    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. Intermountain offers a pension, which is nice. Also, pretty much everyone who works in the Alta View OR is friendly and willing to help or teach. Very welcoming staff. We are also offered time-and-a-half for working overtime.

    Cons

    Small pay. Smaller than the rest of the valley. And even though the OR has many surgeries most days, there is only one shift scheduled, so the staff are also assigned to stay late on certain days, as well as take call. When you are on call, you stay until all the surgeries scheduled or added on are finished, even if that means that you worked from 7AM to 1AM nonstop. And sometimes they will still expect you to show up at 7AM for work the next morning after a shift like that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the staff's opinions and suggestions. We bring them up because we are unsatisfied with the work environment. Consider different options, and experiment different ideas until one is found that works.

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Focus is on IHC's mission, vision, and values. Staff are dedicated to provide the best care possible. In the ever-changing healthcare world, IHC has managed to stay a step ahead of the competition and thrive.

    Cons

    Turnover has increased, with the majority of those leaving due to mediocre salaries and non-existent raises. For a corporation that spends a fortune on beautiful hospitals and PR, it's surprising how salaries are not competitive, forcing highly-trained employees to look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees a wage commensurate with education and experience.

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In the hospitals and clinic, patients are seen as the top priority. Great environment if you're in the right department. Could pay a bit more like other healthcare organizations.

    Cons

    Corporate is money hungry and they make it pretty obvious. Threaten not to give yearly bonuses, and poor yearly raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using threatening as a scare tactic. And listen to the little people or they wont listen to you.

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    There's a lot of interesting work and the people are friendly and good to work with. For the most part it is a fun environment. Work schedules are flexible and there's a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Advancement is generally difficult. The quality of managers varies. If you have a good one, it's great, if not then find another job. There are a lot of politics and a culture that is resistant to change. The bureaucracy is getting worse with several new policies are added every month. Pay is based primarily on seniority and has little to do with performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the culture below the VP level.

    Pros

    Stability . Will be fun if you end up with a good manager

    Cons

    Promotions cant be a dream. Again, politics plays a huge role. When one vice president gets control of major IT projects, he promotes all the guys close to him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For heaven sake, have some flexibility and process for promoting people in IT division. We understand that IHC is not a IT company and promotions are slower, but atleast establish a proper process.

    Former Employee - Houskeeper in Provo, UT

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Consistent hours and schedule
    Working on your own, not a ton of micro managing
    Nurses and Staff are helpful and friendly when you are lost
    Other co workers are helpful

    Cons

    Long 8 hour days, can be hard physically bending down a lot
    Rushing around all day, hard to take breaks
    Stressful timing when cleaning rooms
    Certain management can be hard to work with
    Not a lot of appreciation when working
    Not a lot of pay. Very low. Starts at 9.91 an hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about concerns of employees more
    Switch up jobs more. Don't make employees work in the same area day after day.
    Better pay. MUCH better pay. Like 6 bucks more. For ALL houskeepers. They work hard and deserve it.

    Pros

    My manager really cares about me. He told me that he wants what's best for me and my career development, regardless of whether that means I stay on his team or not.

    Cons

    It's a non-profit so while pay is competitive, you can definitely get more elsewhere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop dropping buzzwords like Big Data and Silo's and do something about it. Can the weak project management matrix and get some work done.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Enough good employees to achieve success in spite of neurotic executive team.

    Cons

    Nilly willy senior leadership who focus on making a name for themselves without respect to employees. Middle managers chosen more for ability to toe the party line than for being top-notch.
    Many recent corporate initiatives in revenue cycle, productivity improvement, and supply chain have been very poorly executed with bad results due to incompetent leadership mostly recruited from inside and staffed with insiders without specific experience. The organization could do much better that the VPs and AVPs attempting to lead these efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some personality disorders are uncurable. I don't think respect for employees will come about without a leadership change in Ogden. Get rid of widespread nepotism flowing down from the senior ranks.
