    Pros

    People are very nice, most very knowledgeable about their work. Changing healthcare, great benefits, open to process change, better than other area hospitals and health type of companies. Good cubicle size, good access to printers.

    Cons

    Some facilities and hardware groups can be hard to work with, they can be unorganized. No cafeteria in the IT building but local places to grab lunch. Same as all places, some lifers need to go but they tend to cling together and not bother with others too much.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving us clear direction - focus on more Value type of projects. Have quarterly Meetings with direct employees

    Pros

    Great values, good opportunities, good attitude towards patients and employees. Compensation is competitive.

    like all Health Care Organizations, they are having to trim budgets and reorganize. Recent change in leadership after relationship with Accretive. Repairing and rebranding their image.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with the Fairview Values, continue to engage employees as your stake holders. Strive to raise your customer service to the highest level of excellence in these competitive markets.

    The best senior administrative team around. Very approachable. Fair. Free employee parking. Small community hospital feel, even though we are growing. Everyone is friendly because they love their jobs. Would (and do) recommend this hospital both as a patient and as an employee.

    Construction currently, but management is responsive to needs; noise levels, safety issues, suggestions.
