Too much is expected and not enough thanks is given.
Support from management
Management is concerned about themselves and retaining their title at all costs. Most managers already know what’s best rather than listening to the caregivers’ ideas. Again most lack the education or proper training to be great “leaders” rather than “managers.”
Most team members are great to work with. I believe that has Moreno to do with the culture of Utah rather than the culture of the company.
Freedom to work independently
I feel like with all that is expected from us, we are continually having to look over our shoulders. It causes some anxiety to having the thought always on your mind that I better not mess up or else.
Scheduling is just one example. One week you will be scheduled and then without any notice you’re either off the schedule or scheduled a different time somewhere else.
Almost too much attention and favorability to women and that may be due to the recent pressure for equality and women’s rights. It’s almost unfair for some of the males here.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Some managers respond well and treat older colleagues well. But again, if they pose a threat with more experience or education, older colleagues have seen to be isolated or mistreated.
People are given opportunities without proper interviews or procedures. Again it is the “good ol’ boy” mentality.
Overall compensation for your work
I see money going to extravagant parties and fundraisers and openings for certain things that sometimes pushes the envelope again for “showing off.” Utah in general has poor compensation for employees which leads me to believe there is a balance correction needed with employees and management, especially when some of the management is not educated or have the proper training or skills.
Office / Work Environment
I have mixed feelings. IHC provides a beautiful building. Almost too beautiful, like they are showing off a little too much, but the culture/environment is stressful and causes anxiety with the continuous demands and high expectations. Then you add some of the managers’ poor mentalities in there and that’s what brings it down.
For the most part, coworkers are nice but again that may be a Utah culture thing. On the other hand, I have seen a lot of friendliness as a mask only to see backstabbing and gossip when that same person is not around.
I would give 5 stars but with a lack of appropriate employment to meet needs, we are continuously on call.
Again after the recent One Intermountain and recent layoffs, along with “money is the most important thing” while sugarcoating it with “patients are most important” either way the company’s values are not what they used to be and continue to decline.
With the recent layoffs of a lot of the senior administrators to save money, it makes me wonder.
Almost too challenging. Again, a lot is expected and it’s almost like they are asking or waiting for us to make a mistake.
Suggestions for improvement
- Intermountain does well financially and it shows. In my opinion, not in the areas that counts. Less money on extravagance and showing off, more money on employee contributions.
