    Pros

    Some of the brightest and most collaborative people I've worked with. This truly is a teamwork oriented company - not competitive.

    Cons

    Most roles require Mon-Thurs travel each week, although the company is open to working with people to find alternate roles. Culture may vary by service line or group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jim Roth is a really exceptional leader and person. You can tell he really cares about employees.

    Pros

    Great place to start a career and learn the ins and outs of the healthcare market. Management gives Analyst and Associates ownership of key project areas.

    Cons

    Mid level positions below market pay and not as many strategic consulting roles or projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to adapt practice methodology to be at the forefront of the changes in healthcare

    Beware. If you are an experienced consultant this is not the firm to join.

    Pros

    The pay is competitive and the benefits good. You receive an additional $750 per quarter for spending 25 nights out of town.

    Cons

    The culture is incentous and everyone gossips like high school. They promote those who exhibit their standards of success which is your ability to follow a checklist for cookie cutter solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read in between the lines. Many people are unhappy and just waiting to receive their annual bonus come March before resigning.

    Pros

    Fun place, everyone is willing to help. Excellent training and personal development. If you get a good coach you can grow.

    Cons

    Not very transparent when it comes to calibration and employee advancement or bonus.
    You must know one of the big wigs to get somewhere. You must constantly prove yourself to everyone, opinions don't always count if you aren't well known or liked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try giving employees warnings if they aren't producing.

    Pros

    Great culture, feedback heavy, good strong leadership, growing market in healthcare with strong opportunity, great opportunity to travel

    Cons

    Time and grade matters to promotion, can get stuck in specific solution group (con only if you want to move around), travel be a burden

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on people and growing outside of the box
