    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Young people, fun atmosphere and continual training. This job gives you plenty of opportunities to learn about the corporate world of healthcare consulting while allowing you to develop socially as a professional.

    Cons

    No bonus program to entice better performance. A person who busts their back to get ahead will be compensated equally to an employee who squeaks by. Company can seem a little too fraternity/sorority oriented after a while.

    Advice to Management

    Look into creating a more competitive environment, that includes a bonus system based on performance.

    Great opportunity: responsibility early, multi-functional opportunities, great work-life balance/people/culture

    Pros

    Large Responsibility Early: Dependent upon your performance, within 21 months you could be leading a project with multiple direct reports. You will learn to manage employees and connect long-term goals co-created with senior management to short-term workflows of your project. Multi-functional opportunities: Very easy for person to become involved in areas outside of day-to-day consulting work. I was lead of recruiting at my undergrad and a liaison to one of the company's non-profit partners. This was in addition to the day-to-day work I did for my client. Other opportunities also include: Green Squad (leading in-office sustainability), internal consulting (growing knowledge base and improving software/processes), training (lead internal training for newer associates), etc. (check website for more) Work-life balance/people/culture: Probably the most distinguishing factor. All of these are perfect for where I was coming out of college. Only 45 hours/week in office, the people that work here are all fun and often go out together outside of work, and the culture is one of creating a one-stop shop of professional development coupled with a social employee-base that could replace your current friends (if you want it to). All of the above means that there are many opportunities to either stay or move onto a new endeavor in a variety of industries/functions, and you will enjoy your time while you are here.

    Cons

    *Sometimes work can become repetitive and mundane (especially some of the stuff you will be doing early on in your career). *Specialized in one area of healthcare. Stay too long you could think that you're pigeon-holed into hospital administration. *Compensation is same for all employees. While attempts have been made to recognize great work from select individuals, sometimes it just feels like management is checking the box on "recognizing their employee[s]".

    Advice to Management

    Try to continue becoming more transparent with success of company and sharing in spoils. While it'll never get to disclosing liabilities of company, the revenue targets seem to come out of nowhere. When left to my own devices, the annual revenues for a 400-person company seems like a pretty sizeable delta between revenue per employee and compensation for those grinding on the revenue-generating work.

    Pros

    Triage really values work/life balance which is readily apparent through their vacation and travel policies.

    Cons

    The work can be a little mundane but that is the nature of the job and the type of services they offer to their clients.

    Pros

    Really fun work environment. Young coworkers, good work life balance. Very good trainings and exposure to team-oriented working processes. Transparent promotion track.

    Cons

    Not diverse. Especially for San Francisco, supposedly the epicenter of diversity in the bay area. Very monogamous frat-like culture and people. Not much incentive to perform exceedingly well since promotion track is set and based on tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more diverse employees to stay innovative and competitive. Give incentives for employees to go the extra mile on projects (recognition, bonuses, etc).

    Spice up the work a little!

    Pros

    Everyone will say the people, and it's true. You get to work with people your age (recent college graduates) and you make a lot of friends in the process. Compared to other friends I have a great work/life balance (for the most part just working 9 hour days). We also have a great vacation policy, can't beat starting with 4 weeks/year. It appears to be a great first job out of college, you will get a ton of professional experience. Most of the people leaving the company seem to have good career/graduate school options following.

    Cons

    The salary could be higher, it is not very competitive. Most of my peers started out making around $70K, Triage starts you out around $60K now (with bay area rent you definitely feel the pressure at times, forget about saving money!!). You also are not compensated for travel time which is very frustrating. The work itself is pretty mundane and repetitive (it's pretty unavoidable), but the people you work with make up for it. There is also a huge amount of focus on hours worked, despite being paid salary, it can seem a little rigid.

    Advice to Management

    Bump up the salary to compete with other bay area employers in addition to salaries earned by similar graduates of top universities. Pay employees for travel time.

    Pros

    People are very friendly, supportive, and fun. Lot of extroverts and people who can make a good time out of a crappy one (read: Cons). Great leadership, values, and training.

    Cons

    The work itself can be tedious, monotonous, and sometimes, frustrating. You will find yourself thinking "I went to a [probably highly regarded] 4-year university for this?". Some people handle it better than others. Being a good fit in terms of attitude/background is important. Outgoing/highly social individuals will thrive; introverts may benefit less from this environment, though may find it fun nonetheless.

    Pros

    Triage has young, ambitious colleagues and a tremendous culture. The work-life balance is phenomenal for consulting and the company really cares about the well-being of its people.

    Cons

    The work is extremely narrow and can be boring. The pay is only adequate and it's not a true consulting firm - more of an audit/staff-augmentation company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and try to reward your superstars.
