    Former Employee - Executive Assistant 

    I worked at Detroit Medical Center full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you enjoy working for a large company there are many opportunities for patient care related positions. Great benefits.

    Cons

    No company loyalty for people who have spent more than 20 years with them. Managers need training on how to be effective leaders. Raises are very low and percentage based.

    Advice to Management

    Take diversity classes and learn how to make your staff feel appreciated.

    I worked at Detroit Medical Center full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Amazing staff in direct care. Quality driven care with compassion.

    Cons

    Transitional management with transitional expectations. Personal career path of leadership outweighs team building and communication.

    Advice to Management

    Detroit seems to be a learning laboratory for leaders as they move through layers of leadership. While change is expected it should not be the daily norm.

  4. "Terrible leadership with no direction and zero accountability for their poor decisions."

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Detroit Medical Center

    Pros

    The people you work with are truly there to make a difference.

    Cons

    Leadership. I’m not sure where the positive opinion of the CEO is coming from, but my guess is the positive ratings is from the prior CEO now mayor Mike Duggan (who was by far the best leader DMC has seen). The current CEO is not visible and does not care about employees. Middle managers are slow and complacent. People are laid off leaving gaps in the system - so you hire new people to cover the gaps. Now you have too...

    Advice to Management

    Tenet - do yourself a favor and fire the leadership team and start fresh. Leaders - talk to the team and find your performers v under-performers. Reward or hire performers and let go of your underperfromees so you are not forced to have another round of layoffs. Your one feedback meeting with your employee should not be during their annual review. If that is the case then you have failed. I sincerely hope you read...

    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Detroit Medical Center full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    So happy I’ll be moving on from this poor excuse for a healthcare system. The positive reviews you see are not true at all. Everyone is overworked and miserable.

    Cons

    Lack of administrative support or care. Administration passes the buck on important tasks that are vital for department operations, and those they pass the buck to do not get compensated. When you state the truth about this it’s ignored-because they do not care. Those at the top are only concerned about themselves. It’s sad and pathetic.

    Advice to Management

    Quit taking credit for what you don’t do. Pay those who are saving the departments your supposed to run. Quit being ungrateful elitists.
