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

    Pros

    Fairview offers a decent benefits package with tuition reimbursement, certification bonuses, and competitive pay. The decision model involves staff nurses and leadership seems to care about their employees for the most part.

    Cons

    At times it has proven extremely difficult to receive the benefits that Fairview offers.

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to your employees. The happiness of staff will impact patient outcomes which will impact the financial well being of an organization.

    I worked at Fairview Health Services part-time

    Pros

    Easy job answering room service calls from patients. Some downtime/free time between calls during slow periods.

    Cons

    It could get really busy during meal times. The management was constantly changing and the employees weren't always notified of new managers.

    Pros

    Wish I could find some pros

    Cons

    Constant restructuring, people are disposable, eventually your job will be eliminated. News articles down play the people they have laid off. If you are a Healtheast employee your job will be restructured and given to a Fairview employee, with a different title.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, what will be done will be done, they don’t care what the staff think.

    Pros

    Fair salaries, have been around a long time

    Mergers are always tough, but switching managers multiple times in a year is a bit much.

    Advice to Management

    Keep lines of communication open.
