    Pros

    the healthcare benefits are top notch, it covers a family for just a very small amount a month, in this economy you cant beat it, the cto is awesome, you start out at 7 per pay period hours that goes into a bank for your personal use, great!

    Cons

    it seems that if you have a problem with a co worker you really have no where to go, you can report it to your supervisor and nothing ever gets done, then you go to hr and nothing happens again and before you know it the horrible person who has been harrassing you knows that they can get away with anything, it gives them power, they can make you miserable evey day and there isnt any recourse, people are afriad to tell now, no sense in telling, nothing will happen

    Advice to Management

    make people accountable for their actions, no excuses, the workplace should be a safe place to go, not a place that stresses you out just walking in for the day, you should not have to look over your shoulder wondering if you are being watched by someone who just wants to get their co workers in trouble to make themselves feel better, and since these individuals have so much time on their hands maybe they should be held responsible for the job they arent doing

    I worked at Detroit Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I liked gaining knowledge in different facets of the company and learning about new topics or how to do new things. I really enjoyed helping others, whether it’s co workers, or patients.

    Cons

    It's hard to help everyone at the same time. You would like to please everyone but sometimes its hard when dealing with different characteristics.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn’t always understand how much time particular tasks demand so I suggest patience because admins try to multitask as much as possible.
