Outstanding Benefits, No Opportunity for Advancement
Financial Specialist (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – March 4, 2014
The Univeristy has an excellent culture; however, the politics make it extremely difficult to advance. There are RARELY any type of raises or any salary increases are extremely small and never occur. Most of the professors and administrators are a joy to work with. There is however always one person in the department who has been in the position for a very long time and who makes your life extremely difficult for no reason. Due to the politics, there is nothing anyone is willing to do about it.
No raises, bonuses, or any additional monetary compensation. And no opportunity for advancement.

Chemistry Tutor (Former Employee) – Kenosha, WI – June 11, 2017
A typical day at work involved me tutoring college students on the subject of general chemistry. The most enjoyable part of the job was teaching others about a subject I was passionate about. The hardest part of the job was maintaining patience with the students' individual competency levels. Some students were more proficient at learning the subject than others and I had to be more patient with the students who were struggling.

IS Specialist (Production Scheduler) (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 30, 2017
Overall, it is a really great place to work.
I love UWM for many reasons. Primarily, UWM is in line with my values - I place a high value on learning and the inquisitive intellect, and I also place high values on cultural inclusivity and human rights as well as on environmental sustainability, It is important to me to feel that my work has meaning, perhaps not in and of itself, but by being in support of an organization whose overall purpose has meaning to me, and UWM does represent my core values.
UWM is also just a great place to work. The benefits are great and the people are wonderful.
Camp leader (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 29, 2017
A typical day in a student athletes life would be waking up early in the morning to have either an individual or team workout. Following, would be the start to one's day with either class or work hours that go towards your degree. In the mist of attending class and work outs, homework, social life and relaxation would be tended to. Personally, a job was not possible because of the demanding hours of basketball. With that being said, coach allowed us to work basketball camps which led to us being paid, along with money our scholarship benefited us with. The most enjoyable part of my experience at UW-Milwaukee was meeting new people and making memories with so many different people.
