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

    Pros

    A workday is very diverse, and includes all aspects of testing including specimen collection, order entry, and test resulting. It's great to see the patients and know where your specimens come from. Management works with you on process improvement and open to suggestions. Very approachable. Nurses and other care providers are great to communicate with for problem resolution, and clarification. Cheap, quality healthcare options if you don't mind staying in the Fairview network. Plenty of overtime opportunities.

    Cons

    Again the fast pace means time management is key, so there is a constant focus on catching all problems early on for a quick turn around time.

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

    Pros

    Caring co-workers, flexible work hours, decent benefits overall, good visibility to upper management, wear many hats and have lots of responsibilities

    Cons

    Too much decentralization due to M&A; however, management is working on centralizing processes. Corporate needs to put their foot down on some of the subsidiary management teams that tend to do things "their way".

    Advice to Management

    When acquiring another entity, try to do a better job at laying the groundwork for centralization once on-board.

    Pros

    Caring leadership and staff that work together with a shared focus on patient care. Collaborative teams and volunteers that respect the contributions that each person/position brings.

    Cons

    Healthcare reform and challenges of ongoing outside influences on the industry. I was sad to see some great leaders leave FRH in 2014 but I really don't have many cons to share. Im thankful for the wonderful people and the years I had at Fairview.
