Good only if you are a young white male
Management (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMarch 26, 2015
If you are a young white male, this is the place for you...unlimited opportunity, a true voice in the company, etc. If you are a female or a person of color, you will be much happier somewhere else. They will tell you that you have a voice and that you are a partner, but that is not the day to day reality.

You are paid below market as they tell you that you will be an owner. That is a great benefit...trust me, until you have to put down a second mortgage on your house to exercise shares. If you don't exercise shares, you are viewed as not committed and put on some blacklist.

The biggest negative is that they tell you how to vote so if you aren't a hardcore republican, stay away. They even have yard signs for you to put on your lawn for the "right" candidates.

When I started there I thought it was all about being free to be who you are, but at the end of the day, you are only free to be who you are if you are a young, white, male republican.
Pros
Profit sharing, fitness center, relaxed dress code
Cons
Tell you how to think; you must be under 40 to be taken seriously

A positive and challenging environment that focused on professional development
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIApril 16, 2013

They encouraged us to grow professionally by offering many classes for all partners. They wanted us to volunteer in the community and be mentors to the youth of Milwaukee.
Pros

Cons
hard for people outside of the uw system.

Serious but rewarding
Customer Database Coordinator Intern (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIApril 11, 2014
I handled a lot of confidential information for our students and faculty. I facilitated many mass mailings informing students and faculty about deadlines or about overdue payments. It was challenging because many students and faculty do not comply with your requests. It is rewarding because I learned a great deal about how to communicate in different ways to satisfy the people I was in contact with on a daily basis.

Great place to work
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJune 19, 2014
Great place to work. All about promoting from with in.

Account manager role is a lot of up and downs. Big on numbers and hitting budget. On the phone all the time, pretty much cold calling and introducing yourself to people until you've built up your territory. Some customer can have a negative notion of you as AM's pervious might not of done a good job.
Pros
atonomy
Cons
can be stressful and at times exhausting trying to hit budget
