Pros

Close location to home. Good pay.

Too many managers. They don't know what it's like to work with patients anymore.

Advice to Management

Have no clue what it takes to run the floors and departments. Need to look at the issues in person. Not solve issues just on paper from there desks.

    Pros

    Some very good clinical people; good focus on patients/. Cross cultural programs are outstanding. The "My Voice/My Choice" patiet advocacy tool is a national leader.

    Cons

    Ridiculous expectations of time commitments; rigid schedules; arbitrary policies; nonfunctional HR system to address employee issues. Very behind the curve re: telecommunications among staff. Rigid hierachy that doesn't include sufficient female executives in the leadership sector

    Advice to Management

    Get out of Dearborn; drive around; talk to other systems; have lunch with your employees. Stop thinking the world begins and ends with Dearborn---move executive offices from the posh digs you currently have to somewhere where your employees actually work.

    Pros

    Location is probably the only good reason.

    Cons

    Employee moral is down, way down. Oakwood takes surveys constantly and a vast majority of employees give less than favorable opinions. However it is hard to understand how Administration comes up with scores that show favorable results (a good example of the politics in Admin).

    Advice to Management

    Terminate all outsourcing, hire competent management teams, look to your greatest assets (employees). Rebuild on a foundation "PRIDE", many employees are from the surrounding area and have family and friends that need a hospital to go to. If all employees were confident in the services and care offered, they would be more than happy to give favorable references.
