Ph.D. Candidate/Research Associate (Current Employee), Madison, WIMay 27, 2014
Top notch school. The instructors could improve courses a little by focusing a little more on teaching, but this is most likely due to the fact that their first priority is research. They do the best they can with what time they have. Excellent school.

Outstanding Benefits, No Opportunity for Advancement
Financial Specialist (Current Employee), Madison, WIMarch 4, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: no raises, bonuses, or any additional monetary compensation. and no opportunity for advancement.
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.
