As a House Fellow at Smith Hall my experience was incredibly positive and it helped me develop vital skills I still use specifically regarding time management, conflict resolution, and creating interpersonal relationships in an efficient manner.
Graduate Teaching Assistant - Biomechanics (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – November 24, 2017
Workplace culture is very enjoyable, they stress a work-life balance. Hardest part of the job only comes when schoolwork gets to be too much since I am a student concurrently. I technically have two jobs with the University and both are my favorite jobs to date.
Projects moved at a slower pace than I would have liked
Consultant, Office of Quality Improvement (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – October 11, 2017
The culture at UW-Madison was one in which implementing change, even obviously positive change, resulted in very slow adoption. Leadership, in general, would seek nearly unanimous consensus before truly leading change.
IS Technical Services Senior (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – September 26, 2017
A typical day consisted of answering help desk calls, working with Altiris to resolve various issues and training. The hardest part of the job was working with Altiris because I had no experience with it and did not have enough training to be effective with it. Also, resources for it was for all intents and purposes non-existent. This created a lot of stress. Also, fellow employees were very cut-throat when it came to answering questions.
Research assistant (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – September 26, 2017
I enjoyed my two student jobs at the UW-Madison. I worked in a lab in my department, which provided me with important experience in my field. I also worked at the SAFEWalk program through Transportation Services, which I also enjoyed. My only complaint is that the student salary is low. Hopefully this will change in the future.
Managers are happy to work around students' schedules.
