    Low pay but great benefits

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare

    Pros

    The benefits here are probably unbeatable. They really are amazing. Otherwise, they give you approx. 10% night differential and 5% weekend differential. You also get a very small "evening" differential which is fine.

    Cons

    Very low pay for nurses.

    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 full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They take care of their employees.
    Benefits.
    Paid Vacation.
    Competitive pay.
    Job security.(They do everything they can not to let people go unless they deserve it.)

    Cons

    Their are politics to every job and every group dynamic. You have to learn to play the game but I have had a lot of jobs, and this is the best company I've worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really appreciate this company and what it provides for me and my family. Communication could always be better, but I have no real complaints.

    Pros

    They NEVER fire anyone, they just move them to a different dept/facility

    Cons

    Get low censused (forced to go home early) often. Experience and productivity is not rewarded(they actually make you work harder and more than the new staff). Once you fall to part time, it is next to impossible to regain full time status.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward experience and productivity instead of treating us worse. Care more about the patients, and less about the money.

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is job security because even if you're terrible at your job, there is so much red tape, it's near impossible to fire someone. I'm just trying to find a silver lining. The business side of things are good and there's not any formidable competitors in Utah so Intermountain should continue to prosper.The best part of working there is knowing that you're working for a company that does a lot of good in the community due to their low costs for treatment.

    Cons

    The downside to their low costs is that they have to take it from somewhere and it seems to be the incredibly low pay. They've made it known on several occasions that if you have a problem with your pay or work conditions, you're welcome to leave because there are plenty of other people looking for work. They see no unique value to people other than their degrees or certifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's honestly not a lot management can do to change this as they are just one level of many. A great idea can go miles up the chain and then get shot down because one person that has no interaction in a clinical setting didn't like it at first sight. I feel bad for management because they'll very likely never get to a position where they can effect real change if they spend the duration of their career with Intermountain.
