    I worked at Detroit Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is good. It can be a great learning environment if you choose to pursue it.

    Cons

    The scheduling can be a problem for people NOT going to school for a higher degree.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not give all the schedule perks to the people going to school. I went to school and worked full time and nobody gave those of us going to school at the time all the schedule preferences.

    I have been working at Detroit Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The patients you care for and the coworkers.

    Cons

    Before the company went from non profit status, i had found my dream job. I loved everything about working there. Since our status change to for profit. You dont feel stabe in your position, you are not appreciated no matter how hard you work. There is favoritism between managment and staff. Your outta luck if you are not one of the favorites, privledged assignment and scheduling. The health system is all about profits now not about caring for the patients. We have the cheapest supplies ever and are always understaffed or have too many patients to care for adequately. Everyday after you work a 12 hour shift you feel like a truck has hit you. Mandatory education which is fine but you have to do it on your own time at home. Moral is in the gutter and no one seems to care about the nurses. I do NOT reccomend this as a place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Respect, fairness, appreciation and some love for your staff. Stop being so punitive and setting us up for failure.
