    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).

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

    Pros

    I've loved my 21 plus years with Intermountain for many reasons. First, it is a not for profit company that gives back tremendously to the community. Next, they have a commitment to their mission to help people live the healthiest lives possible. Finally, they have assisted me through financial reimbursement, educational activities, and opportunities for Job growth and self development that have made my career as an RN and now Informatics nurse very rewarding.

    Cons

    Pay grade for Utah is less than most surrounding states.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to involve end users in the decision making process.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are good and also the work schedules available.

    Cons

    They keep as few employees as possible, making you work short for weeks and months on end until gradually it's the new norm. Their main goal is to make as much money as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself is it worth to have great yet unhappy employees who end up going elsewhere, just so you can be below budget on your wages paid?

    I worked at Intermountain Healthcare full-time

    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.

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

    Pros

    Super smart clinicians, good benefits flexible schedule if you are salaried collegial atmosphere. New CEO cleaning house I really liked working here but my manager was awful.

    Cons

    Top heavy patriarchal management heavy emphasis on bureaucracy. Little opportunity to ask why or what if? Lots of Chief XXX Officers. Authoritarian management style. HR not helpful, part of the problem. Hypocritical value system. Great marketing but lousy follow through. Non-profit status hides a lot of sins.

    Advice to Management

    Flatten org structure, complete the task of removing the old guard especially c-suite.
