Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – December 12, 2017
The Medical College of Wisconsin is a great place to work if you get into a good department. In my particular department management isn't great, which makes it difficult to love my job. The benefits are great and compensation is descent. Other than the micromanagers in my department, the only other thing that is less than ideal is the parking issues. Some people are forced to park a long distance from their office, which adds time to your daily commute. There is a shuttle, which is nice, but if you miss it, then you are stuck waiting for it to make it's rounds which is an additional 8-10 minutes. Overall, I would recommend MCW to people in search of a good job/career.

Senior Account Representative (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – December 16, 2017
Management did not pursue leads on information given about supervisory staff that inefficiently lead their team. Lack of follow up and pursuing actual issues caused a snow ball effect that lead to an unbelievable amount of stress and problems that could have been easily avoided.
Pre-arrival Scheduler (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – November 28, 2017
I really enjoyed this position but I decided to go to working part time and none of their positions were part time. I enjoyed have contact with patients and being able to help them schedule appointments and help to make their experience a good one.
Transformation Facilitator Intern (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – November 15, 2017
I had the opportunity to work with the Medical College of Wisconsin as an intern during my senior year of college. This experience allowed me to broaden my professional knowledge and to apply concepts of process improvement and project management. The mentors were phenomenal and made sure to have learning reflections and help you as you ran your own process improvement project within the hospital environment.
Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – November 6, 2017
The physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants I worked with at the Medical College of Wisconsin provided evidence-based, compassionate care and were respectful of patients and each other. Advanced practice providers were always invited to participate in decisions about patient care and work life in the clinic and division I worked in. The clinic staff were employed by the hospital, not MCW, yet we worked very well as a team. We cared for a mix of privately and publicly insured patients who were all treated with respect and given the best care possible. Many patients had been born at the affiliate hospital and came back for their care all their lives. The providers and staff who worked there made it clear they enjoyed working with patients with challenging conditions and sometimes challenging personal lives. It was truly a privilege to work there until retirement.
HIgh degree of ethics and professionalism, outstanding environment with knowledgeable and helpful colleagues, stimulating and satisfying work, benefits
Registration Services Representative (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 29, 2017
I spend my day on the computer and receive calls from patients, clinics, and other hospital staff to assist them with registration and insurance information. In between calls you work on your assigned accounts to resolve edits, verify insurance, obtain workers compensation information etc. The hardest part of the job is that it can be a little slow sometimes. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you are able to help a patient. You really get to know the co workers you sit by.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 25, 2017
Busy and fast paced days at work. I learned how to work with multiple doctors in multiple locations and specialties at a time. Management was laid back and allowed employees to manage themselves. The culture was professional and relaxed. The hardest part of the job was traveling between work sites. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the doctors and nurses and balancing very challenging work duties.
Admin Asst 2 Dept of Cell Biology & Anatomy (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 17, 2017
I streamlined things for 1st year medical student exams. Gave me less to do. Sold handouts to students, suggested a way to streamline things, which other departments emulated. But I streamlined too much for myself, so I got bored.
Manager (Current Employee) – Wauwatosa, WI – October 11, 2017
11 years of experience here - this is a growing organization that has struggled to match the pace. Senior leadership is very good in vision and expansion, but needs to address a better cohesion with middle management. Too many bottle necks in the organizational structure where senior leadership is out of touch with key middle management resulting in bad lines of reporting.
Research Assistant - Trauma and Critical Care Unit (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 8, 2017
I really enjoyed the short time that I worked here. I was allowed to sit in on meetings that discussed ongoing mental health research that the hospital was conducting, which was an awesome experience as a student.
Buyer (Former Employee) – Wauwatosa, WI – August 11, 2017
For an company that prides themselves on innovation, internally they don't foster it. There is little to show for employee appreciation and lack of opportunities to be heard. Management is hired for their experience and not for their leadership skills. The culture is stagnant and archaic with no line of sight for the big picture.
Apart of an organization that passionate about medicine.
Inconsistent Management and Leadership, poor workplace culture.
