Lots of changes to a great program
CD Counselor II (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJanuary 6, 2016
Had been a good place to work, but after director Jeff Powers retired the current management is floundering. Lots of staff changes in the past 6 months. Too top heavy and changes take too long. Counselors go out of their way to get the job done and serve the clients in the best ways they can. Unfortunately management doesn't seem to care about the client experience and it's largely "filling beds" and "don't rock the boat" mentality leaving staff between a rock and a hard place. Also no one knows about the program unless it's word of mouth. There apparently is no way to get an advertising budget. Web presence is largely non-existent. Sad.

Can be a highly stressful place to work.
Denied Claims Rep (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNDecember 21, 2015
The employees had very nice break rooms with vending machines, several microwaves, a couple of refrigerators, and a small library of paper back books. The building had 3 floors and each floor had a break room like this.
Pros
Was allowed 2 breaks a day along with a 30 minute lunch.
Cons
Pay wasn't the best but at the time I was there the benefits were good.

Patient Represenative in Scheduling

A scheduler does more then just schedule appointments for patients. Schedulers also take phone calls to leave messages to Doctors, enter demographic information, verify insurance information and transfers calls where needed
Pros
Co-workers

Sitting all day

Utilization Review & Revenue Cycle Specialist (Current Employee) –  400 Stinson Blvd NE, Minneapolis, MNNovember 11, 2015
Like working for Fairview. Would like to increase wages and work closer to home. However, I need a more challenging position and more variety. I Like working with Patients and Insurance Companies and getting the information they need to support their up-coming procedures and getting that prior authorization. This makes me feel a real sense of accomplishment and utilizes my clinical background
Pros
Always a campaign / fund raiser going on, creating some special activties
Cons
Too far to drive, too many monotonous accounts to work, would like more interesting cases.

Everyone has one foot out the door
nurse (Current Employee) –  Oxboro, Bloomington,MNNovember 3, 2015
Used to be a nice clinic to work at. New and always changing leadership who do not care, has resulted in a major loss of good employees and what seems to be impossible at getting and keeping new employees. Turn over is high and morale is at an all time low.
Pros
Co wokers and MD's are nice
Cons
Always work short, get pulled to dept regardless of training, no breaks, always leaving late, supervisors who are cold and uncaring

Culture of Fairview has declined due to the creation of the North, South and Central Regions
Quality Analyst (Former Employee) –  North RegionOctober 13, 2015
Worked for Fairview for 15+ years. Had a excellent experience when working in clinic setting as well as the first seven years of quality department. Fairview systems changed to regions and the new north region quality department leadership is not desirable. The number one reason people leave a job is due to management.

Providers are easy to work with
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn Park, MNOctober 13, 2015
A typical day at work is busy daily work while rooming patients, giving shots and doing PA's/ Refills. I learn how to multitask on a busy day. Work with providers and teammates. Managment was supportive. Some listen and some didn't. my cowokers were easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was sometime working short. the most enjoyable part of the job was working with patients.
Pros
interacting with patients and getting to know them
Cons
busy pediatric clinic

Fast paced with a few slow moments
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) –  Hudson, NhSeptember 28, 2015
It's a fun place to be at, just be ready too hit the ground running from the second you clock in to the second you clock out. The residents are always fun to be around though, even if they do have their little quirks here and there and they can be a handful at times, even when you don't work with them directly.

Ability to work from home

The most enjoyable part of this job is working with the great staff (fellow coders, doctors and other administrative staff).

micromanaging, lack of communication

Contractors aren't meant to thrive in this environment. It's best to be placed permanently.

Very disorganized environment. Contractors are easily thrown under the bus.
