    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many educational opportunities. Provided employee appreciation days with massages, ice cream, and snacks often. Very diverse staff. Allows nurses to work with very educated specialists including pharmacists.

    Cons

    Poor organization of chemotherapy orders and processes. Many loop holes for errors. Cockroaches were also a problem due to being in the building with the DMC. McClaren takeover changes the working environment for the worst. Doesnt have that great of medical benefits. Managers leave early all the time without consequences or notifying their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Be more democratic in regards to making changes. Develope a board of nursing staff advisors to help make decisions about changes instead of making them yourself behind the scenes.
