    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Fair amount of learning opportunities, personal manager was mostly professional

    Cons

    Okay-ish pay and benefits, HR is there to back up company policies and mediate instead of help employee, high turnover, expects more from employees all the time without adjusting workload accordingly (or even increasing workload despite), minimal incentive for staying the long-haul and becoming multi-certified, only offers $3000 tuition reimbursement per year if you are working full-time WHILE going to school whereas other places will pay off large amounts of student loans for simply committing to stay with them, employee burnout common and it shows

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    I love my workplace, patients, co-workers and management. Everyone works as a team and we've truly become a family. I've never felt this kind of camaraderie in any other workplace.

    Cons

    Scheduling is really tough. If I had this schedule at any other work place, I would have quit long ago. My patients and coworkers are what keep me at my job because I truly love working with them. Management has recently hired travel nurses, which has decreased our floating requirements, which makes the hard turn arounds less stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the travel nurses so that we don't have to float as much. Hire more experienced nurses so that as a senior nurse, I don't have to work as many nights if I don't want to. Try schedule blocks so that nurses have the option of working all nights some weeks and all nights some weeks to decrease the difficult turn-arounds in scheduling.

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

    Pros

    I love working for a non-profit organization. I have worked for other major hospitals that are not non-profit. Intermountain runs thing safely. Good patient/nurse ratio.

    Cons

    There is a lot of training and infrastructure which is annoying but is not exactly a con sometimes it is nice to have all these policies in place but the quarterly trainings get a bit redundant.
