    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job security - nobody ever gets fired for poor performance. Nice facilities. Intermountain has a monopoly in Utah so they are everywhere (short commute)

    Cons

    Culture that breeds mediocrity. Hard work and higher performance gets you nothing - can be a frustrating place to work if you hope to climb the ladder. Pay is bad as well.

    Advice to Management

    Dump the dead weight in the organization and promote those that perform high instead of those that are mediocre but tenured.

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a variety of work to do, great cafeteria, mostly great employees. Benefits are decent. Huge base to choose from.

    Cons

    Favoritism and exclusion, ostracism if you are not in the old boys club. Science is a continuing evolving field, there is no failure when training students. Watched students harassed and beaten down continually by working staff. Support those and nurture our future staff, they will be taking care of you someday. We walked in their shoes at one time!
    If you have forgotten how to care and have become callous then get out of your field and let someone take your place who does actually care about others. Remember, we are being paid to administer help and compassion. Patients don't need to feel they are an imposition, they didn't ask to be there for the care they are paying you for.

    Advice to Management

    Treat students and non management better. Management could be taken down a notch or two. We're all people and we all have lives, issues and inconsistencies, we are human. Show employees you care and step down into the trenches. We make things run and you have lost appreciation for all that we do.

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Great vision, focused patient centered care, great benefits, beauful facilities, excellent patient education programs.

    Cons

    High turnover rate including management. Need to get rid of Management that uses bullying and scare tactics to run clinics and create hostile work environments. Management should be held accountable for their actions and attitudes when lower level employees are held to these standards and employee acknowledges faults.

    Advice to Management

    If the turnover rate at a clinic you manage is extremely high there is a problem especially when you can't keep middle management staff because they can't stand working with you.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and pretty easy to get a raise of some kind.

    Cons

    co-workers were too competitive and overly reported fellow co-workers to get ahead. There were harassment and bullying problems that weren't addressed by higher management and Human Resources. I thought that I could at least trust Human Resources. Trained and newly hired employees seemed expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Manager, Supervisor and Human Resources don't listen to you and believe co-workers who have worked with IHC longer. Didn't address harassment and bullying problems.

    Hold employees and vendors accountable.

    Pros

    Patient care is first and foremost. Intermountain invests in innovate cutting edge technologies/methodologies to help patients during their most vulnerable times. The organization communicates to the media and employees on strategies and shares stores to connect employees back to the patient experience.

    Cons

    I work outside of the clinical environment, and it is difficult to connect your role back to patient care. This company does not honor its mission when it comes to the employee experience, because employees are overworked, underpaid and there is an overwhelming sense of feeling undervalued.

    Bureaucracy is in full form at Intermountain and NO ONE can make a decision because they are struck with decision paralysis, the directive is always given to employees "let’s have another meeting and get more people involved." This is frustrating and leads to non-progressive movement with projects or initiatives. I have worked with Intermountain for years, and know it is time to leave the organization because things will never change, and the mission and values are not honored when it comes to employees.

    Overall the culture is not one I want to be part of any longer because poor leadership, low pay (I must mention a 2-3% annual increases which is insulting), zero growth or development support from leadership. Along the lines of development...if you don't manage your own path to develop yourself, you will left behind in your career. No investment will be made on your behalf either because you will be told that no funds are available to help you with development; or your manager is plain and simple to busy (managers are caught in the same catastrophic lack of work life balance) - be ready pay for all of your continuing education and find your own opportunities to learn and grow.

    This organization is heavy on high level leaders, and don't provide support for the front life staff. Management is willing to sacrifice turnover, disengagement and unhappy employees at the cost of meeting their goals and getting a big bonus at the end of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring high level leaders, and focus on the needs of your people. Build relationships with your employees. Employees need to feel valued and supported. Learn what employees need from you to be successful. Trust needs reintroduced on teams, and is top priority to build a solid foundation for high performance. Leadership needs to set the example, so employees feel they are living the healthiest lives possible and can transfer that feeling to our customers.

    Pros

    Great benefits and work from home options`

    Cons

    Horrible management, low salaries, too many meetings that are unnecessary and extremely political.

    Advice to Management

    Probably should try and atleast fake empathy for others, quit gossiping about co-workers, the gallap is a joke! You basically force the employees to say the company and management is great or else.

    End of year bonus and free swag every year.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to other local hospital systems. For owning the insurance company the benefits are the worse they offer to other companies. Generally understaffed.

    Advice to Management
