Business Operations Assistant (Current Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – August 12, 2014
Pros: amazing co-workers and was involved in multiple aspects of the project
Cons: temporary employement
I enjoyed working here, had great co-workers, and learned a lot. I was brought on the team to help with our internship program and Super User program. I interviewed, on-boarded, off-boarded, and observed over 200 students this past summer. In order to accomplish the large number of students I had to work closely with our Human Resource representative. – more... The hardest part of the job was to make sure all the units that were going to start using the new applications had coverage. Student scheduling was a major issue at times but was dealt with accordingly to ensure we had adequate coverage on the unit. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with my co-workers and being able to take part in both sides of the program. I was able to play a role in the HR department and recruit, interact and help the students, and plan the activation process with my team. – less
medical provider (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – August 7, 2014
Poor management, high staff turn over, unable to get time off for family events, patient safety did not come first, managers allow dangerous practice turning a blind eye or covering up patient injury or death. Hospital is really run by nurse managers, doctors are either to busy or just powerless to effect change. Benefits are good but the culture is – more... terrible, Back biting and back stabbing is not only the norm but is encouraged.... very sad. – less

MiChart Summer Intern (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, Michigan – July 24, 2014
As a temporary summer intern at the University of Michigan Hospital System, I provided "at the elbow" support during their "go live" for Epic's electronic medical records system.

Together we – more... solved tech problems on the fly and ensured the University of Michigan staff felt confident using the new system. – less
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – June 30, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits and co-workers
Cons: short/non-existent brakes, high stress
Fast paced care with acutely ill patients. Collaborative care with an emphasis on effective communication. Stressful position requiring a lot of multitasking, but rewarding when a patient recovered and was able to be discharged. Very inviting and friendly work environment, excellent management.

Payment Posting (Current Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – January 27, 2014
Pros: friendly work environment
Cons: healthcare and benefits for temperary workers
I've learned many new job tasks and taken on a lot of new duties through out the day. After learning how to use the new MiChart system that was installed recently through out the University of Michigan I was able to use those skills to do many more jobs and help my other work associates with new jobs and tasks. I genuinely enjoy the freedom and autonomy – more... within the workplace. – less

Mission-driven organization with academic medicine culture
Director of Communications (Current Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – January 9, 2014
UMHS is a typical academic medical center. There are many opportunities to be engaged in work to improve and save lives. If you bleed "maize and blue" this is a great place to work and Ann Arbor is an exciting place to live.
Undergraduate Research Assistant (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – December 10, 2013
Pros: state of the art technology
Cons: unpaid or funded with stipends
This is a typical medical laboratory experience. It was too tedious for me, but if you're determined to become a physician this is an adequate opportunity to get exposure to the medical research process.
Communications Operator (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – October 30, 2013
Pros: ability to work extra hours, due to a lot of overtime offered
Cons: poor work-life balance
A typical day could vary. At any time, you could be answering a phone call for someone inside of the hospital calling in a distress code that needs to be escalated, to giving someone turn-by-turn directions to any one of the satellite clinics/offices.
A very productive and diverse workplace, where there is much to learn and many ways to advance throught the institution.
Client Services - Phlebotomy - Laboratory (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MI – September 23, 2013
Pros: great benefits (i.e. health, pto and paid holidays) and great people to work with.
Cons: times could be difficult if there was a freeze on jobs and we needed help.
Each day was different because we would rotate jobs. It was a high pace work environment with plenty of challenges throughout the day. I learned what teamwork was as well as my work ethic which I acquired by the examples that were set before me by management. We had a very hard working team that enjoyed working together. We would always have potlucks – more... for birthdays or if someone was promoted to a different department. The hardest part of the job was finding solutions for some of the problems. The most enjoyable part was having such a diverse work place with many ways to learn and room for advancement. – less
