    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 The building I worked in was very very old and outdated.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.

    Selling hospital system to Vanguard, destroyed it for employees

    I worked at Detroit Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Vanguard did build a new hospital in Detroit which was good for the community however....the hospitals outside of Detroit were treated like step children.

    Cons

    I was let go, along with many experienced staff. The geriatric clinic where I was employed was shuttered, deserting hundreds of elderly patients, telling them to drive from north-western Oakland County to downtown Detroit for their care at the Rosa Parks Geriatric Clinic. Rosa Parks Geriatric Clinic is an award winning center, however; anyone who works with seniors, knows they will not drive over 30 miles to see a doctor in a city with a reputation that isn't the greatest. Many experienced staff from nurses to social workers to management were let go and the entire staff became vigilant as their teams shrunk and they were expected to do more for the same pay. Moral remains poor among staff from talking to people who remain employed at DMC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the small geriatric clinic to Huron Valley Sinai Hospital. The clinic may not have made a significant profit but it saved the hospital from unnecessary ER visits and re-admits. The patients who frequented the clinic rarely used the ER. They came to the geriatric clinic where they were treated and sent home. Tests were done, prescriptions were written and patients who needed to be admit were usually taken to their rooms with a direct admit, avoiding the ER entirely. The Baby-boomers were just starting to come into the clinic when it was closed. This small clinic served this community and had an excellent reputation. When encountering former patients and their families, they still feel deserted and many chose not to stay with the DMC system. A big loss for everyone....

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

    Pros

    NONE! But since u are making me say something I guess that I at least have a job after all of the changes

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Low pay. Not enough staff. Poor work conditions. Unsafe for workers and patients. Run the other way if ever thinking of greeting a job here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DMC is top heavy. Tenet needs to fire some management people and hire more workers. Make our pay more competitive to other local hospitals.

    I worked at Detroit Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    trying to support downtown detroit

    Cons

    hostile work environment, inadequate nursing staffing, it's all about profit for the investor not patient care. there used to be humane treatment of employees here, but no more. if you have to go to this hospital make sure you bring family to watch over your care and talk with the nurses and doctors daily. the heart hospital is not a hospital. it is an outpatient surgery center with almost no heart surgery done there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management

    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.
