I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good place for developers because no stress at all. the IT top managers are medical staff and don't know how to operate a software unit.

Cons

I don't see any future for the software employee's here.

Advice to Management

Please change your Upper Management. Hire people with software experience in the upper management. Not nurses, RNA's and medical staff. IT Upper management should be replaced immediately to save the organization.

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Evidence-based practice, lots of continuing education

    Cons

    Micro-managed to the hilt! Clinical employees (aka ESSENTIAL employees) always get the shaft anytime they try to save money, but of course management never gets called-off or has to work short or take a pay cut.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut hours, staffing and pay to the essential employees (i.e. the clinical employees) and loyalty would increase.

    Pros

    Nice facilities and fair benefits.

    Cons

    The truth needs to be told far and wide about the dominant hospital corporation in Utah. It is obvious most people do not see beyond their propaganda. They love and fiercely defend their ‘not-for-profit’ status and don't pay any corporate taxes. They spend tons of money to promote an image of philanthropy and caring to overshadow and distract the public from their real agenda. As long as they spend all profits, there is no tax liability. Therfore, they have millions to spend on advertising, bonuses, expansion, lobbying and reinforcing their grip as the primary health organization. A significant portion of profits go to bonuses for employees, the lions share to upper management. Bonuses are closely tied to coming under department budget. To qualify for bonuses, managers are motivated to staff at minimal levels and curtail equipment upgrades and maintenance. Staff medical caregivers often find themselves in difficult, stressful and debilitating positions. Predominantly sacrificing their own well-being to preserve quality of patient care. However, no matter how dedicated they are to putting on the required show of 'caring' and 'making you feel safe', it is hard for them to completely hide the frustration. Nobody in administration really cares at all! Contrary to common belief, the institution’s business practices are every bit as ruthless as ‘for-profit’ health companies', if not more so. The enviroment of caring mantra is just a well orchestrated facade. Next time you are in one of their hospitals as a patient or a concerned visitor, closely observe the conditions staff members work under. Next time you meet a competing clinic or associated vendor, ask them how hard-nosed they are to do business with. The true priorities are basically in this order: Money, Image, Market Dominance, Patient Care, and Avoiding Liability. Employee security and well-being are at rock bottom! The truth is often an unwelcome visitor. There is a serious and desperate need for fair competition in the field of heath care in Utah.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. LIsten to reason. Provide proper resources to department and project success. Stop giving money and public image priority over employees and patients.
