    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Be more open to listening to staff.

    I have been working at Fairview Health Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with Fairview for about a year and I love it. I made a career change and Fairview has given me the opportunity to learn and grow with the company. My supervisors have been great since day one and they seem to really care about their employees and are constantly offering encouragement and advice. I couldn't be happier with the decision I made to start working with Fairview. I'm really looking forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead and I hope to stay working here for years to come!

    Cons

    I'm not sure that I could think of any cons. Some days are less busy than others if that counts!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. I like the direction the company is going. My managers make it easy for me to want to get up and come to work in the morning. Thanks for all that you do.

    The upper management need to leave the office more and see just how hard there team is working. for the most part not to many cons. If you are management the unions can suck to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Come and see what your staff is doing in there jobs. before you make a big change talk to your staff are doing the job. If you listen you will hear what they have to say.
