    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    Triage has an amazing company culture: smart, young, motivated, interesting new hires get to learn and grow and eventually manage teams and squads. The organization provides a lot of opportunities to work with different types of people and team sizes and to interact with upper managements and with clients. Plus you get to fully manage projects quite early on. The promotion system works, you need experience in the firm to move up, and the evaluation process pushes everyone to seek to exceed expectations.

    Top Triage Pros:
    - Great company to work for out of college.
    - Mid-size company with an open-door policy that has a lot of sway in the world of healthcare.
    - Very smart workforce that's becoming increasingly diverse in terms of regions and schools represented
    - Opportunity to advance up and get to run teams and train younger Associates
    - Travel, team events, company events: you can't deny Triage has maintained it's strong culture focused on balance and fun and it makes it very hard to leave. A lot of people make some of their best lifelong friends at Triage.
    - Internal opportunities (squad leadership, trainings, recruiting involvement, rotations such as Legal and Clinical) allow those that want to take on additional leadership roles.

    Cons

    The works definitely gets monotonous, but, there is always a way to find someway to get into something new, whether it's aiming for a rotation or getting really involved in a squad. The repetition eventually weighs most people down, but, those that want to can make Triage their own.

    The travel opportunities are declining and the company hasn't changed enough of the "in town" perks to accommodate, even though profits are out the roof and only continue to grow.

    Main Triage cons:
    - While salaries have increased slightly, the company has room to re-examine the bonus structure, and should. As company profits continue to increase, the bonuses don't necessarily match and yet more and more Seniors and Associates are putting in extra hours and committing to additional work.
    - The company has a lot of amazing alumni that go off to great graduate schools and move into upper level positions after Triage, yet there isn't a culture of promoting alumni advancement outside the company (like supporting time off for graduate school applications) even though those alums are future connections, clients, partnerships, etc. that only make the Triage name stronger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being awesome.
    Keep the culture.
    Be open to change.
    Re-think the potential to hire some roles from the outside, the company can use some new perspectives.
    Don't give up on the importance of "career development."
    Give Associates more room to get creative.
    Re-think investing into your employees' long-term goals.

    Pros

    The company cares about its employees and treats them very well.
    The people are young, friendly, and supportive
    Management is accessible and supportive
    Great work/life balance
    Good hours, rarely out after 6:30, and flexible hours
    Living in San Francisco is amazing
    Good corporate values

    Cons

    Narrow industry. Triage deals almost exclusively with insurance and hospitals to recover lost revenue. Not much experience if one wants to pursue different type of consulting or make sustainable improvements to our healthcare system.

    Pros

    Triage is an awesome place to start working out of undergrad. Its culture, accelerated career path, location, travel opportunities, and volunteer opportunities, and make it fun and challenging during an exciting time to be in the healthcare industry. This is a great place to start for someone interested in hospital management.

    Cons

    Triage calls Associates consultants; however they are more like auditors with a few opportunities to consult (i.e. recommend solutions). Decreased travel opportunities allows less opportunity for client face time. Also business casual in the office is unnecessary, and they could really step up the food perks in the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add focus on industry education for employees. Consultants are experts at reimbursement issues, but are often lost when it comes to anything else Healthcare related.

    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The employees and career development opportunities are the best parts of Triage. There is constant training in the first 2 years with the training modules and by rotating projects every 4-6 months for exposure to different clients, hospitals, and business challenges. Triage is an open, knowledge-sharing company that encourages creative thinking and communication. If you work hard and like the work you will progress in your career. Squad opportunities also add value to each employee's development and experience. Lifelong friends are made here.

    Cons

    Working in teams presents challenges at times in Triage's team-oriented environment. The travel also wears on employees over time.

    Pros

    We have a hands-on approach to the way we conduct business which allows us to have a direct connection with our clients, co-workers and members of our community. Everyone who comes in our path tells us, time and time again, how much they are touched by us.

    Cons

    Because we must sift through and manipulate a great deal of data, part of the work can be repetitive, especially at the entry level.

    Great to enter with a class of smart, outgoing individuals with similar backgrounds. You learn skills very quickly and feel the sense of accomplishment

    Cons

    Whether this is a pro or con, I have yet to decide; You can't get away from the Triage environment. Working at Triage is not only a job, it's a lifestyle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
