    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.

    Fully support Dr. Harrison

    I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work in Information Systems, unless you are talented, experienced, and ambitious.

    Cons

    The title pretty much covers it. Deliver high quality work because your integrity demands it. But, don't kid yourself that your efforts will be rewarded. Someone from The Church will always pass you by. If there is no penalty for poor performance, then what is the incentive for superior performance?

    Advice to Management

    You'll never change a culture that started over one hundred years ago. But, it's good that you're trying.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefits and discounts in the community due to IHC being (technically) a non-profit. Very professional work environment, I really enjoyed working at LDS Hospital Psych unit. Great people and a good company to work for. It was a tough job to leave, only left for another opportunity.

    Cons

    From what I've read pay rates are a bit less than at the University of Utah Hospital. Some of the company wide meetings are pretty tedious and of questionable benefit but no big deal.

    Pros

    Good place to work flexible schedule and great people to work with. Steady and dependable work and with ability to innovate.

    Cons

    Poor pay, management can appear to abuse their work force at times. Don't really see value in their employees unless you are clinical.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people appropriately and give them true value based raises.

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stability, will have to work really hard to get fired. Basically you can just do bare minimum to keep your job. Just sit back and watch someone else do the work for you.

    Cons

    Compensations well below what you are worth. Everyone basically gets the same pay raise, even though you may not deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Get new managers, ones that will hold employees accountable.
