    Pros

    Great people and a lot of opportunities to move around. Tuition reimbursement, good benefits and lots of free training/classes.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than what you would expect, but it may be because it's based in Utah where pay is low across the board.

    Pros

    Strives for excellence, encourages teamwork, pushes for growth and improvement, rewards employees, and is not for profit

    Cons

    Doesn't pay the best, but they are competitive within the state of Utah. Utah as a whole does not pay RNs well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Innovation for evidence-based medicine, rethinking the healthcare landscape; nonprofit organization; truly does operate by its values

    Cons

    Way too much work for the staff at times in the central office/strategic teams, not enough people to do what needs to be done to accommodate change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, other than realize that sometimes in upper-middle management, relationships and progress seem to be more based on "who knows who" than on skills and ideas. This is endemic in corporate culture; wish Intermountain could escape this.

    Current Employee - Supply Chain  in  Salt Lake City, UT
    Current Employee - Supply Chain in Salt Lake City, UT

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

    Pros

    - Phenomenal culture
    - Outside the box thinking is encouraged
    - Transparent leadership with goals clearly outlined and achievable
    - Leadership that 'lives' their mission and vision
    - Company supported training and education allowing employees to improve competencies
    - Where else can you work knowing that you are part of making health care better at the local and national level?

    Cons

    - Positional bottlenecks can exist which limits advancement at times. When advancement requires a move to a position held by a long tenured employee, you can hit the flesh ceiling. Need non-linear progression paths in more roles
    - Pay is below national averages in non-clinical business related roles...although I list this as a con, I believe it is offset by working for such a great organization. When everyone wants to work at your organization, supply and demand forces weigh in and less pay can be the result. This in no way indicates that it is less fulfilling as a career however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Your employee base believes in you and I know that based on informational sessions your HR groups host, you believe in us as well and are frequently soliciting how we can help make it better.

    Pros

    Benefits are top notch!
    They are usually wiling to work around you (department dependant)
    They are always looking to improve

    Cons

    Not very competitive with their employee salaries and reward individuals for major achievements like a large cooperation instead of taking personal interest and invest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your IT departments to get caught up with the growing technologies for all areas of practice
