    Pros

    Henry Ford Health System offers some incentives to their employees. Some of those incentives include tuition reimbursement for employees who are looking to pursue more education, or even continuing their education. This is a nice incentive that not many companies are offering to employees today.

    Cons

    There is a consistent issue with staffing throughout the system. Many departments lack the manpower that is necessary to function as a whole correctly. As a result employees often feel the brunt of the impact that this has had within the system. Many employees feel as though their concerns are simply disregarded when presented to any type of management or superior.

    Advice to Management

    Spending more time with employees concerns and appropriately addressing them as necessary. Making employees feel valued by addressing theses topics can have a significant impact over time. This may also help to address issues such as appropriate staffing.

    Pros

    Good Health Benefits. (medical, dental)

    Poor pay, very poor pay. Below average compare to other area Health Systems. Vision benefits could be much better.

    Pros

    Friendly management, RSV (retirement) package, commute and team environment.

    Cons

    Scheduled templates which does not offer flexible scheduling.
    Management requires staff to find own coverage to cover weekend off requests. If coverage not found, CTO is denied even if it involves vacation request.
    RN's opinions are not valued by middle management regarding safe nurse/patient ratios

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate RN's opinions into the staffing the unit.
    Develop a scheduling committee to incorporate flexible scheduling for the staff.
    Discontinue unit policy "Employees must find own coverage"
