Numbers Over People
Nurse (Former Employee), Bloomington, MnSeptember 24, 2014
Pros: good people doing the actual care.
Cons: no breaks, working short often, poor (if any) benefits, indifferent management
Fairview doesn't care about its employees. Turn-over is high, morale is low, and management has no clue how to fix it, nor do they appear to care.

Too top heavy
Transplant (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MNJune 16, 2014
Pros: local company
Cons: top heavy, low wages, unbalanced salaries
Fairview has the potential to be a fantastic place to work. However, administration is incredibly top heavy- meaning any decision takes months, and LOTS of money, to conclude.

One of the BIG drawbacks is PTO use. I have worked at other facilities where PTO is used for sick/vacation. However, even non-hospital employees use PTO for everything, including – more... holidays. This wouldn't be such a big problem, but as office employees, we are not ALLOWED to work on holidays, so unless we want to be unpaid for the day (or two, depending on the holiday), we must use PTO.

Another is the unbalanced salary. My job is a pretty skilled one- we must know very specific things. We are paid less (by an average of $4 an hour) than an administrative assistant in a clinic. Though we have fought for higher salary, we never get it. What we DO get is a lot of 'circle talk', but never any answers.

Also, for union employees, interviews are pretty much a formality. If you have seniority and have a word in your work history resembling something in the job you're applying for, it's yours. – less

Pay good/// Leadership is terrible
Lead Billing and Surgery Scheduling Coordinator (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNMay 7, 2014
Pros: money
Cons: managerial style
The mentality is simply loyalty at the measure of sitting in the same position even if you have an advanced degree for 10-15 years.

Pay was good... but co-workers smh --- there was no accountability that's all I can say

An excellent group of people to work with!
Patient Access Representative (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNApril 6, 2014
Pros: great work environment, great people to work with
Cons: cuts in department funds, cuts to employee benefits
A typical day at work involves dealing with many different types of people. This is both rewarding and challenging. I think that
I learned a great deal about working with the public, and I'd be confident in most any customer service role as a result. I was also able to work in various areas within the department, and gained experience in several areas – more... of the hospital. I had a wonderful group of coworkers here, and made several lifelong friends. Management underwent several changes during my time there. That, and just overall changes to the department as a whole have probably been the hardest thing about the job. Overall, though, I'd say that it was a great place to work. – less

Management sucks at Fairview
Radiology (Former Employee), Edina,MinnesotaMarch 29, 2014
Cons: politics, back-stabbing, extremely stressful!
I tried my best to work with these back-biting women only to be asked to leave my position after 7 years. I was a strong and very productive person there. I am currnetly working on a Bachelors dregree and because I was advancing quicker than the Idiot they hired as a Supervisor, they got rid of me over stupid little piddly things. I wasn't happy enough, – more... I did extra views (Rads request) against protocol. I was the best employee they had, it is definitely their loss. Save yourself the time and apply elsewhere. – less
