    I worked at University of Michigan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great onsite CME opportunities (if your department supports PA attendance) & overall good resourses to provide quality care. Quality nursing & support staff on day shift.

    Cons

    Many departments/sections do not utilize PAs/NPs to full capabilities. Parking is expensive & not convenient - plan an extra 30 minutes to get from car to job site & vice versa. Poorly staffed on off shifts.

    I have been working at University of Michigan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It would be a great place to work with decent management.

    Cons

    Staff morale is bad in Med School Administration. The current management and leadership is the worst I've ever worked for. There's an inexcusable lack of fairness, appreciation, and respect for staff. Among other weirdness, there's a very disturbing trend where people with no experience get the best career opportunities and promotions, creating bad feelings and hurting unity. The Dean's Office is a disaster - it's hard to tell who, if anyone, is in charge there and the normal rules, policies, and conduct are routinely ignored or overruled. It's like the Wild West. Stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention. It sucks here and you're going pay a price for that eventually.
