Nursing Station Technician (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – May 8, 2018
They don't pay tuition reimbursement in the time frame they state they will. They won't grant requested vacation days if the unit does not meet core staffing numbers, so I haven't had the last 3 requests granted.They want employees to work "safe" but won't provide the equipment to make it happen. They keep taking benefits away, like holiday pay. It gets worse with every new CEO we have.
Worker (Current Employee) – Hudson, NH – May 7, 2018
Working with the elderly can be a lot mentally and emotionally to deal with. Some days go by very smooth but often times you can find yourself understaffed and struggling to accomplish tasks on time. Only some people acknowledge team work while others only care for themselves.
Relaxed and extremely interesting. Everyone is very nice.

Fairview Institute For Athletic Medicine is a fantastic place to work for people who are good with customer relations and love physical therapy. All that is necessary is a good attitude and attentiveness.
Business Office Supervisor (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – April 26, 2018
I learned a lot of Fairview. It provided me an opportunity to grow and learn. I decided I wanted to work in healthcare from my experience at Fairview. Working there allowed me to receive care there for my family it a good organization

Many of the employees have been at Fairview for a long time. Nothing wrong with that except they have a difficult time letting in new employees and adapting to change. They will and do circle around you and make your time at work miserable.
Not compensated for doing over and above my job responsibilities.

There are ways to get what you are looking for at Fairview but not every department will offer the same support, pay, or opportunities. In many areas a star performer will be treated the same as someone who barely meets expectations.
Management is really bad. You are treated like a minion. You make a mistake you are not friends with management, You have a target on your back. HR doesn't help out when you need them. There is no one to go to for help counselling to deal with the childish management. You either switch dept or look for a nother job. They will find a way to run you away.
SOME of the staff is always supportive and the pay is good
Director (Current Employee) – Burnsville, MN – March 18, 2018
Current work environment is not ideal in some areas of the organization,especially in the south region facilities. This needs to be dealt with sooner than later especially since it has been a known issues for years. As a company the direction the CEO is taking things appears to be a great direction. The progress is a bit too slow for the changes needed. There are many great people with great intentions working at Fairview and it will be exciting to see where and what progress they make in the coming years.
New CEO with a great vision
Merging is tough, communication can be better from senior leaders beyond CEO
Nurse (Former Employee) – Princeton, MN – March 7, 2018
Awful, subjective management. Cliques upon cliques.. The entire management system within the Northland location socialize outside of work and if you’re not into gossiping and doing things the way they’ve been done, then prepare for a rude awakening. Invited to “business” lunch where the only topic was current relationship issues within upper management. Not what I signed up for. Unprofessional and clearly lacking an innovative future. Fairview should very much consider a “restructuring” of the current, longstanding management. Their behavior is reprehensible and not at all in line with Fairview’s values.
Getting laid off come from out of the blue, how they eliminated staff was not based on years of service, work accomplishments or work knowledge. I would like to go back to work for Fairview but not in the department i left.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – January 24, 2018
not the best company for working hours, but somewhat stable , tends to lean toward the healthcare regulations , which vary which lead to job instability . a lot of employee's will work to get you fired, if they do not like you
Fairview is trying to be the biggest and they are losing track of what is important to their employees. They do not ask employees what matters to them in their job. No resolution to problems that creates to achieving success in your position.
