Each day, you know you are helping improve the healthcare system

Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Avalere Health full-time for less than a year

ProsFellow staff – You get to work with the best of the best each and every day
Senior management – Senior staff comes from a greatly diverse set of backgrounds and really helps push discourse forward
Culture – Avalere just feels right, everyone is excited to work

Like most consulting organizations, work-life balance is what you make of it

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing

Fast-paced, marketing and sales oriented view of healthcare

Manager (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at Avalere Health full-time for less than a year

ProsOpportunity to work in numerous therapeutic areas and numerous clients. Numerous practice areas for collaboration

ConsNot a nurturing environment depending on immediate management, makes assumptions about prior experiences, expectations regarding time to reach a certain level of expertise with position are not made clear at the outset but changes are being made to help with on-boarding for new employees.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A sprint, not a marathon.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at Avalere Health

ProsVery vibrant culture, good launching pad to strong careers elsewhere. Decent benefits, pleasant coworkers. Great company parties and some fun perks, such as gift cards and tchotchkes occasionally.

ConsNo reasonable way to balance work life and home life. General expectation to work long hours, and then evenings and weekends from home. So many people do this that everyone has to do it to keep up. Fast burnout. Very uneven management.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake a sincere effort to insist that your employees have a life outside of the office and lead by example. Stop setting the standard of being on call 24 hours. Care more about keeping your good employees so that they stay, rather than pushing so hard to keep bringing in more and more new employees when the good ones leave. Solve the problem of the Avalere revolving door.

Going through growing pains

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at Avalere Health

ProsOpportunity to become an expert on a range of healthcare issues, senior leadership is approachable, organizational structure is relatively flat although becoming more hierarchical

ConsCriteria for promotions applied inconsistently, senior leaders historically are policy experts not business/management experts, benefits package not as generous as other similarly sized firms

Advice to Senior ManagementDemonstrate recognition of issues that employees raise and that you are taking action.
