    Pros

    The research and collective health care expertise at the Advisory Board is top-notch and provides value to members. Many colleagues and clients are fantastic people to work with.

    Cons

    In the past, leadership has been very transparent and candid; it feels as though that is rapidly decreasing since Optum acquired us in November. Will have fewer PTO days, more expensive healthcare, and zero paid hours for community service moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    It's obvious when you beat around the bush when delivering bad news from the Optum acquisition. Be honest and candid.

    I have been working at Advisory Board full-time

    Pros

    For folks who are passionate about healthcare, strong communicators and work with others, confront career growth challenges, be recognized for hard work and intelligence and be trained to speak eloquently, present

    Cons

    Technical teams are not trained in the same way or held to the same standards as the delivery/consulting staff but delivery ends up dealing with the pitfalls and communicating with the client on this. Management seems to avoid this concern and just hopes it get better.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent and supportive of career growth, try to sustain the culture as we move into Optum.

    I worked at Advisory Board part-time

    Pros

    Flex work hours, very chill environment, white noise speakers, decent benefits

    Cons

    work stagnated, not dynamic or challenging enough, not creative enough for me.

    Advice to Management

    have interns work on more creative and fun projects and make them feel like their work is actually being appreciated and benefited from. It seemed like i was just hammering away at a project nobody cared about anyway...So i felt unneeded in the company.
