    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company values. Yes, there are some exceptions with certain people, but I believe as a whole, the company is truly trying to do the right thing for healthcare and is doing a good job of it. It promotes a culture of honesty, integrity, and doing the right thing. I really do like working for this company. They have good time-off policies (you can accrue "PTO" up to 480 hours I think and yes, it rolls over from year to year). Good work/life balance. I worked for another healthcare company in Utah before as a wound/ostomy nurse, and I must say that the culture of Intermountain is much better.

    Cons

    The compensation just isn't what the market says it should be. Looking around at similar jobs at say, the U of U where the salaries are public, or other sources, the pay just isn't great. When a class-mate in grad school (employed by the U hospital) saw the posting for one of the jobs I was considering, her reaction was "The job sounds interesting, but did you see that salary? That's ridiculous!" But I applied anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is doing good. I'd love to say I'm planning on staying forever, because I like the place, but unfortunately, the very real possibility of another $20-30K/year elsewhere (or another $50K across the country) is very enticing, so I'll keep my eyes open.

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Intermountain is a well run non-profit healthcare system. The benefits and job security are great. The pay is competitive in some areas. Healthcare is booming right now, and Intermountain is always hiring.

    Cons

    Doctors are gods. Don't argue with them, don't talk about them, whatever they say goes. They only get in trouble if they commit a felony. If you are not a doctor, you are insignificant in many ways. Some people have a heavier workload, and more responsibility than the doctors.
    Furthermore, 5% of the employees are bitter, entitled, and vindictive.
    The pay is not competitive in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower level employees have a lot of requirements, and a lot of support, but not much respect.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Nice people. good befits including 401K, tuition reimbursement, pension, etc.

    Cons

    Pay can be more competitive with the market.
    Values became more money driven over the years (from 2007 to 2015)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company changed a lot from 2007 to 2015. It seem to be more money driven than from when I started.

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive preceptors, engaging management, high-level projects, growing opportunities in continuous improvement and HIT. Highly recommend this integrated health system as a internship site for graduate students.

    Cons

    Utah is somewhat of an unique place with a culture that may take some time to get used to. Intermountain is also a large organization where things can be hard to coordinate over large geographic areas and different departments across various regions.

    Large company, good benefits, great culture, honest, respectfull senior leadership

    Cons

    Low pay (it's a non-profit company), terrible middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully vet the interpersonal skills of your middle management. Many people have left the company because of the horrible managers.

    Pros

    When you work here you are part of a family that is passionate for patient care. Great values, good people. They are innovative.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive. They say they believe in recruiting within but that's really not the case in many departments. If you're not in SLC you are a bit of a stepchild.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promote based simply on seniority.
