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

    Pros

    Great and very cool place to work interacting with scientists and physicians, learning about the different research going on. Benefits are very good, stable employment

    Cons

    not much opportunity for advancement if you do not have a degree. In my experience the leadership is not supportive of growth or movement within MCW unless you have a degree or know someone in the place you want to go. HR is very aloof and do not have any processes or guidelines for staff support training or advancement.

    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, depending on department- flexible hours

    Cons

    Depending on PI, you could be working in an unhealthy environment. PI's dictate how professional they want your lab to be. We have a student who drops the "N" word with the hard R and cusses/yells at people with no repercussions.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your yearly evaluations with the staff. It is not appropriate for my supervisor to tell me straight to my face that I am reaching Outstanding constantly, but they want to give me a Solid so they don't have to give me a raise. That is not how it should work.

    based on staff scientist experiences:

    - no growth opportunities for scientist, always at corner lab

    I have been working at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time

    Pros

    The Medical College of Wisconsin is an amazing place to grow your career and contribute to a mission that matters and makes a difference in the Milwaukee community, the region, state and nation at large. We even have an international reach!

    The Human Resources department is unlike any I have ever worked with or been a part. They are deeply valued throughout the organization and therefore have great influence. Projects are exciting, dynamic and require creative solutions. The community that HR serves and supports is brilliant and exceptional which brings deep meaning to the work.

    Lots of opportunities to flex and create-which is recognized and rewarded.

    Cons

    Projects are dynamic and at times may not move forward as quickly as desired.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work supporting and investing in the people of MCW.
