    Pros

    Large company, good benefits, great culture, honest, respectfull senior leadership

    Cons

    Low pay (it's a non-profit company), terrible middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully vet the interpersonal skills of your middle management. Many people have left the company because of the horrible managers.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Strong culture and mission focus. Good work-life balance. Leadership is concerned about doing the right thing. Has strong vision for the future and good business outlook. Good training opportunities, and a lot of change (can be good or bad). Good benefits. Larger organization in Utah (for better or worse, but I like it). For the most part they practice what they preach (i.e., large focus behind the scenes to promote what is best for the patient vs. making money, strong efforts to promote wellness).

    Cons

    Strong preference for tenure (it seems to be a status thing for people who have worked a long time here). Base pay is at market or below (since it is a not-for-profit organization, the mission and culture draws people to work here not the larger pay check...at least that is the idea). Benefits are great and pension is nice, so need to consider these when factoring total compensation, because base pay may seem low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow and develop your up and comers, and differentiate performers and non-performers. Continue to promote the strong culture (keep to the mission, vision, and values).

    Pros

    When you work here you are part of a family that is passionate for patient care. Great values, good people. They are innovative.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive. They say they believe in recruiting within but that's really not the case in many departments. If you're not in SLC you are a bit of a stepchild.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promote based simply on seniority.

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare part-time

    Pros

    The benefits are great and they take pride in their patients

    Cons

    Working in the nutritional department is awful. The managers and supervisors don't have any idea how to run their areas. You have two options 1. Suck up to them and get favorite treatment. 2. Stand up for what is right and get punished eternally. When you go on vacation, prepare to be punished by working overtime when you get back.

    Low pay but great benefits

    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.

    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.
