    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Fairview Health Services full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Many genuinely good, if misguided, people. Expensive quarterly off-site social activities for corporate communications employees.

    Cons

    Senior managers have spent their life in this organization. There's no outside perspective at all. Technology infrastructure was seriously outdated. The IT department was bloated and had no accountability. Glaring lack of tolerance for diversity in rural hospitals and those who knew better laughed it off and looked the other way. Infighting between Fairview and the U of M.

    Advice to Management

    You can do better. Invest in training for your corporate support staff. Stop rewarding the worst managers with promotions based on cronyism.

    Pros

    I enjoy the people I work with, salary is decent but not great, a lot of restructuring tends to go on and the relationship with U of M and and UMP gets to be confusing

    Cons

    The benefits aren't really that great in my opinion, the retirement plan is okay, but there is a pool of days to allot to both sick time and holidays/vacations, so if you get sick more often it really stings. Salaries could be more competitive.


  11. "Love"

    Pros

    Love this place! Great people! Great environment!

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say about working here
