    A good place to work out of college for 2-4 years, but not where you want to spend your career.

    Pros

    Triage holds your hand out of college and introduces you to the world of business through basic training programs, on-the-job training, and endless happy hours.

    Cons

    The work is 10% Consulting and 90% arguing with insurance companies about collections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent in what job you are offering to potential employees. Many students feel that when they are leaving to work at a "Consulting" company, they will spend the majority of their time working on consulting projects. In reality, associates and seniors spend the vast majority of their time arguing with outsourced insurance company representatives with little understanding of correct payment practice.

    Pros

    - Good promotion schedule
    - Opportunity for client facing experience
    - Great travel perks
    - People are fun and smart

    Cons

    - No opportunity to accelerate promotion or gain more responsibility with better performance

    - Not much innovation as a company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know you have attempted a performance-based compensation system in the past, but I think it's worth another shot. You will do a much better job retaining great employees.

    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    I've enjoyed my brief stint at Triage greatly - the employee experience empathizes to recently graduated college students. It's a great first job out of college.

    Cons

    To prefac - the pros do outweigh the cons. One concern that some may have is the somewhat necessary engagement with events outside of work. While it does build camraderie among Triagers, it may also divide those without any interest to be around their co-workers all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is great. They should continue to aim upward and grow the company throughout the US.

    Pros

    Triage has excellent employees and a thriving culture - it is a great transition out of college and into the workplace. The company has built my professional skill set from business writing to formal presentation and beyond, and I'm quite confident that I could walk into any situation and handle any challenge effectively and professionally.

    Cons

    Triage only has one career path, so it's difficult to explore other career opportunities within the firm. That being said, it's not impossible - the company definitely gives you the opportunity to get involved with anything you like, but your position and career direction will always remain the same.
