    Okay for getting in the door

    Analyst (Former Employee) Okemos, MI

    ProsMany jobs at MPHI are for those with high intellect who are having difficulty finding jobs. This is likely because their 4 year or Master's degrees contained no real world work experience. If you are interested in working for the State of Michigan, a job here may help you land a job there.

    ConsJobs are grant funded. If the grant is going to expire, there is a very good chance you will need to find another one at MPHI or elsewhere. This entity is a non-profit, as will be your salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAn annual bonus is not as enticing as a base salary increase. Everyone knows this despite what management encourages employees to take.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    gained a solid background in facilities and operations management

    Operations Manager (Former Employee) Okemos, MI

    Prosgood people, good benefits, nice offices and good location

    Conshard to advance without a master's degree or above, little opportunity for administrative personnel

    Advice to Senior Managementmanagers should receive training prior to being moved into management roles - many are moved only because they have the right degree and not because they are good management material

    Chasing Leadership Whims

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, nice offices, and lots of nice people.

    ConsI believe that the work experience at this non-profit varies considerably by project and office. I worked in the main office in Okemos, where several of us were working hard chasing the often changing whims of the executive leadership team. There seemed to be a lot of turnover and frustration while I was there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSet long term goals and build towards them, or you'll just end up being a staffing agency for the Dept of Community Health.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Employees Don't Matter Here!

    (Former Employee) Okemos, MI

    ProsMPHI has excellent benefits. Good people. Always changing atmosphere. Convenient location. As far as equipment, you get what you want.

    ConsAs said before, if someone does not like you, you will disappear real fast. No matter how good you are at your job, no matter how much you put into the company or how long you have been there, they will fire you quickly if someone is jealous of you or they just flat out "Don't Like You". There is lots of backstabbing, two faced people here. Your own co-workers will sabotage your job to get ahead which is extremely unprofessional and pathetic. Vary disrespectful management staff. Pay grade is extremely low. No room for growth here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to the good employees that work hard and are good at their job. You focus more on politics instead of what is good for the company. You fire good people that are extreamly smart and are good at their jobs. You need to stop making other people that get paid less do your job. You need to do a more in depth investigation before you quickly push someone out the door.

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

    Company has a welcome culture and provides an excellent learning environment

    Nurse Consultant (Former Employee) Lansing, MI

    ProsInterface with Michigan Department of Health staff for mulitple initiatives and projects. Offers a more flexible work week such as part time or full time as needed.

    ConsMany of the positions require staff to work in downtown Lansing at Michigan Department of Community Health versus in the more easily accessabile Okemos office.

    Life is never dull

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Okemos, MI

    ProsIf you are flexible and love a challenging, and always changing environment, then MPHI is for you. Because everything is funding-driven, things can change on a client's whim. Things move at a very fast pace and the jobs can be very demanding of top performance. Projects usually have to be done yesterday.

    Great folks to work with. ISG leadership is knowledgeable and focused. Hours are typically M-F, 8-5 with lots of flexibility depending on projects and other responsibilities.

    On-site wellness center.

    ConsBecause everything is funding-driven, things can change on a client's whim. You'll be headed one direction at one moment, and then the client contacts you and tells you they are changing the requirements, goals, funding, etc. and everything changes the next moment. Funders have been known to cut funding, which can cut projects and staff.

    No training, communication and back stabbing.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Okemos, MI

    ProsMPHI offers Good benefits. Staff will be friendly initially.

    ConsYour leaders are not trained well and neither is your staff. Team work is unheard of. Many team members sit at their desk and talk all day while others try to meet dead lines. People working until their day is done is rare. If you accept a position be ready to do two positions. Very unfair way of doing reviews. If someone doesn't like you, yo will be fired.
