    Pros

    Work-life balance, benefits, employee engagement.

    I have been working at Fairview Southdale Hospital (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits (Medical, Dental, long/ term disability, 403b). Opportunities to change to different units in the hospital. A variety patient acuity and many learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Difficult to get vacation days approved. Internal strife between union politics and hospital policy.

    Advice to Management

    Use common sense instead of a check list to deal with incidence. Formal processes for petty incidence lead to poor moral.

    I worked at Fairview Southdale Hospital part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    some great co-workers and excellent doctors in the Emergency Department

    Cons

    poor management in the ED. Do not care about staff as individuals and verbalize such. No support and no assistance with work situations. Give vacation time in an odd way, such as 7 day vacation with the first 3 days of,f work the 4th, then give the remainder 3 off. Best staff leaving in droves. Would not be there as a patient myself.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the staff! Treat staff with respect. Listen to what you are told and are being asked for. Become engaged.

    I worked at Fairview Southdale Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not as many as you would think for a metro hospital facility

    Cons

    Management unsupportive of staff. FV is hisorically top heavy with management, but not always trained in healthcare or healthcare issues. Poor employee satisfaction surveys historically. Unsuportive work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Suppport your staff. We work hard to provide excellent service and care to the patients. Listen and pay attention to the employee satisfaction reviews, and DO something about thier ideas, suggestions, and or concerns about managment.
