Pros

Wonderful opportunities to learn and progress, including training and education. Health benefits and additional compensation packages are given.

Cons

Mid management issues, that you will find at other firms, tend to be more predominant at Intermountain Healthcare. Too much management, very little leadership.

    Pros

    The work / life balance at Intermountain Health Care is fiarly decent and representative of what they claim. This certainly will vary based on department, manager, and such. But as a whole, it's decent.

    Cons

    Don't go into working at Intermountain Health Care with high expecations of the respect, honesty, and trust that they outwardly promote. Many of upper-management just as dishonest and spiteful as the companies they claim to not be like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enough of the good ole boys clubs and promoting people because they have academic and professional credentials. There are far too many managers managing who are clearly not cut out to be managers.

    New project valued employee effort. Soon the outside Manager moved on and job environment returned to insider favoritism

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare

    Pros

    Intermountain Health Care is largest healthcare provider (monopoly) in several states so there are many choices of jobs, facilities and locations to choose from. Healthcare benefits are decent, opportunities to take a limited number of classes such as Excel, Microsoft Office, etc. are available. Hospital environments are very friendly and cafeteria food is good and discounted for employees. Primary Children's Hospital is a notably outstanding facility. Matching 401K funds available, many businesses offer IHC discounts for goods & services. Small bonus at year's end, small yearly raise. Most employees are dedicated to excellent patient care. This is a good company for a starter job, or employment while you're attending school, but would not recommend it for long-term professional development. IHC is very generous in paying for applicable college course work.

    Cons

    Overall management is 1950's style - totally paternalistic with little awareness of 21st century business protocols. There are no women, persons of color, or even facial hair among the upper echelons of tall, lean, clean-cut, white males. The blandness of corporate thinking is pervasive. Promotions appear to be settled before applications or interviews are accepted. If you are not sucking up or in the in-group, you will not get promoted. The corporation is devoted to outward appearance of a wholesome, above-reproach organization while totally avoiding a good hard look at the well-being of thousands of their $8 - $14 per hour employees. Employee feedback is not valued. Once a year a Gallup poll of employee attitudes is taken and assessed, but there is no follow-up when a supervisor/manager gets very bad responses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Capable, hot-shot managers appear to have their attention turned toward moving up the food chain and pleasing, at all costs, the next higher level of management. Managers should foster interaction with all levels of employees working for them. They should ask questions and listen to feedback from all their workers. They should have a good idea of the tasks and know the people who perform the tasks in the Manager's department. Management needs to respect all workers, not just those who can help with their promotions.
