I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare part-time (More than 8 years)

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 Management

Pay your employees a wage commensurate with education and experience.

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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
