    I have been working at Fairview Health Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company culture. I enjoy working in a rural community and a diverse patient population. I work across inpatient, outpatient, and home care. Fairview's policies and mission aligns with my personal values. Encouraged to assist people (patients, visitors, employees) and provide a welcoming and supportive environment. I am never approached regarding productivity and I am autonomous in my treatment decisions. Recommendations and concerns considered and acted on immediately if appropriate. Continuous improvement on procedures and environment following employee recommendations. CEO seeks interactions with employees and facility creates employee appreciation activities (i.e. Christmas tea party, outdoor picnic). I feel comfortable talking to our Supervisor, Director, and Department Manager on an individual level. We are kept up to date with Fairview policies, changes, and insurance requirements. Documentation software aids in efficiency and ease of documentation. Definitely supportive environment and highly recommend.

    Cons

    Working in rural community requires long drive from city or relocation to rural area with limited shopping and child care (note: not really a con against Fairview). I do not like having PTO for sick, holiday, and vacation combined and low 3% sick leave encouraged. The low 3% does not allow me to stay home if children sick and provides 3 days of sick leave a year while working 10 hour shifts. This is not enough as I frequently work with pediatrics and am ill frequently from close contact. If I had minimal patient contact or worked only with the adult population this 3% probably would not be as much of an issue for my personal health. The company is supportive if you have an illness or a family member that is ill and encourage and assist in FMLA paperwork. Pay is decent but does not involve holiday pay for all federal holidays and annual wage increases (raises) are minimal and do not consider increases in cost of living.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to appreciate employees and patients. Consider changing 3% unscheduled PTO for sick pay especially for employees working in direct patient care and/or pediatric population. Consider increasing holiday pay to cover federal holidays. Consider an increase in annual raises because the current wage increase does not account for increases in cost of living.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Great people. Training in awesome. Everyone works as a team and is always willing to lend a hand. Not much drama. Great location. Fairview cares about their employees and really try’s to show that.

    Cons

    Scheduling is hard because they schedule 3 months in advance. So taking time off is hard because you need to know your plans for 6 months from now.

    I worked at Fairview Health Services part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, clean building, insurance plan is mediocre

    Cons

    Egotistical supervisors, who lack people skills. Human Resources is not neutral and very bias in incident investigations. Company pits Doctors against nurses, nurses against support staff, leading to very unhealthy work environment.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to drilled down and drain the swamp. I honestly don’t think half these managers/supervisors have ever seen a black person let alone work with one. Frequent management turnover, but usually after they have lost very good employees due to bias managers. Wasted time!
