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

    Pros

    You know what you are getting with IHC. They are stable (as of this moment). They have a great culture. Their pay is slightly lower than market value. Great benefits including a pension when you become vested after 5 years.

    Cons

    New leadership at the top appears to be shaking things up for the sake of shaking things up. Much of the talent is worried about outsourcing which is making the culture more volatile.

    Advice to Management

    Yearly bonus should be based on your employee evaluation, what is my motivation to continue working extremely hard to get "extraordinary contributor" on my evaluation only to have my coworker who gets "meets expectations" have the same yearly pay increase.
    Get rid of the rule not allowing transfers to new departments the chance for a pay increase when they are in the same pay-grade. An external employee can come in and negotiate their pay grade but an internal candidate doesn't get a choice?

    Pros

    Great immediate supervisor, great co-workers.

    Cons

    disconnect between the department and the rest of the hospital. Difficult to be able to move up in the company. Lots of chances for horizontal movement, but nothing really vertical, even with a bachelors degree.

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Good work environment, lots of down time but can pick up at any minute so you're always on your toes. Great benefits and salary for entry-level position.

    Cons

    Didn't have the resources we were supposed to have all the time. Vehicles we used to drive around the campus in were old and not in good shape.

    Advice to Management

    Make communication to everyone better and more timely. Being willing to help out when there is a gap so we know you are part of the team.

    Pros

    Fair salary. I am given a good amount of independence to practice speech therapy how I want to and to pursue interests.

    Cons

    Communication is lost in chain of middle managers. Changes are not made very vast in my department because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for communication to flow freely and promptly move employees on the front lines to managers who allocate resources.

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

    Pros

    Great, stable company to work for. Hard to get on with the company sometimes but once you do, they are great at promoting from within.

    Cons

    Unwilling to work with many jobs that could allow employees to remote from home, even once a week.
    I've had great managers and I've had crappy ones as well. HR is worthless when it comes to personnel matters, especially with the bad managers.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more opportunities to remote work for employees. You will continue to lose good employees if you don't become more flexible. Most people have both parents working and allowing them to work remotely sometimes allows them to be more involved with their families. Your slogan is helping people live the healthiest lives possible.. well that means allowing them to actually spend time with their families and still have a career (when the job allows it, obviously).

    Pros

    Great people, great insurance, Descent pay, Fun working there, good management

    Cons

    Some managers were bad according to the department but overall a great place to work. Not much room for growth. Some managers pick favorites and it is hard on the rest of the team.

    Advice to Management

    More one on ones needed to be done with middle management and employees. Stop favoritism it shows how bad a director you are.
