    As a patient , I had an excellent experience but as an employee not so good.

    Health Unit Clerk (Current Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsAs patient, the care was every good. If I had a problem it was quickly addressed and solved. I received all meals and meds in a timely fashion. Any concerns or question I or my children had about my treatment was thoroughly explain.

    ConsAs an employee , I feel there not enough educational opportunities like they haves for the doctors and nurses. They care more about the common areas ( patients rooms, nurses desk and hallways) being clean and up to parang not enough about the behind the scenes rooms ( the break rooms ( the floors are beyond dirty)

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat the employees as well as you treat the patients. Show as much concern for our well being as you do for the patients you want us to care off.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Surgical scheduler

    Surgical Scheduler (Former Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsGreat work recognition, I worked within women's health in the New Center One building for Henry Ford. We had a great team and everyone was a team player.

    ConsThe traffic was very irritating driving down to DéTroit every morning. Henry ford seems to eliminate position and out work on others with compensating with pay. The pay is among the lowest in the healthcare industry compared to St. John, Beaumont, and DMC.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    OK place. Not recommended for post docs.

    Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsAble to interact with clinicians and clinical oriented research staff

    ConsLimited resources for training. Long hours of work and sometimes to come to work even if there is statewide weather alert[i.e. snow storm). No money to buy software yet asked to work using a pirated version. There are really rude and mean people works here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI thought people working in a reputable hospital works there because they really care about people. As far as I know, there are only a handful of them, the rest are just self-oriented, obnoxious, bullies with big brain but no heart.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not what I expected. No room for promotions or increased salary.

    Patient Care Services Director (Current Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    Prosbenefits decent, commute is not to bad.

    ConsNo potential for growth in terms of salary and promotions. Corporate culture used to be admirable but the Administration has created tension. Those that have been here over 5 years might have some security but the rest of us are trying to stick with what we have got. Overworked, no room to be heard, and fear of job retention. Working for this size hospital is proving to be a disadvantage for middle and site managers and directors. I certainly feel that upper level management doesn't care about making us grow.

    It was an Ok place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsBenefits are top notch.

    ConsNo promotions at all. I worked in the business side of Henry Ford and it was schamful how they run the company. Very little changes from day to day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook to move people who have worked there up the ranks. You are losing really good people to others because in order to move up you have to job jump.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
