    Good Health Care Organization

    I have been working at Fairview Health

    Pros

    Great values, good opportunities, good attitude towards patients and employees. Compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    like all Health Care Organizations, they are having to trim budgets and reorganize. Recent change in leadership after relationship with Accretive. Repairing and rebranding their image.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with the Fairview Values, continue to engage employees as your stake holders. Strive to raise your customer service to the highest level of excellence in these competitive markets.

    I have been working at Fairview Health

    Pros

    People are very nice, most very knowledgeable about their work. Changing healthcare, great benefits, open to process change, better than other area hospitals and health type of companies. Good cubicle size, good access to printers.

    Cons

    Some facilities and hardware groups can be hard to work with, they can be unorganized. No cafeteria in the IT building but local places to grab lunch. Same as all places, some lifers need to go but they tend to cling together and not bother with others too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep giving us clear direction - focus on more Value type of projects. Have quarterly Meetings with direct employees

    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.

    I worked at Fairview Health

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
