    I have been working at Provant Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Provant is booming with possibilities and major growth. Salaries are solid throughout company. With such growth there are growing pains--- but Provant will stand by their clients, participants and employees to get through it and ultimately get it right. All the employees have a great passion to change lives for the better, and you can see it the moment you walk in the building. The employees are knowledgeable and hard working, going above and beyond more times than not.

    Cons

    The promotions internally can be slow. They have recently hired some highly motivated and experienced individuals who will bring a depth of knowledge to the organization, however some of the internal people who have worked hard for years and know the Provant process and can be elevated to another level are being overlooked. PTO policy is lacking. Can be stressful with all the growth and the highly visible clients which Provant services. As mentioned there have been growing pains along the way but it is getting better with each passing day with internal process streamlining and the executive team growth. Provant should recognize the hard working employees who go above and beyond, working weekends, late hours, having large workloads etc. Employees can feel under-valued and not appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly implementing a PTO policy which will grow over time. Customarily employees are offered 2 weeks at Provant and that includes sick time. This is considerably under the norm in the job market today. If they could implement a policy which added a week on every couple years up to a certain point that would benefit employees and ultimately their families to ensure a good work/life balance. I would also say to take more time to recognize individuals hard work. My fear is people feel under-valued and not appreciated - with the day to day it can get lost. So having upper management recognize people more often would go a long way!

    Pros

    Young company without much bureaucracy. Your ideas will be heard and implemented if good.

    Cons

    A high level of Cronyism within the company. Friends and Family run almost every department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more broad in posting new job offerings. A qualified candidate doesn't have to have the exact experience for the job your trying to fill.

    I worked at Provant Health full-time

    Pros

    Previous years, better culture. Strong sense of family bonding and team-work. Ability to grow and network with some talented great minds.

    Cons

    CEO is awful. She has destroyed the atmosphere and culture but she is simply put by another former senior executive, psycho. Why? Once you disagree with her, she is done with you. She plants seeds down waiting for you to break, or make a mistake to warrant the termination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the CEO and get a new one.

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Great coworkers, Potential of being a good company is there. Training has improved, new building is adequate.

    Cons

    The CEO is one of the worst I've experienced. She is a wonderful presenter but presents lies that she actually believes.
    35% of staff travel in from over 1 hour away. When inclement weather strikes it is followed with - "We live in New England" In fact one colleague was hit driving into work because of the pressure to get in on time was more important than safety. She ended up not being able to work at all that fay and for a few others that followed. (Ended up backfiring now didn't it.)

    CEO doesn't have any kids so if you do - don't believe the hype about flexible scheduling.

    Agree but no one should risk personal safety or risk safety of others if working from home is a viable option. She only lives a few blocks away and has blinders on so that would explain as to why she is clueless.

    If you go to ask her a question, be prepared for her to look right through you and speak condescendingly.

    Also do not expect her to have an idea of operational workflows.

    The business development team, client management team, and operations teams have no open dialogue. Items get promised to clients and in return Provant breaks them every step of the way.

    The health and wellness of employees is not a priority and one would think that a "life.changing." company would start with the individuals who make things work on a daily basis be a higher priority. It's not. Employee turnover rate is very high - if you receive an offer - make sure you negotiate the terms of your employment. Oh and don't worry about the non-compete agreement they won't come after you. Most leave and go to work for sustainable competitors and there are never repercussions.

    Pros

    There are some great mid-level motivated people here - however many average or lazy ones as well.

    Cons

    They will ask you to lie to clients due to promises made during the sales process, that are not executed, or simply unattainable. They are a wellness company - however do not have a wellness plan for their employees.
