I can't say enough about Marquette, it has been the largest single institution in my life and I am honored to be part of its family. As a workplace, its benefits and work-life balance are unmatched

College Job
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WINovember 30, 2014
It sufficed to receive additional credits, as well as gave me insight on working with research. I did data analysis and content analysis, and conducted interviews... Overall it was a positive experience while at Marquette.

Poor compensation, poor management- Great Students!
Administrative (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WIOctober 28, 2014
Horrible pay, expensive benefit pkgs., with high out of pocket costs in relation to compensation. Insurance premium increase of 10% annually.

Employer charges Parking Fees to Employee utilizing any parking lot (around $80 a month).

Merit raises for employee (rated 4/5 scale) is 1%. Doesn't matter what you are rated all staff are given same raise.

Employees are requested to make regular donations BACK to the school. (voluntary)

Continual work load increases w/o compensation or comp-time

From the top to the bottom - management is poor at best, and retained.
New management is shown how to intimidate, and lead with a stick.
No On-boarding for new hires which sets employees up to fail, or driven away resulting in a high turnover rate. Employees are continually absorbing this extra work.

High crime location

Positives-

Tuition compensation for employee (that is accepted into a program)

Dependent Tuition compensation- After employee has worked full time for 5 years.

Retirement benefit they match your 5% with 8%. Too bad majority of staff can't afford the 5%

GROW classes - if employee is able to attend during workday.

Best part- The students and faculty- I found, professionally and personally enriching! I figured out how to gain a ton of experience and knowledge!

Teaching assistant (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WisconsinOctober 17, 2014
Marquette University is a well-known Catholic University located in Milwaukee Wisconsin.
As a graduate student, served as teaching assistant for about a year, I really enjoy it.
Its open-minded environment gives your tons of opportunities to strengthen yourself in many different ways.

Fun campus job with a diverse group of team members
Upward Bound Resource Manager (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WIJune 25, 2014
Pros: very flexible
Cons: still used paper forms instead of computers
Managed tutoring services on a MS Access database for over 100 students. This position strengthened my communication skills while working with students and professionals. I was able to use my leadership skills in developing a new method of scheduling for the program. The most enjoyable part was the fun, friendly, and flexible work environment.

Wonderful job with wonderful people
Audio and Visual Technician (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WIMarch 25, 2014
A typical day at work would include setting up different types of audio and visual technology in different rooms throughout the Alumni Memorial Union. Asking the building manager if he or she needs any help would come next, and if they don't need you to do anything then there is a lot of sitting until someone needs you to do something. I continue to learn a lot more about different technology. My co-workers are all really nice and helpful.

Administrative Secretary (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: coworkers and work culture were great. boss too.
Cons: drive time to downtown milwaukee was a downer.
Daily work experience was challenging yet fun. A real learning experience. Hardest part of my job was making the cold calls. Most enjoyable part of my job was talking to diverse personalities day in and day out.
