    I have been working at Fairview Health Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work/life balance is ok. There are times when you will be expected to work more, but that comes with the job.

    Cons

    There is not enough planning at the organization. Everyting seems to be left to the last minute, then everyone has to rush to get the job done. We do the same things each year, so you would think there would be a good process in place to anticipate the upcoming work.

    Advice to Management

    You really need to set up a process to plan for upcoming events - you have been in business for over 100 years, you should know what needs to be done.

    Pros

    Great mission. Great vision. Great Leadership. Great people. Fairview has a great culture and what could be more rewarding than giving back to the community while getting paid fairly in a great environment.

    Cons

    Confusing and ever changing benefits. Difficult and over engineered annual review process. Inconsistent goal setting process that feeds annual review process.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on engaging employees and less on a painful annual review process. Focus on metrics in all areas of the business. New leadership in various areas are great changes.

    Pros

    Fairveiw is a great place to work good pay and good benefits. Great place if you have a family and there is always a chance to move up . I your looking for a good place well fairview will be for you.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Staff is pretty easy to work with, decent benefits and using Epic is easy to learn. Overall not a bad place.

    Cons

    Management is all over the place, lack of consistency, some favortism and the tend to place managers in positions to manage small groups of people in which they have no idea what the groups duties are. Focus to much on managements "degree" rather than the their ability to manage people, i.e...are they really a good fit for the job.

    Advice to Management

    You should know your position inside and out. Be consistent and know what your employees processes and job duties. Nothing is worse than having a manager who has no idea what you actually do on a daily basis or understand the flow and process.

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits for a nonprofit system Well established business M Health is a solid academic research facility High employee engagement/pride in their work

    Cons

    Chronic understaffing in support positions (admin, RN, housekeeping), eroding morale Inconsistent managerial standards Overbuilt for market, so trying to cut costs everywhere they can Lack of communication interdepartmentally Lack of management vision

    Advice to Management

    You're not trimming the fat, you're starving your organization to death. Quit redecorating and building new buildings and put some money into your staff; over the last five years the place has been hemorrhaging staff secondary to burnout.

    Pros

    Have a way with encouraging faithfulness. You really want to believe in this company. We have some very smart people on the teams.

    Cons

    A lot of people that hide under the radar, do nothing and get rewarded because they kiss up. Why they are still here...no one knows, we also have dirty management practices where managers talk badly very openly and in most cases for no reason against individuals to other individuals and managers which makes for a dirty practice when it comes to talent.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat, we have dead weight both on the teams and some of them are the haughty managers that are making the workforce TOXIC due to their puffed up status to their bosses, you need to look under the fluff and see what makes the clock work.
