Do not work ffor her. She is not a pleasant person. Don't waste your time. Does not take any suggestions In big with the director. Job increases are based on budgets. And the director gets a raise on how much she can save on her salaries for employees.
Cons
very disappointing

Unless you get directly into a supervisory position, you are stuck
Office Operations Associate (Former Employee) –  University of Wisconsin SystemAugust 4, 2016
If you want to learn how to make coffee and fill copy machines with paper, then this is the place for you. Or as my former supervisor put it, "We hired you to do all the jobs we don't want to." That included running personal errands, doing jobs for relatives, and doing all the computer work that managers couldn't do because computers are too hard to learn. At least for managers. It is also very biased against single men. If you are a woman or a minority, then you will go far. You can even go so far as to threaten and harass your employees, because, as HR put it, "we don't have rules against it." As soon as the unions lost their power, the people in charge started making life miserable for anybody who was an hourly employee. All the merit raises stayed within management. All the training opportunities stayed within management. Unless you wanted to learn more about how to make coffee. Or set up the break rooms for weekly parties.
Pros
Pretty campus
Cons
Wages keep dropping, low morale, bullying and harassment

Employed (Current Employee) –  Whitewater, WIJune 8, 2016
Despite budget cuts, staff/faculty still unite and hold strong for the good of the students. Most employees aren't in Higher Ed for the money anyways. Salary is still competitive and opportunities for growth and leadership are endless.

Associate Lecturer (Former Employee) –  River Falls, WIFebruary 1, 2016
Great place to work for teaching faculty. Challenging standards and full faculty dedication to student development. Working at UWRF I discovered my ability to teach a broad range of subjects outside my field and participated in new and exciting teaching methodologies.
