Pros

MCW has a few good qualities such as their benefits package, if you work in administration you are 'supposed' to have a good work/life balance.

Cons

The compensation they offer employees is horrible. It also all depends on who your direct manager is. If you are offered a job in Emergency Medicine Research TURN IT DOWN! You will be worked like a slave, you will not be granted the days off you requested - worse, you will be told you can take vacation and then at the last minute told that you cannot. It is a very 'cliquey' environment. My program manager was also very controlling and verbally abusive. If he found out that you talked to his boss, instead of him, he would corner you in his office and yell at your for not following the rules of the 'hierarchy'. We also never received annual reviews and never received feedback on our work. HR needs to do a much better job looking at their managers and listening to the employees feedback - certain people should not be managing others.

Advice to Management

Upper management in my opinion has been doing a great job with how they are handling the economy and keeping MCW afloat, financially. However, there needs to be a central system for giving employee reviews, and a system of checks & balances so managers can be monitored as well.
