    Pros

    Wonderful patients great coworkers great atmosphere many opportunities for growth and a great place to learn as it is a teaching hospital

    Cons

    Not great support from all management and some rude coworkers and lower pay than other area hospitals

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive to employees, making sure that is adequate staff coverage on the floors so as nurses do not go overworked or burnt out so easily

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my co-workers. We were a great bunch and tried to enjoy our time there.

    Cons

    the management turnover is out of control, a new manager or director at least twice a year, each one coming in "to make big changes". Made it unbearable for the staff

    Advice to Management

    try not to immediately start the job out by turning the unit upside down in order to prove to your superiors that you could really make some changes. You lose a lot of really great, hardworking employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great support, very involved management.

    Cons

    I worked at Main Campus in Detroit which has little to no parking and you must park far from the hospital and take a shuttle to the hospital. That really stunk, especially in bad weather. HR is very slow to respond.

    Pros

    Large Hospital that provides extensive experience.

    Cons

    Below standard compensation, poor health benefits. Culture is non supportive and promotes horizontal hostility. Miserable place to work with no advancement opportunities unless you are in a click with management

    Advice to Management

    none.

    Pros

    As a surgeon, I thought that the work environment was supportive and generally helpful. The OR at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital runs smoothly and efficiently, and I think that they provide excellent care. The nursing staff and anesthesia support is superb. I think that Nancy Schlichting's vision is superb, and most of senior administration is highly qualified and excellent communicators.

    Cons

    Henry Ford Hospital is an old institution in need of renovation. Unfortunately, that will not occur for the foreseeable future because of their huge investment in EPIC. In addition, there were some changes made to standardize the appearance of the clinic spaces at HFH which unfortunately resulted in a sterile feel to the clinic space. There was minimal or no input from the departments on that decision, and departments were charged for the artwork that appeared in their patient waiting areas. In addition, the call center is well-intentioned, but it is located at a remote location from the hospital. On the other hand, the clinic space at HFWB and Columbus Center is excellent.

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus more on being an academic medical center, like CCF or Mayo, when selecting new chairs. Many of the chairs are relatively new, and some of them lack significant academic credentials.

    Pros

    Henry Ford is a great company, good benefits. A person can really learn a lot in this job.

    Cons

    Working in customer service with the public is draining. Another con is it is just answering phones all day, very repetitive.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to utilize your skills and you will definitely continue to grow here.

    Cons

    Some of the technicians are rude and disrespectful and they are the so called lead techs. Management let this get out of control especially because one of the techs is really good friends with the manager and he lets her get away with things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your friendships outside work, show no favoritism in the work environment. If that was in check you would be a better boss.

    Pros

    Can not think of any. Very sad career choice and disappointing that common courtesy and values are not respected and managers do not care

    Cons

    Always under staffed. Pay is a joke. Company policies apply to only certain people.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for skilled people who want a career. Fire people who are always late and always calling off. Stop giving people their choice schedule for their school and their OTHER JOBS and child care while others have to work around their needs.
