    Pros

    You get significant PTO (4 wks for associates) and are encouraged to take it. The average age at Triage is 23, your colleagues will be young and attractive but immature and fratty. At the associate/sr associate level the pay is very transparent and flat. Everyone at the same level makes the same--this decreases competition and increases camaraderie. Promotions are fixed and internal, if you stay around to make it to senior associate (21 mnths), you can get project management autonomy that is unlikely to be offered anywhere else. The downside to this is that you often have very young senior associates that are not ready to lead, evaluate based on personal friendships instead of actual skill and ineffective trainers. Mentor-mentee system is helpful in helping new associates navigate the company and ask non-p.c. questions. If you are genuinely interested in healthcare reimbursement, you will learn a lot.

    Cons

    Calling Triage consulting is a stretch as you are certainly not paid like it. "Recovering underpayments" = you are a medical claim auditor. Insurance companies pay hospital claims, you vet these claims to make sure they're paid correct and pursue if they're not. This usually involves hours on the phone with outsourced call center reps. The only consulting piece is a status meeting which occurs about once a year and won't involve associates. The travel is nice but it's basically forced facetime with apathetic clients. You won't meet any c-level execs and will likely only interact with your coworkers, just in a different city. The work is repetitive and dry, hence the high annual turnover rate. There is an unspoken pressure to spend time with your team and attend company events (happy hours, trips etc..), especially during travel. This is great if you just left a frat/sorority where you don't mind spending every minute with the same people and have all events planned for you. If you prefer to separate life from work, are not single, cannot stand upper-middle-class private school culture, this is not the place for you. Even though events are 'optional', repeat absences will find themselves onto your evaluations. 98% of your work is done in a proprietary access database, meaning your skills are non-transferable and pretty much irrelevant at other companies. Evaluations are frequent and highly subjective, making it difficult to resolve conflict. Unless you display undying loyalty to Triage and unwavering peppiness, you won't make it far here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop recruiting under the consulting umbrella unless the day-to-day work changes. Promote based on merit rather then tenure, the ratio of capable senior associates to inept ones is laughable. Increase the pay if your want to retain top talent.

    Pros

    Great first job out of college - culture is great, lots of fun team bonding activities, most employees are between the age of 21-27.

    Cons

    This is auditing, not consulting. Anticipate to spend most of your day reviewing hospital claims and searching for underpayments. Attrition rate is extremely high.
