I have been working at Fairview Health

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

Conslike 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 Senior ManagementStick 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.

Leading Edge Type of Work, Great People, Nice Co-Workers, Professional with Casual Attitude

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at Fairview Health

ProsPeople 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.

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

Customer Service Rep

Patient Service Representative (Former Employee)
Edina, MN

I worked at Fairview Health part-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe 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.

ConsNot much opportunity to advance. Had to work every weekend. I think it would have been better to rotate weekend shifts.

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

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

Nursing Station Technician (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

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

ProsGreat 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).

ConsMost 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
