Wonderful university - lacking in competitive employee benefits
Assistant Researcher (Current Employee), Madison, WI – March 29, 2014
Pros: amazing work atmosphere, friendly coworkers, fabulous work-life balance
Cons: no room to advance, no raises, poor salary, no reimbursement for education
I love my work environment at UW. However, since day one, they have fallen very short of others when it comes to competitive salary and benefits. I have worked here for four years without any type of advancement, and my salary is laughable. Such is life - they are an esteemed university and the reputation draws people here. I have learned an incredible amount, been very productive with publications, and my coworkers are like family to me.
