No opinion of CEO

I have been working at University of Wisconsin full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent access to top notch researchers and resources. The facilities are state of the art. Campus is accessible and beautiful. Staff and managers are flexible, encouraging, and supportive.

Cons

It is a bureaucratic organization so many of the administrative processes are slow and cumbersome. The university was recently hit with state policies that increased out of pocket health care costs for most employess.

Advice to Management

Continue to be more flexible.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at University of Wisconsin part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome student supervisors
    Normally good co-workers
    Flexible hours
    Good pay for a University job

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about student workers
    Management constantly making changes to procedures
    Embarrassingly incompetent co-workers can slip through the cracks and be a detriment to everyone

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to literally work desk staff shifts every now and then. Constant procedural changes and updating would not occur if you truly understood the work you were overseeing.
