    Pros

    Good place to work, collaborative atmosphere in laboratories, Fairview management was willing to assist in issues as needed.

    Cons

    At the time I worked there, there really weren't any downsides to it. I liked working there and only left because I was recruited to a job that was much closer to where I lived.

    Advice to Management

    Align the laboratories so that they all fall under the same service line; include research labs as well.

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

    Pros

    pays the bills until you find a place and a boss that you actually WANT to work for

    Cons

    low standards
    formal leadership gets drunk with their employees and if you don't join them, you're bullied
    when you complain about the bullying and poor office etiquette, it gets worse, not better
    the raises are pathetic
    health benefits are expensive on the paycheck and out of your pocket
    real concerns about patient safety doesn't seem to be accounted for
    no communication from leadership
    must be in a clique to not have your lunch stolen from the refrigerator
    suggestions aren't listened to
    ...the list goes on

    Advice to Management

    Shrink the size of your head and realize that you don't know everything. Ask for suggestions, listen, and communicate. Saying that you don't "micro manage" is just an excuse to be lazy. Get over yourself and when you have to make decisions based on zero experience, do a little research and ask the people who will be directly affected by the change. Take some Organization Development classes...maybe take any management classes.
