Great workplace for companionship and communication
We all work together very closely and make work feel as if it is not stressful at all. In the event that something was going on personally at home with one of our coworkers we would even assist them outside of work.

Many good managers
Northville Health Center has a high employee turn over rate. Management does not appreciate employees and seems most interested in making the facility profitable. What a shame for a heath organization. Other facilities within the organization I have interviewed with seem to have better managers in place, who demonstrate a balance between all factions that produce a a great working environment and profitable bottom line.

Very fun place to work, they treat their employees very well
Working at Michigan Medicine has been a very pleasurable moment. The work environment is very rewarding, Knowing that you are making a difference in someone's life is amazing! the culture of being a Team is good encouragement to want to do more out of life. The management is Awesome they are truly there to help you threw life's struggles and have a solution to many problems, you can almost always count on management to be there for you in your time of need. The hardest part of working at Michigan Medicine is leaving the patients behind to go home, you go home with them heavy on your mind or carry them in your heart.

Interesting place to work
Depending on what department you're in, it can be a wonderful place to work. I was unfortunately not in one of those departments. Managers are the same - some are great; others are terrible. It's really a hit or miss situation. I recommend that applicants talk to the other people in the department to get an idea for the working environment.

Terrible place to work if your disabled
People sleep on the job. One man ran over a student and rather than being punished he was rewarded. Now he makes 10000 more a year.
If your disabled all you can get is a low end entry level position like a custodian. They are unwilling to make accommodations for disabled people in their Ewok training program.

They allow employees to discriminate against others who are disabled.

A lot of work
The research culture at UMich is cyclic, in that there is a style of writing papers, collecting data, and so on. While it might not be intellectually stimulating all the time, it is always busy.

Inconsistency
I’ve worked for the organization for many years. Supervision and HR are very inconsistent in policy and support, making it a very frustrating and stressful place to work. The organization is continually expanding. They do not seem to plan very well for this expansion often leaving areas poorly staffed with inexperienced workers as the good, experienced staff leave for a better, less stressful environment

Excellent Benefits
The tuition reimbursement program and 2:1 retirement matching were both excellent benefits that were given in addition to the quality health insurance.

I worked as Graduate Resarch Assistant for almost 2 years
Pros

Flexible time, diverse background, top-class research, smart people all around, good entrepreneurship spirits, beautiful campus, awesome football team, good food in the city


Cons


This is a very nice university with really nice faculty and staff. I can think of no cons in this university. If there is, it must be that it is not the best from the perspective of ranks, say US news.


Advice to Management


I can think of no advice to management. Keep the good work.

Management is horrible
Unless you have a masters forget working here! They think very little if the workforce.

The supervisors are terrible. It’s the training. They do not treat employees right. They have reach out programs that do nothing; if you can reach one they just shuffle you off.
Pros
Insurance
Cons
Horrible supervisors and management

Fantastic!
Every manager I’ve had in the nine years I’ve been here was supportive and offered several opportunities to grow. My opinions were valued and considered. I would recommend Anyone to work here. Benefits are excellent! Would like more opportunity to work from home, but being that U-M is a great employer!

most enjoyable part of the job
Laboratory personnel are team oriented and a joy to work with. There is much turnover due to this being a teaching lab in which employees further their experience and skill.

Demanding but energizing place to work
Michigan is a place that has high expectations but gives the support you need to meet those demands. In addition, it is a family-friendly place to work and also a place that encourages innovative thinking.
