    I have been working at Henry Ford Health System full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance is decent if you set boundaries. You can make your experience what you want. Some very talented leaders and dedicated people, and the impact to the community is great.

    Cons

    Culture definitely feels a bit outdated. Pay and benefits are so-so. Lack of prioritization and capacity management. Many people have been promoted for length of time served. A lot of good talent leaves after 2-4 years.

    I have been working at Henry Ford Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good hourly pay. Not much else.

    Cons

    Ridiculous nurse-patient ratios in the ER. I’ve had anywhere from 8-16 critical patients or 12-17 acute patients. Nights have barely any staff. Most of the nurses working haven’t been nurses for more than a few months or a year. Management does not care about patient safety or nurses’ sanity, they are told repeatedly about the short staffing and nothing is done. In fact more lay-offs happened after we complained. Also, there are barely any techs at all and they don’t even do vitals. The techs are staffed poorly as well so it’s overall just a constant cluster.

    Advice to Management

    Staff appropriately, offer incentive pay for people to work nights or cover shifts. Offer emergency pay when the staff is so low that patient safety is at risk. Be realistic about ratios during the interview process so people don’t sign on and then quit once they realized they’ve been duped.
