    Hard to think of a con ... maybe lack of clear path to advancement.

    Pros

    Dept. of Neurosurgery is amazing - really enjoyed working under my PI. I had really fun and challenging projects as well as a diverse array of projects.

    Cons

    I get the sense that MCW executives don't put forth much effort to make it easy on the researcher. Can be difficult to get funding with the high institutional costs. MCW's vision also seems a little unclear in terms of research.

    Advice to Management

    The MCW executives need to very clearly communicate the specifics of their vision for MCW research. After doing my PhD research and Postdoc research at or alongside MCW, the details of their vision for research remain indefinable.

    Pros

    great company to work for, great benefits. Opportunity to grow within the organization and it is very flexible.

    Cons

    I do not think there is anything negative about MCW. I would recommend adding a work from home policy that allows employees a little bit more flexibility.

    Pros

    Employees are valued and professional development is encouraged. Colleagues are great people--many became good friends. My department offered workshops and learning activities weekly. I had the opportunity to attend lectures multiple times per day.
    Great benefits! Generous vacation and sick days. Great insurance.

    The cafeteria leaves something to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support faculty and staff as you have been.
