    I worked at Fairview Health Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Engaged staff and leadership--everyone participates is resolving issues and achieving goals.
    Awesome sense of community in a remote setting, but still close enough to metropolitan areas for a nice drive...
    A lot of community events and involvement in public health and healthcare education.

    Cons

    It is a hidden jewel....

    I worked at Fairview Health Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary. Team included professional and highly qualified staff. Overall organization consists of well-intentioned medical personnel. Proud to be part of this company.

    Cons

    Management played favorites with certain employees. Ironic that Communications department was led by such poor communicators. High turnover continues to this day. The joke was that we should install a revolving door. High stress, manufactured drama. Management drove away great employees that should have stayed.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with how you manage your employees and don't play favorites - or at least make it a bit less obvious. Stop being passive aggressive with your team and they will respect you.

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth, very large organization, driven and motivated employees.

    Cons

    Challenges with leadership the past few years - Fairview is now merging with UMP which will result in long term changes in the next few months. Managers could do better to develop their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Career development.

    I worked at Fairview Health Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Talented employees who desire to be of service

    Cons

    Weak management skills, favoritism, manipulative environments, under staffed, expectation of unpaid overtime, infrastructure is VERY outdated, high turnover, virtually no effective team building/training/problem solving, NO rewards for hard work (sometimes the standard lip service Thank You)

    Advice to Management

    Consider an appropriate/comprehensive/multi disciplinary team building approach instead of desperate attempts to quickly meet compliance. Do NOT continue to communicate regularly with ONLY a few key people. Show at least a minimum of regard for the experience and training of employees

    I have been working at Fairview Health Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Love my co workers. Close to my home. Doctors know what they are doing. I sit by a window. My work is easy.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Low morale. Not concerned about team building. No room for growth. Favoritism. Doctors pay is production based which can be lead to unethical decision-making. Benefits are amongst the worst compared to other large healthcare systems in the area. So cheap that they won't supply staff with plastic cutlery or coffee. Changed maternity benefits so that you have to take 4hours of PTO for any doctor appointments even if your appointment only takes 1 hour. No paid holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Focus your attention on the insanely high turnover rate. Grow your staff so they take pride in their work.

    Pros

    most questions asked were about job qualifications. interviewed with two people from lab and then met with hr.

    Cons

    they offered less than what other company in the field is offering. Annual increase is not that much either. The company doesn't value loyalty.

    Pros

    Excellent electronic medical record tools. Support staff hard working and part of the team excelling at patient care.

    Cons

    Work Expectation is to see a patient every 20 minutes. 36 hours patient/provider face to face contact per week and 4 hours for documentation and correspondence is not adequate. Need to address acute, chronic and preventative care at every visit. Staff meetings are over lunch or before or after work- time.
