    I have been working at Feinstein Kean Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The clients
    The work
    The culture
    The career opportunities
    Enlightened HR folks who are unbelievably supportive of team members needs from hiring and benefits to staffing projects
    A creative and supportive finance group
    A CEO who is bright, engaged, caring and talented

    Cons

    It can be very busy and you need to be sure to reach out for help if you need it.
    Working with the corporate parent can be challenging and, although doesn't happen frequently, can present challenges in supporting client projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up what you are doing to support employees...

    Great place to start, but fewer opportunities as you rise in rank

    I worked at Feinstein Kean Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fascinating assignments: you'll work with innovators who spend their time tackling huge problems with world-changing implications (e.g., cancer, next gen sequencing, combating the obesity epidemic). Lots of camaraderie, particularly among the junior staff as you build your skills and face some turbulence (see Cons below). Multi-disciplinary workforce of veterans means there's always someone to learn from. Ogilvy cred means working here can be a great springboard.

    Cons

    It can be a very provincial organization: staff flourish under certain managers and flounder under others, and it's no great secret which is which. The culture from the top down can be overly corporate and stifling, particularly in the case of HR, which had a myopic focus on process. And because the firm is owned by a corporate parent, the usual growing pains crop up from time to time, especially salary freezes and "promotions" that come with greater responsibility, yet no change in pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, listen to junior staff more, and don't sacrifice talent for process.

    Keep up the good work and continue to communicate frequently.
    continue to train managers on how to manage their direct reports as well as their teams.

    I have been working at Feinstein Kean Healthcare as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fantastic co-workers and working environment. Everyone is very passionate about what they do and it provides for an exciting work day.

    Cons

    As the intern I often felt out of the loop in the Graphic Design department, but felt very included overall. In the end, it was a great place to springboard my career early on.

    Pros

    Strong commitment to health sciences, some smart people, impressive CEO

    Cons

    Shady employee practices, not colleagial, no celebration of team successes/new biz wins, decentralized teams

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take stock of your dedicated and loyal staff and keep an open dialogue with them, they really care and you should listen. Take a close look at your HR they don't service managers, and dont take staffing needs seriously.

    Not bad, but not good either

    I worked at Feinstein Kean Healthcare

    Pros

    Convenient office location for commuting
    Flexible work hours
    Training and growth opportunities
    Team building activities and company events
    Some middle-managers were competent

    Cons

    Long hours (being flexible about long hours is a joke)
    Office layout is horrible
    Low pay
    Very cliquey
    Misplaced accolades/blame
    Some middle-managers were incompetent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate conflicting work priorities.
    Understand that timely responses to problems mitigate the need for urgent actions.
    Promoting people who are good at what they do but are not so good at managing others will alienate future talent and result in high turnover.
