    Former Employee - Organizational Effectiveness in Detroit, MI

    I worked at Detroit Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to effect organizational improvements exist throughout the company.
    Corporate aquisition may provide the necessary infusion of money to target improvements and enhance organizational capacity.

    Cons

    Long term leaders are barriers to change.
    Financial capital necessary to make improvements are limited.
    Employees are resistant to change and pessimistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your staff to be part of the change that is necessary.
    Build trust.

    I worked at Detroit Medical Center

    Pros

    I cannot think of any pros unless you live in Midtown and don't own a car.

    Cons

    No company values, terrible working conditions, understaffed, all the administration cares about is making their year end bonuses. Patients are the lowest priority.

    I have been working at Detroit Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    None nada zip zilch zero nothing no one if I knew different languages I would say it different ways. The only pro is that I have a job but for how long who knows

    Cons

    1 the building - it's falling apart. The sixth floor roof is leaking the elevators hardly work. What other elevator do you know of that has to go all the way up before it can go down?!?!
    2 management- all they care about is themselves and their job. Tired of working short staffed because they keep sending people home early.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you start treating your employees like they make a difference then they will. The ER nurses got a raise for either staying (they work short ALL THE TIME - someone call JCAHO) or just for putting up with the patients. Well when are other departments going to get their respective raises?

    I have been working at Detroit Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Can't really say more than this. Not much under pro when so much is unfair.

    Cons

    I and other employees have been lied to repeatedly over last 5 years. Myself and another colleague in department go above and beyond every day. I've even received an award for recognition of this. I do the same job as nurses in my department. But when raise time came I was left out because I have a different degree. This I'd unacceptable. And a violation of labor laws. If this is not fixed they will find this out the hard way in court.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees fairly and quit lying. We all know what you and Joe are up to. You are not practicing what you preach.

    I have been working at Detroit Medical Center full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great entry level foot-in-the-door type of job. Nice employees, and decent supervision. Weekly meetings and events within the department. Benefits after 30 days

    Cons

    Very tedious but at the same time feel like I am way to over qualified with my education. Upper management within the department needs to me revamped. lack of structure and does not listen to employees opinions.

    I have been working at Detroit Medical Center part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are located in the heart of Midtown Detroit so you are close to a lot of events and activities. Positions are pretty stable, depending on the department. Pay is decent as well as employee perks

    Cons

    Management needs better, quality training. The building I worked in was very very old and outdated. Benefits can be sky high and there is no room for growth whatsoever. Nurses in certain facilities can be very rude and nasty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need better training on how to be better managers.

    I have been working at Detroit Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits and growth within the organization is/was relatively easy. Great Tuition reimbursement and Employee perks.

    Cons

    Recent layoff and pay freezes have decreased employee moral. Much older work environment which often times makes work dull and mundane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminating new processes and strategies to get the younger work population involved and enthused about working for DMC. Laying off people and loading the remaining employees with more work for less money is causing burnout, and decreasing employee moral and employer loyalty.
