    Pros

    Benefits and PTO for non-exempt employees.

    Cons

    Working in the world of healthcare can be frustrating. Lofty goals such as "solving healthcare" or "making health systems better for all" are nice mission statements, and sound philosophically appealing, but are also very difficult to see/measure real-world impact. Large system of red tape prevents ideas from being quickly implemented or even getting off the ground. A clear division between "faculty" and "staff".... Very little room for growth. Lots of lateral movement from department-to-department, but no clear linear path for the professional development of employees. Work can be boring and grow stagnant over time. Which is fine for some employees, mind-numbing for others. Parking passes are really expensive (and tend to rise in cost annually), and are a necessity if you wish to park anywhere remotely close to the building you work in.. and even then, you may be walking a fair distance.. Be sure to negotiate salary out of the gate. The Health System has no trouble paying employees fair salaries. However, once you are in your position there is no clear method of advancement outside of applying for a different position within the University.

    Advice to Management

    Intelligent/innovative employees can come from all walks of life. Simply because someone does not have a Ph.D. or M.D., does not mean that employee is not worthy of having ideas or contributing to the larger mission / objectives. Many times, "staff" is treated poorly due to the fact that they are not doctors.. although this is mostly a product of working in an academic environment.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, PTO time is very generous especially if you aren't sick a lot. Access to a lot of events/speakers/learning opportunities outside of your normal work. Overall it's a great place to work. If you are looking for a job to be at for a long time, as long as you are doing a good job, you can stay and retire here.

    Cons

    Hard to advance, not a lot of room for growth, especially in salary, very decentralized job satisfaction is highly dependent on where you work and who you work for. Sometimes coming across people who all they know is the "michigan way" of doing things.

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexibility, PTO, and scheduling. Opportunity to work with cutting-edge technology. They are very focused on family-centered care along with the well being of their employees.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of room for growth. Very hard to move "up the ladder" since those openings are few and far in between. Nursing management focuses too much on care plans, minute wording in policies rather than actual patient care.
