    Pros

    You are able to work closely with the clients. The counseling staff and youth workers work closely together to provide the best course of action for the clients.

    Cons

    There are times that workers are held responsible for clients misbehaving/ breaking the rules. Upper management, on occasion, will not support or back up the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to listening to staff.

    Pros

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

    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.

    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 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.
