    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and job security, opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Low pay; Company protects poor performers and unprofessional folks to the point where it's unfair to those who work hard and don't complain, which often leads to the most valued employees leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Great company that emphasizes the importance of extraordinary patient care. They go out of their way to make sure that all employees feel valued, which is mostly a good thing but it also creates an entitled attitude for those who are poor performers and would never be able to find a job anywhere else. In the department I worked in, it was nearly impossible to fire someone -- even if the person was unable to meet benchmarks or expressed extremely negative/hostile behaviors.

    Look to promote from within

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Most everyone there wants to do the best work they can for the patient. Strong brand and great to have it on your resume.

    Cons

    Internal politics. People worry a lot about their titles and their movement up the ladder. It's a hard place to move up and around.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to give opportunities to lower paid, front line staff to give opinions and ideas. You have great employees who are very committed and would love to contribute.

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

    Pros

    I really enjoy the people that work there and a lot of growth is happening in IT. The company is committed to their employees and striving to be a leading innovator in healthcare and technology.

    Cons

    Takes a long time for the 401k company match to kick in. The company has a start up type feel in IT, but doesn't have a lot of the perks of start up companies (no free meals, snacks, no casual dress code)

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Intermountain has the same problems as other big companies, namely it doesn't always know what is happening in another area. That said, it's a great corporation for employees. They really try hard to help their employees in all areas of life.

    Cons

    As above in the pro description.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

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

    Pros

    Great benefits (medical/dental/eye, they'll match 401K investment, fmla, etc.). Fast-paced. Networking within company and the involvement/implementation of health for the company such as their 5 commitments and workplaces get togethers.

    Cons

    Convinced something is going on with our boss and another tech. People seem to be clique-y and take long breaks/lunches. No professionalism/boundaries when joking around.

    Advice to Management

    Compliance/HR needs to be notified of lack of professionalism, misuse of resources, and etc. More team building activities. Train all techs to be on the same page (hardworkers, go-getters, tackle activities, increase productivity). Cross-training.

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    The company is very slow moving which means low stress and flexibility.

    Cons

    While the company is slow moving it is difficult to get excited about the work.

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Quality care and facilities! Had the opportunity to work with people who were truly exceptional and work on efforts that were way ahead of other healthcare organizations.

    Cons

    More recently, Intermountain became more like a for-profit healthcare organization than non-profit. Delivers great care, but some home office leadership are losing the connection that they are there to support patient care .

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for those leaders that are self-promoting and parrot the Values but don't really demonstrate those values.
