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

    Pros

    Large company with plenty of opportunity.

    Cons

    After integrating with Health East it seems like benefits are not going to be as good in the upcoming years to match Health East.

    I have been working at Fairview Health Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good company and brand recognition
    - Some great people work here
    - Health Care coverage appears above par for the cost

    Cons

    - Management takes years to address problem employees
    - Far too many service outages to the business
    - Too much work and no prioritization from leadership leads to work-life balance feeling impossible and sub-par results
    - Senior leaders don't set a vision or lead (other than saying "industry best"), as much as nod along and set unrealistic deadlines
    - Bi-weekly fire drills, yet the expectation is no project work can slip
    - Have yet to see a strategic project delivered within the 5 On's, due to lack of prioritization and bandwidth issues
    - PMO lacks specialization, and PMO leaders have a check-box mentality vs. a value add mentality
    - Staff culture is not one of innovation, but keeping things as they are; presenting challenges to move the organization into new technologies and align with leaders vision of industry best

    Advice to Management

    Get the priorities straight; 20+ strategic projects equals no strategic projects. Slow down, stop making unrealistic promises that cannot be delivered upon just to get the effort approved, and fix known foundation issues before taking on major efforts.

    Pros

    This is a hard one to answer.

    Cons

    Middle management and team leaders are out of touch with workforce. Most job tracks are dead ends; the promise of promotion is mentioned only as a means to appease workforce, yet never is it delivered. Bad for morale, bad for careers, bad for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    When was the last time you were on the front lines?

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

    Pros

    Nice staff to work with. Hard working.

    Cons

    It is impossible to ever advance or find a more rewarding job within Fairview unless you have some major connections. They don't really care who you are- you are a number. Definitely have plenty of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Lessen the upper management and worry more about the people that actually do the work
