Great place to work. Feeling of community on campus.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Detroit, MI

I worked at University of Detroit Mercy full-time

ProsWork-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!

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

It's an acceptable place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Dental Student

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at University of Detroit Mercy

ProsGreat 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.

ConsIncreased 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to work, but budgets are tight and pay is low.

McNichols Campus Administration (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

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

ProsIntelligent, 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).

ConsBudgets 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 Senior ManagementI 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.

Decent.

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at University of Detroit Mercy

ProsEveryday was a new day. I loved working with the students and seeing how much energy and life they had for higher learning. The co-workers at the University of Detroit Mercy were great to work with. Everyone was very friendly and helpful when I came on to work for this university. I was always welcomed by the staff and people I worked with everyday. The territories around the University of Detroit Mercy may not have been the greatest but there was always a strong interest is attaining a higher education, especially at the University of Detroit Mercy.

ConsOpportunity for advancement was not there.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore opportunity.
