    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare

    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.

    Pros

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

    Pay can be more competitive with the market.
    Values became more money driven over the years (from 2007 to 2015)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    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.

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

    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 have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Easy access by train. Low key work environment. Employee discounts to a lot of local establishments. Feel like you're helping people.

    Cons

    Was offered a job at another department with a promotion. My supervisor and his boss thwarted it from happening by forcing hr to drop the level of the position and low-ball the salary. They care less about their employees and more about their bottom line (if the CEO of a non-profit makes more than 1 million it makes you question why we have non-profits?)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting people based on how long they've been there and start promoting the quality of work. You're encouraging loafers to stay and talent to leave.

    Also, stop encouraging a fear-based organization. We need to stop doing things that are against industry best practice because so and so on the 24th floor wants it done that way. Grow a spine and do things the right way.

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare

    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

    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.
