    Pros

    Working for a Health Services organization can be rewarding.

    Cons

    People are not very open and inviting, too closed off with a cube atmosphere. Their technology is way behind and they don't have software to support the work. Things move very slow and management doesn't have time for hands on training.

    Advice to Management

    More hands on

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

    Pros

    Great co workers, decent benefits and pay, flexible schedule. Love the extra perks like discounts on tickets, etc.

    Cons

    They will set a position as casual, even if you will work full-time hours, as a means to avoid providing benefits (doubt this is the same in every department). Don't have the tools to do the job. Additional expectations and responsibilities expected above already full work load.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees over the bottom line and you will likely see less turn over. Better communication between management and employees also would go a long way.

    Pros

    Smart people. Ultimately most people in the organization are focused on making sure patient care is the best it can be.

    Cons

    Non-clinical side of the business lacks good leadership culture. They expect people to "just do what I say". Thinking outside the box is initially encouraged and then stopped or penalized based on the leaders' pet projects. It seems the company is full of people who either hate Fairview or love it. It's like a developing country with no middle class, if they fix it they will be a top performing company.

    Advice to Management

    Fairness, accountability and consistency could go a long way.
