    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare

    Pros

    My family has worked with this company for as long as I've been alive. It is a great place to work! They really focus on taking care of the patient as a person and are consistently improving their care. Benefits are phenomenal! I have never seen coverage like it. From incentive programs(where they pay to be healthy and manage stress) to healthcare coverage there is always someone you talk to about you and your family. I highly recommend it to anyone.

    Cons

    It can be very hard to get in. Once you are in though, you're there. Due to high application income the screening can be brutally. If you answer one question wrong, your application doesn't ever make it to a person to look at. Make sure all your certifications (BLS, CPR, ect) are update before you apply

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was able to get internships and am also looking to advance my career here once i finish my degree. They value employees and want them to stay.

    Cons

    Living in Utah brings on a lot of challenges. There are so many people with degrees that getting the jobs you want can really be difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They do a great job with reaching out and giving advice to those looking to change thier paths. I would only say that it would be better if they actually had more mobility going around to allow different players to come into the company, or for others to move up.

    Pros

    Values, people, culture, work-life balance and health/retirement benefits.

    Cons

    At market or lag market base pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the pension and put it toward base pay (comp structure is geared toward long tenured staff, who are not going to leave anyway)

    Pros

    The hours are extremely manageable while going to school. Work with great people and low turn over.

    Cons

    There are so many modules of education that are required quarterly, most of which seem pointless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance goes up and down during the year. End of the year is crazy. Put pressure on insurance companies to change system.

    Pros

    Stable, Good Benefits, and great People

    They will push and push to grow or decrease inefficiencies but rarely give more resources.

    Pros

    Everyone has a voice, leadership is well aligned on delivering on their commitments, transparency in interactions

    Cons

    Many decisions take potentially longer than they should. There is often a cross functional team approach to problems which can make a week long decision into a year long decision...however, this can also be a bit of a "pro" when multiple viewpoints are considered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to do what you do, stay the course on your commitments. While we all realize that innovation and being a world class organization requires change, the speed of change is sometimes blowing people up...it has been a lot in the last two years...let's take some time to stabilize the changes already executed.

    People complain about the pay, but the benefits and culture offset that in my mind...I'd rather work for a little less for a company I believe in than making more working for a company I didn't align culturally with. Best organization I have ever worked for, and it's not close.

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare

    Pros

    It is a very stable company and is expanding every year. (It is almost a monopoly for the healthcare industry in Utah.)

    Cons

    Upper management is clearly focused on cost savings and maximizes any savings it can . . . often to the detriment of its employees. This is especially evident in the service departments; employee rosters have been greatly reduced (some departments have been cut almost in half). They are exploiting employees positions and overloading them to save a buck. This is leading to declining quality in patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is the PEOPLE who make the company successful . . . not the cost savings and newest and fanciest facilities!
