    I have been working at Mountain States Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I felt like I was truly a part of a team. The benefits are great and the cost is reasonable. I love that there is room to grow and move up in this company. If you truly apply yourself and show some initiative, you can move up the ladder. I have heard people complain about no room for advancement, but it has been my experience that those are usually unmotivated people. There are also a lot of opportunities to make a different and volunteer to help others. MSHA is involved in many community events and really cares about the local area.

    Cons

    I don't have a college degree but have a lot of experience. There are some jobs that I would love to be able to apply for that I know I would excel at but am limited because of my education. I wish that in some of those positions they would consider experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to let your team members know when they do a good job and not just when they make mistakes. When people feel good about their work they excel and when they don't, they do the minimum required to keep their jobs. Be friendly to the little guys. It takes a whole team to make it work as a system.

    I worked at Mountain States Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They allowed me to work in a critical car/surgical area right out of school with no experience, that doesn't happen in other systems.

    Cons

    The corporate system has no incentive to improve working conditions as staff has to either deal with it or move out of the region.

    I worked at Mountain States Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    paid on time, free coffee, adequate education of general health care policies

    Cons

    low pay, emphasis on productivity with very little training and support, very high turnover rate, favoritism, uneven benefit structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value employees who do their jobs well, rather than promote ineffective employees due to favoritism; listen to people actually doing the job, not managers trying to save their positions

    Pros

    There are a lot of high quality people employed by MSHA and most in my department are very dedicated to their colleagues and organization.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are not competitive outside of clinical areas. Executive leadership fails to see the reality of the diminished morale in multiple departments. No real attempt is made to keep quality individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to take a long hard look at all the supporting departments to address gaps and team member dissatisfaction.

    Really great benefits, nice employee recognition at holidays, etc

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider that your employees are someone's mom or dad or that people do have emergencies and need to alter their schedules from time to time.

    Pros

    Great area. Mostly good people.

    Cons

    Flailing leadership. Over-dependence on Federal (unreliable) dollars leaves entire system vulnerable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dig more into your mid-level (CXO) folks. They are not leaders...they are bureaucrats doing all they can to hold onto their piece of the pie.
