a typical day at the University of Michigan hospital is great fours per day five days per-week. I learned that wearing gloves around food really helps to not let others get sick. My co-workers at work is okay sometimes they all have their ups and downs but they get along. My job is enjoyable and easy, I love going to work each and everyday just know – more... that I'm going to have a great day – less

Assistant to the Director (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – May 16, 2013
Great place to work, if you can get in. There is a great opportunity to advance your career in this setting. Parking is expensive and can be a hassle at times, especially around the hospital and central campus. The campus bus is a great alternative for getting around campus.
Highly motivated, driven, and competitive workplace with an emphasis on continued learning.

Pros: personal and plentiful interactions with prospective and current students, alumni, visitors, and high school counselors.
Cons: extended travel during late summer/early fall. work levels are very cyclical in nature.
What I enjoy most about my current position is the opportunity to meet people from diverse cultures and personalities from all over the world. I love making the difference in someone's decision to go to college, and I enjoy giving students the tools to make an informed decision. Opening someone's eyes to higher education can help them to see that opportunities – more... for continued learning are everywhere. I love the feel of community from working at a university, where everyone is equally as excited, fast-paced, and motivated to lead and continue their professional development as I am. – less

Research Investigator (Current Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – April 25, 2013
My research interests focus on developing novel agents that can induce the generation of human fetal red blood cell from adult hematopoietic stem cells and progenitors by reprogramming developmental beta-type globin gene regulation. Such agents can be potentially applied to the treatment of the patients with beta-globin disorders such as sickle cell – more... disease and beta-thalassemia, which arise from congenital defects in production of the adult beta-chain of globin. Our laboratory has found nuclear receptor TR2/TR4 is a repressor of the human embryonic epsilon- and fetal gamma-globin genes, which I have recently shown to directly bind to their promoters in adult erythroid cells. This discovery generated expectations for development of molecular intervention therapy for sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia by exploiting a specific regulatory pathway: inhibiting the repressor activity of TR2/TR4 is predicted to increase gamma-globin synthesis with possibly fewer toxic side effects, and therefore may be much more effective in treating sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia. – less
Information Representative (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – April 18, 2013
Cons: you might have to pay for parking.
I loved everything about here except for paying for parking. There are many resources for employees to benefit from. I enjoyed making new friends, the training classes, meeting new people, help those that needed it, and the management. What I did not like was paying for parking but it was ok besides that I can not think of to many negatives. This place – more... was the best place I have ever worked and concerned I will not find another place like this again. I have taken the office/clerical skills I learned from here and applied them to other employment. Nothing beats U of M. – less

Pros: working with enthusiastic individuals
As the Vice President of the Supply Chain Association a typical day consited of interacting with Industry executives, senior staff at the University and coordinating with student members with regard to events, plant tours and informational speakers. This further developed my communication, negotiation, and project management skills. I worked with dedicated, – more... enthusiastic students, which was the most enjoyable part of my job. The hardest was scheduling. Given the already busy nature of a students schedule, between classes and work, alining events to ensure maximum attendance was challenging. Overall, this position helps further develop and challenge my organizational, communication and leadership skills. – less
