Financial Assistant II (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 28, 2018
A typical day is filled with brainless task. Management is the worst I have ever seen. You are treated like a child and nothing gets done about rude supervisors. the workplace culture is very diverse but can also be segregated at times.
Ophthalmic Coordinator (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 28, 2018
Very fast pace environment. I had to multitask alot. I was responsible for attending to numerous patients and supervising nurses aides at the long term care and assisted living facilities. I had to learn to deal with all types of personalities of patients and families . Duties I learned depended upon what type of facility I was at. Management was too many chiefs and not enough indians. Diversified culture. Hardest part of the job was when I lost a patient. The most enjoyable part of the job was be able to converse with the different patients and family members.
Free lunches at some facilities, good pay. Learned new skills
Research Technologist I (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – June 8, 2018
I loved being a research Technologist. I loved advancing science, researching various methods, and getting results. However my lab manager was the micromanaging type and made it her job to pick apart everything I did and made my days at work unbearable. She would act cheery and nice in front of everybody else and then destroy me in emails or in front of my PI. After a family tragedy, I was struggling with depression, told my lab manager, and she told me to suck it up or find a different career.
Physician (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 22, 2018
Search this employer in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. With an HR department of 2 employees to 5500 workers and reported age and race discrimiation and FMLA retaliation, there is a clear reason the turn over is so high for physicians. Stay away.
Dedicated faculty and staff focused on research and cure of cancer
Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – April 8, 2018
There is no typical day in the Cancer Center. My work day varies depending on whether I am planning internal visiting professors itinerary and/or coordinating external community engagement events.
I have learned how to convey the importance of being an advocate for ones own health to reduce to risk of cancer.
The culture is a team focused approach to addressing cancer disparities.
Management encourages its employees to be creative and share ideas for improving efficiency and effective business operations.
The hardest part of the job is understanding how complex cancer is and how research, clinical trials and legislation impact the development of drugs and treatment.
The most enjoyable part of the job is community outreach. Being in the community educating at risk populations about way to reduce the risk of cancer and the important of screening and early detection.
Dysfunctional leadership and hostile, fear-driven work environment
Postdoctoral Fellow in Medical Physics (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – April 8, 2018
There is no leadership in the department. Postdocs are treated poorly and constantly threatened with their jobs. The quality of research is poor. There are quality researchers in the department but their suggestions are disregarded when it comes to research. It is sad that people are just trying to save the day and pretend to do research due to dysfunctional leadership which is far from the scientific approach. Instead of cooperation there is a toxic competition between people who work here.
good location, great doctors
poor leadership, toxic workplace, fear-driven motivation, weak research
Internship (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – March 28, 2018
The most enjoyable part of the job, you get to learn a lot about the human research and other scientific medicals. This internship helps you have a better resume for any other job, such as hospitals and clinics.
Multi-Million Dollar Company that doesn't fulfill their stated Missions
Coding Specialist (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – March 21, 2018
As an employee and a patient within this organization, I cannot say there was any satisfaction in either of my situations. They do not practice what they preach! I would not recommend this to anyone as a positive place of employment or an organization to have their healthcare concerns addressed. Highly dissatisfied with the medical treatment I received as a patient and the way I was treated as an employee.
Pre Arrival Scheduler (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – March 12, 2018
This was the worst job I have ever had. I worked in pre arrival scheduling working over the phone in a call center environment. The job itself is okay except it is repetitive work that can be a bit stressful with no opportunity for advancement. They expect you to be almost robotic with required scripting that no patients want or have time to hear. When things slow down you can get 15 or 20 minutes between calls and you are expected to look at your keyboard and do nothing until you get another call. No internet, magazine, cell phone or communicating with eachother during down time. Managers are horrible. They will micro manage you until you go crazy. They never show appreciation or acknowledge good employees unless you are one of their very few favorites. They do not take suggestions or concerns from the employees that actually do the job that they are constantly criticizing. You will often be criticized through emailed screen shots to show what you did wrong or that you punched in 1 minute late demanding an explanation no matter the weather. They pick and choose who tardiness can be excused for no matter the situation or frequency. Management and leads believe they are the most frequent knowledge of how things should be done at all times even when doctors and clinics are constantly changing protocols but not communicating those changes. The turn over rate is extremely high. Employees are just another number and get replaced with ease. You will be monitored as if you are a child. You are expected to put up a sign that states exactly what you are doing if you have to get upmore... from your desk for anything such as going to the bathroom, walking to the printer that is 2 feet away, your short 10 minute break or the fax machine. I have been asked multiple times to sit back down for needing to use the restroom since 1 other person was away from their desk. (Mind you its a call center with plenty of other availability.) Much of the nursing staff you have to communicate with almost daily are extremely rude and try to belittle you. They ignore patients phone calls and messages even when they have urgent concerns. I would never recommend this department to anyone who doesn't want to get paid to be treated like a child.less
