    I have been working at Children's Wisconsin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is very caring and appreciative of a job well done. Very high morals and very inclusive.

    Cons

    Low pay, which can be expected from not for profit organizations, and it is very difficult to accrue any time off.

    I worked at Children's Wisconsin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Sometimes can work from home, laid back office

    Cons

    Managers are incompetent, lazy bullies with zero Integrity. Managers get away with treating staff horribly, yelling, bullying, lying, etc. They also have their staff do their work and take credit for it all. Upper management and HR don't listen and allow the behavior to continue. Staff that do nothing get raises just like everyone else. Health benefits are expensive and high deductible. Pay is low. Six holidays per year, which are lumped with your vacation.
