    I thoroughly enjoy being a contractor for the University. Everyone I have encountered is kind, helpful, and considerate.

    I have been working at University of Detroit Mercy

    Pros

    The people and their desire to help their overall community. My mentor there is always ready to be of assistance, as is her supervisor.

    Cons

    I have not experienced anything negative. My handler is very supportive and open to new ideas. Ok...I could always use more money.

    I worked at University of Detroit Mercy full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance was very good. times that I did work an occasional weekend for an event were not burdensome. It was a rewarding place to work. Lots of opportunity for personal growth. Free tuition was really nice and gave me a perpective of life in the classroom for the students. Professors and academic deans work together as a cohesive unit. Office culture was very good. Offices across campus work together for the students. They truly want great things for the students.Very good benefits. Access to the dental school is a nig plus!

    Cons

    Crime rate in the neighborhood around campus; however, campus itself is gated. I always felt safe on campus.

    I have been working at University of Detroit Mercy full-time

    Pros

    Some of the people are good, just depends on what department you work in. The pay is acceptable, nothing fantastic.

    Cons

    Other side of the coin is that some people are not so great to work with. The benefits could be better as well.

    I worked at University of Detroit Mercy as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Small work family, so it made it easy to interact with one another. Felt like an equal.

    Cons

    Sometimes miscommunication between the higher heads and those of us working on a project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring interns.

    I have been working at University of Detroit Mercy

    Pros

    Great hands-on learning, awesome clinical experience with a diverse patient population. The staff is very knowledgeable and wiling to help. Classmates are friendly and everyone helps each other out.

    Cons

    Increased class size has made access to the sim lab a little hard. Often when I go into the lab to work on a project or practice, there is a class scheduled or others are using my station.

    I have been working at University of Detroit Mercy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Intelligent, friendly people to work with.
    An organization not focused on profit, but on making the world a better place.
    The mission is truly at the heart of the University, not just corporate blather.
    Tuition remission (free education) is a great benefit.
    Beautiful campus (McNichols Campus).

    Cons

    Budgets are perpetually tight (at least in my years there), and staffs are therefore asked to do a lot. But administrators understand this. Although McNichols Campus is beautiful, the immediate area is not the nicest (Ferndale, a 10-minute drive, is a nice town, however).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I appreciate management's understanding that such tight budgets and staffs can only do so much. I wish management would make the effort to ask front-line employees what improvements could be made.

    It's a small university. You get to know everyone. Everyone is pretty nice.
