    I have been working at Health Advances full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are the best asset: very smart with a good balance of perspectives (science and medical vs. business). Firm fosters a good culture in which its easy to thrive if you apply yourself. Travel is not a killer like at other consulting firms. Hours are reasonably flexible, allowing time to get personal things done.

    Cons

    Consistent with many consulting firms hours can be long - nothing unusual in this regard, but be prepared for a long night here and there if you've never done consulting before. Management is cautious, so decisions can take too long and sometimes decisions aren't always transparent. This is sometimes perceived as patronizing "we [management] know best". Pay is not as competitive as elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace innovative ideas from your employees more readily. Take more risks on your employees' enthusiasm by offering more training and externship opportunities.

    I worked at Health Advances full-time

    Pros

    Constant work - will not have downtime wondering when the next project will come in

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive for hours expected, unclear training and integration plan for higher level positions, high turnover, people and projects treated as cookie-cutter

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to customize with real value-added insight beyond the standard deliverable

    Pros

    Nice people, generous pay, interesting work. The firm is a good place to get your feet wet in consulting or consider paths into MBA, med school, or industry work.

    Cons

    Puts too much menial work on entry-level hires and promotes them based on success there, rather than ability to handle more complex and project-essential tasks.
