    Good, honest, ethical company that doesn't pay too well.

    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.

    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

    Leadership at the very top are driven to make this an ideal place to work. They are willing to sacrifice financial gains to do what is ethically right. They are very concerned with improving employee engagement and employee physical, spiritual, and emotional health. Working here has made me a better person, father, and husband.

    Cons

    Big company with limited/slow upward movement that is based on time and degrees rather than actual work success and ability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget the red tape of HR qualifications, interview more, and hire the best people.

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

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

    Pros

    Up-to-date protocols, good employee training, simulation.

    Cons

    No competitive pay, poor nurse:patient ratios,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee retainment should be a priority. Walk a day in the shoes of a floor nurse within the patient tower.

    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.
