    I have been working at Arcadia.io full-time

    Pros

    Play with data - lots of it, and have a positive effect on the healthcare industry. Supportive, but demanding culture. Friendly environment inside and outside of work. Smart enthusiastic colleagues.

    Cons

    Not always a clear career path. Might be good for some, bad for others.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, continue to foster an environment that allows people to work on challenges not always related to the day-to-day.

    I worked at Arcadia.io

    Pros

    People with no prior healthcare or technical background can start working as consultants and learn valuable skills such as working with EMRs, SQL, databases that are easily transferable to many different roles and projects. Healthcare is one of the fastest growing industries and there is plenty of opportunity. Coworkers are smart and come from top schools. Most are nice and friendly and spend time together... outside of work. Schedule is flexible. As long as you get your work done, you can have a more flexible hours.

    Cons

    Career paths are almost nonexistent. Management has been trying to hard to create more structure but it has been difficult because selling and staffing strategies can be often random. Some people spent years on the same project while others get more lucky and have exposure to more things. Quick advancement is possible but it is usually dependent on playing politics rather than merit. There always seem to be a... struggle at the top and the company keeps changing its management structure to accommodate different interests.

    I have been working at Arcadia.io

    Pros

    Working at Arcadia provides a great deal of opportunity. Entry level consultants come from great schools and backgrounds, and much of the leadership team has been with the company since it's inception. There are very few deterrents to career growth, and aggressive new hires can find themselves with a great deal of responsibility quickly if they choose to take it on. The culture is young and open, and many of the... consultants are friends outside of work.

    Cons

    Like many consulting firms, the side of Arcadia seen can vary from project to project. Depending on who your client partner or project manager is, you could have a even work life balance, or none at all. The openness of the culture permits much visibility into the executive level and affects the moral of the entire firm. When leadership is uncertain, the feeling pervades the entire company, as everyone quickly... becomes aware of their uncertainty, from entry level on up. Finally, Arcadia is loosely structured; career paths are fairly non-existent. If you know where you want to go with your career, you may be able to get there, but those without a clear career path in mind won't advance.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good at realizing their mistakes and taking steps to correct them. There was a period when political struggles were apparent and caused a great deal of lost focus, but that appears to be past. Company Leadership should take steps to normalize culture and expectations across all project teams.

    I have been working at Arcadia.io

    Pros

    Bright, open atmosphere with access to top management and a community of supportive consultants. Great place to work!

    Cons

    Small company means creating your own career path. If you like that, its a plus, but for many young people its a minus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
