    I worked at Triage Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great training on Access/Excel.
    - Good hours and good pay for the amount you're working.
    - Great fit for the right personality with the possibility of finding the perfect social niche for your 20's.
    - Opportunities for upward mobility very quickly within the company.

    Cons

    - Jokingly referred to by employees as "College Part II" if your college experience was filled with frat parties, tailgates and living for your nights at the clubs/bars. The company culture is very tight and very specific.
    - In the end, being smart and hard working isn't the key to getting promoted (and like many consulting firms, it's a 'move up or move out' system. If you don't get promoted within a specific time frame, you will be asked to leave the company). Whether an Associate's superior likes them on social level tends to be the most significant contribution to their evaluations, despite their professional performance.
    - The Associate work is very boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Please get rid of the Triage GPA as an evaluation tool if it still exists.

    Pros

    I've enjoyed my brief stint at Triage greatly - the employee experience empathizes to recently graduated college students. It's a great first job out of college.

    Cons

    To prefac - the pros do outweigh the cons. One concern that some may have is the somewhat necessary engagement with events outside of work. While it does build camraderie among Triagers, it may also divide those without any interest to be around their co-workers all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is great. They should continue to aim upward and grow the company throughout the US.

    Pros

    Triage has excellent employees and a thriving culture - it is a great transition out of college and into the workplace. The company has built my professional skill set from business writing to formal presentation and beyond, and I'm quite confident that I could walk into any situation and handle any challenge effectively and professionally.

    Cons

    Triage only has one career path, so it's difficult to explore other career opportunities within the firm. That being said, it's not impossible - the company definitely gives you the opportunity to get involved with anything you like, but your position and career direction will always remain the same.

    Pros

    You join because the people and the culture, which are both extraordinarily awesome.

    Cons

    You leave when everyone that was there when you joined has left. And because the actual work is mind-numblingly repetitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Brian Neece is a glorified hall monitor, put in place by the owners to ensure that no one runs to fast or goes to far. Triage is both incapable of, and impervious to CHANGE. The firm's lost potential since it's inception is equivalent to the inevitable, massive exodus of talent that walks out it's doors each year.

    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you are interested in Healthcare, but want to work on the business realm, Triage is a great place. However, our clients are exclusively hospitals, so there isn't much exposure to other healthcare fields. As someone who is interested in the healthcare business, I feel that I am getting a great knowlege base of how hospitals operate and generate revenue, as we work to recover lost cash from insurance companies once accounts have been written off by hospitals as uncollectable. Triage has great work life balance (M-F 8-5:30/6), the people are great and you work in teams of anywhere from 2-8 members. It is a relatively young company which makes the work day more fun. Plus the office is in San Francisco which is a great place to be right out of college. If you are on a travel project, the travel benefits are great as well.

    Cons

    On a daily basis, tasks are relatively mundane(especially as an Associate): you are on the phone with insurance companies (often time talking with offshore representatives) and in front of the computer all day (not much client interaction). Triage is not really "consulting" per say - associates and senior associates are mostly auditing and sending out bills/appeals to insurance companies for additional reimbursement. It was not what I expected when I interviewed - I was prepared for much more "consulting" rather than auditing and billing. I think that the reason Triage's attrition rate is so high is because there is not much room for growth - associates and senior associates pretty much do the same work.

    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.

    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Rotation of projects every 3 to 4 months to keep things fresh and new
    - Lots of opportunity to receive feedback and see how your are growing professionally
    - Great place to gain technical knowledge and management skills
    - Young environment

    Cons

    - Lack of diversity, ethnicity and age wise (almost all white and in their 20s) . Also for most upper management workers , Triage has been the the first and only company they have ever worked at. There is a lack of diversity in knowledge due to that. There is VERY little outside knowledge coming into the company.
    - Really fraternity/sorority-like. If you weren't apart of a frat or sorority- be ready to feel left out often.
    - If you don't become a Triage cheerleader and drink the Kool-Aid you are looked down upon.
    - Compensation doesn't fit the cost of living in SF, unless you live with your parents or you have zero student loans, you can't survive on the salary in SF. When the avg rent in SF is more than half your monthly income, that's an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recruit outside of frats and sororities, acknowledge people who are intelligent and have the skill set needed to become management rather than doing it by popularity and tenure.
