    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great professional peers and opportunity to develop myself.

    Cons

    Paid at RN wages when achieved APRN position with licensure and credentialing. Poorly managed self-administered Work Comp department doesn't recognize their own physician opinions. I learned after 22 years of employment. Don't assume you'll be treated with respect and fairness. This was my mistake!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management has lost focus on what used to make IHC a great company. More money spent on advertising than actually listening to employees to make the environment more positive for employees. If you have to tell everyone how great your company is, then there is something wrong.

    Pros

    Intermountain has a lot going for it. Excellent management, team spirit, a great sense of community, pushing employees for personal growth. Also it is pretty easy to get time off and they offer great benefits.

    Cons

    The pay could be higher. But they do offer raises pretty frequently for those that deserve it. They require a lot of training. Almost too much. And they often have unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wonderful job keeping the staff involved and connected.

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Focus is on IHC's mission, vision, and values. Staff are dedicated to provide the best care possible. In the ever-changing healthcare world, IHC has managed to stay a step ahead of the competition and thrive.

    Cons

    Turnover has increased, with the majority of those leaving due to mediocre salaries and non-existent raises. For a corporation that spends a fortune on beautiful hospitals and PR, it's surprising how salaries are not competitive, forcing highly-trained employees to look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees a wage commensurate with education and experience.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Good people to work with. A lot of opportunities for training and advancement.

    Cons

    Could probably get paid more working for another company in the area, especially since Intermountain is a "not for profit" company.

    Pros

    *Company has never laid off IT employees.
    *Plenty of diverse IT projects to work on to enhance your interests and skills.
    *Diverse IT workforce includes lots of local people, plenty of foreign workers, and young, old, male, female workers.
    *Pay and benefits are competitive, but since it is a non-profit you can probably get better pay and benefits elsewhere. However, the company does have a good 401K/Roth 401K plan and a pension which you get vested in after 6 years. Pensions are rare these days, so this is a huge plus.
    *Family friendly work environment for most projects, although some exceptions exist.
    *Encouragement of workers to move to different projects.
    *If you are looking for a good, stable job, and want to stay put for many years., this company is for you.

    Cons

    *Advancement opportunities are difficult to come by. This might be due to a low turnover rate, which is probably a plus since people stay put at an employer they are happy with.
    *A little too much process for some projects - the FDA regulates some healthcare software.
    *Internal processes and bureaucracy can bee too much sometimes.
    *Some non-IT management can negatively influence IT projects for the worse. For example, it has just been recently that jeans were allowed with a more relaxed dress code. Some projects still have a non-jeans dress code - this is dark ages stuff for modern-day IT.
    *Some projects have aging, legacy projects and technologies.
    *IHC is a healthcare organization, so although they value IT, technology is not their core product, so some projects/people are not too savvy and open to technology being an enabler of innovation and ideas, although this is decreasing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be even more competitive with the modern-day IT workforce. IHC is still behind the times with IT workplace culture, relaxed work environment, dress code, perks (such as free lunches), flexible schedules etc. Improvements have been made, but much more needs to be done to stay competitive with modern-day technology companies. Non-IT upper management needs to let IT workers be themselves and stay out of the way. Healthcare and IT are done in vastly different ways, and management needs to realize this. More trust with IT is still needed.

    Pros

    The benefits working for this company are great! The facilities are clean and well maintained and the physicians are very knowledgeable in their fields.

    Cons

    They pay is not as high as other areas in the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management sometimes put unrealistic expectations on employees, particularly when they are unwilling to understand what our jobs are and how the patients are the priority and not the bottom line on reports.

    Pros

    In the hospitals and clinic, patients are seen as the top priority. Great environment if you're in the right department. Could pay a bit more like other healthcare organizations.

    Cons

    Corporate is money hungry and they make it pretty obvious. Threaten not to give yearly bonuses, and poor yearly raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using threatening as a scare tactic. And listen to the little people or they wont listen to you.
