Excellent place to work, with some negative aspects.
Building Engineer (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – April 27, 2015
In spite of it's urban setting, this university has a good safe environment.
University police are fully-enpowered officers of the law, since they all are graduates of the Detroit Police Academy.
All colleges are highly-regarded, especially the School of Medicine.
Some on-site housing is available, but a large percentage of the student body is commuters.
Parking is inadequate, and no employees are entitled to free parking.
Parking structures and lots on site are both pay as you go and payroll deductible. Either is costly.
The work environment varies from location to location, due to aging facilities and new ongoing construction.
Physical resources management is highly capable.
Pay scale is negotiated with union contracts, as are benefits.
Benefits package is competitive, and so is salary.
Extremely interesting place to work.
Excellent reason to use car-pooling, but no formal arrangements in place for this purpose.
Safe environment, good schooling.
Inadequate and expensive parking.
