    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Medical College of Wisconsin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were awesome when I worked there but since leaving I have heard that the benefits aren't as great as they used to be.

    Cons

    It can be hard to get time off and the department I was in had a constant rotation of employees so tasks were constantly being shifted since they couldn't keep people long.

    Advice to Management

    Just appreciate your employees. The more you appreciate them the harder they will work. You can always find another employee but that doesn't mean they'll be as good.

    Pros

    Though some will complain that benefits aren't as good as they once were, for many staff they are still very good/competitive in current market. It offers an opportunity to work in an environment where individuals, be them faculty, researchers, or staff can all contribute to initiatives that improve health, education, research and patient care.

    Cons

    Research support is poor. There are few staff opportunities for advancement. Professional development is preached but seldom practiced. Annual performance evaluations as currently implemented are abstract, subjective and borderline useless to management and staff alike. Some areas like IS and HR are high turnover and understaffed. Compensation and culture vary from area to area. The worst are quite bad, but the best are outstanding. MCW is massive, but this explains why reviews and experiences differ so widely.

    Advice to Management

    Talent is the defining resource of your institution. Don't bother with engagement surveys only to be defensive about the results. If you see a division or department with high turnover, it's an indictment of the culture there, and leadership must answer for it. In my time at MCW I've worked both for my best and worst supervisors in 20 years.
