education is tough and creates uncertainties going forward

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin in April 2017.

    Interview

    The job I interviewed for was with the Medical College, specifically research with the CIBMTR. This was the first round of interviews - just a quick 15 minute chat on the phone. The woman interviewing me was nice and asked me around 10 questions - all very standard interview questions, nothing really technical or specific to the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Strengths, weaknesses, what is your management style, where do you see yourself in 5 years, etc.   Answer Question
