UWSP is slowly going down hill due to all the budget cuts set by the elected officials in the State.
There is a union presence on campus; however, very few people pay union dues since the union has no power.
There are minimal pay increases but there are merit increases that are based on performance and if your supervisor likes you or whose desk you are under. This whole process pits one employee against each other.
Department chairs are elected by the department faculty but receive no training on how to supervise; therefore, the staff become very frustrated. Don't try to file a complaint with Personnel since in most cases, management sides with management.
65% of the faculty are very arrogant and pompous. They will constantly complain how underpaid they are and how they never get any time off. What about 3 weeks of paid time off between Christmas and third week of January and spring break!!!
If you are an A-- kisser, you will be just fine working at UWSP. If not, apply at all other companies in Cen WI; you will be happier in the long run. GOOD LICK!
