Brand and Content Specialist, Education Division (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – July 26, 2017
Favoritism and cronyism are the norms. Cut-throat environment created lots of back-stabbing. "Pay for Performance" adds to the negative environment. If you are making under the mean for your position, you are guaranteed a raise. If you are making above the mean, you will NOT receive a raise. If you are in the mean range, only then does pay for performance come into play. Plus, their HR will tell you "you are not employed there to be a good parent, you are employed to be able to afford being a parent." Thus issues that may arise concerning your family and/or their health are expected to be ignored during business hours, regardless of importance.
