Encouraged growth, diverse and active place to work. Family oriented and job serious.
Program Assistant 3 (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – September 23, 2013
Really had to multi-task. Working with so many people taught me to perform well under stress, taught me conflict resolution skills, the importance of organization. I met people from all around the world and was honored to learn about their cultures. Also, working in an academic environment gave me the advantage of education by association (many conversations and debates).
it's a college campus... need i say more!
if public transportation is not used, parking is challenging and expensive.
Network Administrator/Desktop Support (Current Employee) – Wausau, WI – January 26, 2016
Working at the UW has given me the opportunity to work with a diverse user base and a broad range of hardware and software products. I've had many training opportunities which have allowed me to expand my IT knowledge.
A typical day is never typical. Always something new.
My co-workers have been extraordinary in that they come from all walks of life.
The hardest part of the job is knowing what to work on next in a one-man shop.
Working with college students is very rewarding and most enjoyable.
Graduate Assistant - Accounting (Current Employee) – La Crosse, WI – September 16, 2015
Learned different accounting concepts. Learned how to teach students. Performing research on different concepts about Internal Audit was the major part of my job. Apart from that the coworkers were friendly.
Since related to my major, Doing research helped me learn more.
IT Director - Infrastructure and Operations (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – September 14, 2015
In my 22 years of IT professional work mostly in private sectors. UW is probably one of the top 1% work places I have had the pleasure of working. dealing with educated and professional people all the time and believe it or not it makes a lot of difference in one's attitude.
Assistant Scientist (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – September 10, 2015
In the Department of Medical Physics alone we have two PET for humans and two microPET. The department developed or built their own cyclotron. We have the one of the biggest primate center in the nation.
Graduate Assistant in Management Department (Current Employee) – La Crosse, WI – September 1, 2015
I have been working at UW-La Crosse part-time (More than a year) I have to say it's a nice environment with flexible work schedule for students work. The way is also higher than standard student work pay.
Student worker Dishroom Manager (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 30, 2015
I graduated and felt ready for the world. The world isn't always ready for the graduate. Just because it was founded by women doesn't make it a pre-women dominated it is big and growing it isn't a fun and games school it will take hard work, and on top of hard work, hard learning and preparations to graduate here.
A lady foundation now a Large University for men as well.
Needs to more activity in the world not only society but community.
Specialist Designer/Developer (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – July 30, 2015
The people who work at UW-Madison are absolutely top-notch. The management I had daily contact with in my position were friendly, super-helpful, concerned about us individually. They "get" that most of us have real lives to go home to, and my co-workers and managers bent over backwards several times as I dealt with a couple of serious family illnesses and other situations. Cannot recommend the day-to-day atmosphere too highly.
In the same vein, I can't stress enough how toxic the UW System's relationship is with the current Wisconsin legislature. While my particular position was entirely stable due to not being tied to the state budget, there was a lot of angst around me for my entire six years here, and my (already meager by coder standards) take-home pay went down by about 12% during my time here, and that downward slide doesn't look like letting up.
Great co-workers, fascinating work, blue-ribbon health coverage
Positive enivronment as everyone's focus is serving students
Program Assistant-Confidential (Former Employee) – River Falls, WI – July 16, 2015
Great collaborative environment and supportive management. I work in administration and am proud of the administrators. I love the community feel throughout the entire campus. The governor has cut so much from the education budget and that has created a lot of damage, including me losing my job.
Good place to work as a student employee despite the occasional chaos
Student Supervisor (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – July 10, 2015
Working for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Dining Division of Housing gave me an opportunity to gain supervisor and management experience while I was still a student.
The structure of Housing doesn't allow for necessary changes to be implemented in a timely manner. As a supervisor I was met with several road blocks when I would try to suggest more efficient ways to do things.
Some co-workers just didn't know how to work hard and that was rather frustrating.
