    I have been working at Impact Advisors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Impact Advisors has a rigorous hiring process resulting in only the best of breed co-workers and leadership. The culture is the best I have seen in any company. Client assignments are always challenging in the best way and rewarding - you can actually see the change happening in these healthcare organizations.

    Cons

    As with any consulting firm, weekly travel is the only downside.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! The only recommendation I would suggest is looking into a comprehensive parental leave policy. This is definitely a new space that very few companies are implementing so we could be on the front lines of this change.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Impact Advisors (Naperville, IL) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the recruiter first, then I had a 'technical' interview with another senior advisor, my last interview was in person in Naperville at their office with a Vice President. I feel the whole process was very thorough and I wouldn't have expected less from such a great company.
