    I have been working at Kaufman Hall

    Pros

    Known as the leader in healthcare finance. Great pay and good leeway to do what you want to do

    Cons

    Vacation is discouraged. Trying to make a name in strategy, physician alignment but practical applications still lack

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't show favoritism to individuals...especially those that don't pull their weight. Listen to 360 degree reviews that have been put in place. If someone gets universally poor reviews from their co-workers, don't promote them...it hurts morale

    Just okay

    Pros

    No problems with taking vacation and actually a pretty generous policy. Vacation doesn't roll over at year end. Pretty good pay, but offset by a portion being restricted for a very long period. Generally very nice people.

    Cons

    Location and commute are tough if you live in the city. Nepotism at its finest. You are either in or you are out here. Have a no-jerk hiring policy which means you get a lot of nice people working here, but not necessarily the ones that will succeed in business. Unfortunately that means the good ones leave once they realize they are subsidizing the bad and the bad ones stay and somehow seem to get promoted. There are a few key people here, if they were ever to leave or retire, not sure how this place survives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring only nice people sounds great, but doesn't work well in reality.

    I worked at Kaufman Hall full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The business segment is growing and Kaufman Hall is skilled at securing incremental business from clients. Currently expanding product and service offering. Decent brand recognition and brand in healthcare consulting.

    Cons

    They really don't know how to develop their own employees and fail at basic level communication. Certain members of the leadership group have a smug & condescending attitude that does not sit well, nor does belittling or making fun of clients behind their back who are paying them premium dollars for their services. Way too much talking about people behind their backs. Very political environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check your attitude at the door. Be thankful for your clients. Focus on what you are good at. Stop the pettiness. Stop the politics and promote those who really deserve it.

    I have been working at Kaufman Hall as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Senior Associate in charge of program valued interns' contribution to the Financial Advisory team and presented many opportunities to expand our knowledge on subject matter and positive feedback and on progress each week and constructive criticism on how we could improve. Associates who looked over our work were very nice and helped out tremendously. Great company environment.

    Cons

    Work can get repetitive after awhile so it is very important that one is proactive and initiate in terms of getting to know higher level members in the company (most of whom are friendly and approachable) to create opportunities for yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The internship program was great but there is always room for more improvement. Getting feedback from the interns really helped to make the experience a better one.
