    I have been working at Altarum full-time

    Pros

    The work-life balance is a huge draw. Co-workers are from various backgrounds and are supportive and helpful. Direct managers make all the difference. Recently implemented initiatives have made job expectations more clear.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are fairly arbitrary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The direction of the company fluctuates constantly and not necessarily in response to market forces. Executive compensation is a much greater fraction of the pie than at many other companies.

    I have been working at Altarum full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most of the people you will encounter who work here are smart. Really smart. Some ability to flex and comp your time.

    Cons

    Management is not only out of touch with their staff, the executives of the company have not had an all staff meeting in around 2 years now, instead choosing to hid behind a blog that they rarely publish and rarely respond to comments on. Benefits used to be great but now the entire company is left with a high deductible insurance plan that will really only save them if they're in a life threatening situation. Management has made several bad decisions recently, from hires/terms to investments in other companies. This has left the company apparently strapped for cash as spending holds and layoffs seem to be commonplace now. The lack of communication from management has led to very low employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try leveling with your staff. Once upon a time there was management in the company that respected the employees enough to communicate to them face to face.
