    I have been working at Fairview Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love working with such close contact to the actual caregivers. It did feel like the work I was doing could directly impact the care patients were receiving. There were also a handful of coworkers who were downright brilliant - but, unfortunately, they weren't always the ones in the management positions.

    Cons

    I was working as an analyst in a relatively new group. My coworkers were really nice, but I wasn't convinced that the team had much of a solid vision. We seemed to be another cog in the giant wheel of healthcare spending, and weren't really working towards any greater good.

    Pros

    The pay checks usually clear, but don't expect them to ever get larger.

    Cons

    The outlook for this company is grim; there is no money to do anything unless it is putting out a fire. In fact, that is the only way anything gets done is if there a breach, a failure, an emergency.
    The most unqualified people are watching the most critical systems. The most overqualified people are doing mundane tasks. There is no room to move, no chance to advance, no plan for improvement or training unless you are hired in far below your market value (then enjoy the training while you can get it).
    Things move slow where there are no fires. Vendors are brought in to do the serious, fun, resume-building work because noone wants to be set up for the blame game if something goes wrong.
    The best employees just disappear. No explanation and the ones left behind are often the ones that got fired somewhere else.
    This is simply the most toxic environment I have ever witness and I am ashamed to tell people I worked here as long as I did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of management, at least in the IT department, needs to be reevaluated. There is a lot of unprofessional vendor favoritism going on and most decisions are not being made with Fairview's long-term best interest in mind.

    Disapproves of CEO
