    Pros

    Benefits, family oriented, works with school schedules, 401 K, pention plans.

    Cons

    Pay is not so good, I am making 2-5 dollars an hour less than other MA's in the health care field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider adjusting pay, we all have to make a living.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Good people to work with. A lot of opportunities for training and advancement.

    Cons

    Could probably get paid more working for another company in the area, especially since Intermountain is a "not for profit" company.

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    *Company has never laid off IT employees.
    *Plenty of diverse IT projects to work on to enhance your interests and skills.
    *Diverse IT workforce includes lots of local people, plenty of foreign workers, and young, old, male, female workers.
    *Pay and benefits are competitive, but since it is a non-profit you can probably get better pay and benefits elsewhere. However, the company does have a good 401K/Roth 401K plan and a pension which you get vested in after 6 years. Pensions are rare these days, so this is a huge plus.
    *Family friendly work environment for most projects, although some exceptions exist.
    *Encouragement of workers to move to different projects.
    *If you are looking for a good, stable job, and want to stay put for many years., this company is for you.

    Cons

    *Advancement opportunities are difficult to come by. This might be due to a low turnover rate, which is probably a plus since people stay put at an employer they are happy with.
    *A little too much process for some projects - the FDA regulates some healthcare software.
    *Internal processes and bureaucracy can bee too much sometimes.
    *Some non-IT management can negatively influence IT projects for the worse. For example, it has just been recently that jeans were allowed with a more relaxed dress code. Some projects still have a non-jeans dress code - this is dark ages stuff for modern-day IT.
    *Some projects have aging, legacy projects and technologies.
    *IHC is a healthcare organization, so although they value IT, technology is not their core product, so some projects/people are not too savvy and open to technology being an enabler of innovation and ideas, although this is decreasing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be even more competitive with the modern-day IT workforce. IHC is still behind the times with IT workplace culture, relaxed work environment, dress code, perks (such as free lunches), flexible schedules etc. Improvements have been made, but much more needs to be done to stay competitive with modern-day technology companies. Non-IT upper management needs to let IT workers be themselves and stay out of the way. Healthcare and IT are done in vastly different ways, and management needs to realize this. More trust with IT is still needed.

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits working for this company are great! The facilities are clean and well maintained and the physicians are very knowledgeable in their fields.

    Cons

    They pay is not as high as other areas in the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management sometimes put unrealistic expectations on employees, particularly when they are unwilling to understand what our jobs are and how the patients are the priority and not the bottom line on reports.

    Pros

    I love the Benefits and the staff here at Intermountain. It is a positive environment and everyone is always willing to help and support everyone else!

    Cons

    We are Medical Assistants in charge of so many different responsibilities, we are the Physicians "right hand" but we are paid........lets just say I made more before going to school and as a teenager. But I love taking care of patients....what to do?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your Medical Assistant's what we are worth. Start charging for "No show's", even if its a $5.00 "No show fee" , this will be enough to give MA's a raise AND if not, it will teach our patients to show up to their appts thus still bringing in more money.....to give the MA's a raise :)
    -Always glad to help!

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

    Pros

    I like that everyone's opinion matters there. I've had the opportunity to job shadow in other departments as I've been attending college and am looking into future careers. I've also had the opportunity of being part of committees.

    Cons

    I feel like the quality of leadership is lower than it could be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on hiring better managers or people who are willing to work hard to be a good manager.

    Pros

    Great people and a lot of opportunities to move around. Tuition reimbursement, good benefits and lots of free training/classes.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than what you would expect, but it may be because it's based in Utah where pay is low across the board.

    Pros

    Strives for excellence, encourages teamwork, pushes for growth and improvement, rewards employees, and is not for profit

    Cons

    Doesn't pay the best, but they are competitive within the state of Utah. Utah as a whole does not pay RNs well.
