    I have been working at UMPhysicians full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The job security in this company is very good.

    Cons

    Below average pay, substandard benefits and a far too large work load vs. size of team ratio. This company seems very reactionary to the changing landscape of health care as well rather than being proactive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your staff has the "man power" to ensure their tasks are done effectively and efficiently.
    Also, catastrophic health care plans are a little underwhelming. Take a page out of Target, Macy's, Medtronic, Starbucks book(s) and provide decent health care for your work force.

    I worked at UMPhysicians part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the time I was with UMPhysicians working under the Mgr that hired me. Then within 7 months there were 5 different turnovers in Managers.
    Pay was fair. not the best, but fair.
    Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Senior nurses are forced out of their jobs if not voluntarily, they cut the hours so drastically it cost more money to get to work than what you are paid for. I had applied for many jobs for internal transfer with qualifications that exceeded their requirements. It is perplexing why this Company requires many years of experience when it comes to CEO and other upper management, but do not appreciate the senior nurses many years of their experience. Would think they would utilize us as highly valuable assets and mentors to other younger RN's to reduce the high turnover turn over. Why any Company would not want to utilize the many years that a Senior nurse has to offer is beyond logic. The bottom line is all about the "money".
    I was told by my direct manager, i was too expensive, and that she could hire someone cheaper but with less experience. I would not recommend working for this Company, unless you are fresh out of RN school or have less than 15 years of experience. If you are hired, keep your Resume updated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the Senior nurses and the experience they have to offer.
    Do not micro manage.
    Stand up for your employees, when confronted to cut hours. and Senior nurses.
    Hire Senior nurses, instead of forcing them out of a job, they NEED. Our loyalty counts for something

    I have been working at UMPhysicians full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Because of its disarray, there's lots of opportunity to have an impact. I like the benefits, salary, etc. My boss is very laid back, big-picture kind of guy, lets you focus on your job without micromanaging you. For me at least, there is pressure to perform, but it's tempered by the company's past failures to execute and so you're given more flexibility and understanding. This is greatly appreciated.

    Cons

    Suffers hugely from the core complexity of being stuck between the two 800lb. gorillas that are the U of M and Fairview. This infects *everything*.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Separate the firm into its own organization, disparate from the U and Fairview! This will aid in so many areas.

    Pros

    Caring staff and some management, great, interesting patients, access to lectures and learning in academic setting, opportunities to take initiative and contribute to greater organization

    Cons

    Minimal pay for work scope and expectations beyond what's reasonable for scheduled work hours. Communication from mgmt. is inconsistent. Workplace confidentiality - not always respected. Hiring decisions seem to select least costly person, high turn-over on staff & mgmt. levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more experienced staff and then listen to them, lots of wasted time developing soft skills and developing learning curve, be respectful of staff time in implementation of prioritized initiatives, changes; communicate more consistently.
