    Pros

    Most leaders genuinely care about the mission, visions and values of the organization. Non patient care employees do the best they can with limited resources to contribute to the improved health of patients.

    Cons

    Lots of budget cutting over the last several years and turnover over the last few years so not much innovation as occurred.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the mission of the organization. Patient care is #1 but don't forget about your employees.

  3. Not a bad company.

    Pros

    Fairview is a large, organized, Minnesota Healthcare company. In general the it seems like it's a nice place to work.

    Cons

    I disliked being forced to be part of a union. Also, there's a lot of bureaucracy, and the managers can be hit or miss.

    Pros

    Fairview awards fair market pay, and they study the market to ensure this is followed. There are opportunities for flexible hours and schedules. They like to offer education within the organization on the methodologies they want to use. I worked people!

    Cons

    Fairview is a large organization, so things can move slower than desired based on how far up new ideas or requests have to go for approval.

    Pros

    Flexibility with your schedule was the greatest benefit as well as overall friendly coworkers. Enjoyable and comfortable work environment. Overall mission is heartfelt and a place to be proud to be associated with.

    Cons

    Personal growth very subjective and tied to how well your manager liked you. Not metrics driven in any way. People are in positions not always due to competence but for political reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage managers to move to various areas within the company or at least within their area of expertise every handful of years (HR, Finance, Operations, etc). Managers staying in the exact same role for multiple years isn't always a great thing for themselves, the department, or the company. Bring in fresh faces, fresh ideas, and rotate managers to new roles.

    Pros

    The staff members are wonderful to work with. Other staff in the hospital are also great to work with. Working in any emergency room setting is very interesting and you never know what to expect from day to day.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to advance. Had to work every weekend. I think it would have been better to rotate weekend shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Rotate weekend shifts among staff or hire people that only want to work weekends. Increase opotunities to advance through training.

  11. Fairview Health has been a great place to work. Very flexible with schedule changes due to having schedulers 24/7.

    Pros

    Great people to work with (both management and co-workers), resources are pretty amazing compared to other locations I have worked at. There are many different ways to be involved in how the workplace runs (various groups that are nursing unit specific).

    Cons

    Most paraprofessional positions require that the person works day/eve, day/night, or straight nights, so the schedule is never really consistent. It takes a long time to put any changes into effect, but once implemented, the workers help improve processes on the nursing floor.
