    I worked at Beacon Partners (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A great group of consulting professionals who were widely respected by the client base.

    Cons

    Sometimes thoughts were corporate headquarters oriented, as if they had forgotten that most of the revenue generation for the firm came from outside of HQ

    Advice to Management

    None really. It's hard to argue with success.

    Pros

    There simply are no pros.

    Cons

    This company has more respect for toilet paper than they do do for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Sell

    Pros

    Great team of sales and consulting professionals

    Conservative family owned business that treated sales team like used Kleenex.

    Sell. Oh, wait...

    Pros

    "Do not trust what Sr. Management says".

    Cons

    Senior Management can "demand" termination of any employee for no reason. They use the term "At Will Employment" frequently to remove good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Sr. PS - makes "rash and poor decisions" . Frequently loses temper and speaks negatively about co-workers. Their process and ability to terminate great employees should be re evaluated.

    Pros

    Great place to work in that you are surrounded by intelligent individuals.

    Cons

    Their lack of flexibility and adjust-ability has them in a difficult position. New programs and goals aren't given enough time to come to fruition.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate what you have, find ways to get the most out of it.

    I worked at Beacon Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, the whole package of medical, dental, vision, 401K, PTO. The most fond memories I have is working and collaborating (lots of fun!) with fellow co-workers, great human beings and amazing professionals! As a remote employee I was always grateful for the corporate team and how hard they worked to support those of us out in the field.

    Cons

    Leadership not recognizing the amazing talent and value that all front-line employees and contractors, whether remote or corporate, had and have to offer to make Beacon the "go to" company for the healthcare consulting industry. Not open to synergistic, collaborative masterminding to change things and to transform and grow the quality of the company offerings and to transform the corporate culture throughout, just interested in short-term gain.

    Leadership and management not open to tap/cultivate, to listen, to consider great ideas - the golden nuggets found within the diverse set of individuals that made up this group (corporate, employees, and contractors). Beacon's message to all was, "we are billing you, make money, if you have issues, figure it out," "oh, and by the way, we billed you as highly experienced senior consultants," when the case was not true more often than not...no support from direct managers and higher ups. Keep in mind that Beacon had just been on a big hiring wave of recent college grads and business professionals with no vendor-specific experience. Training was sporadic and fragmented. Regional sales managers (who work to secure projects for the company) positions are a revolving door. Practice managers (Epic, Meditech, etc.) also another revolving door. Hmmm...actions speak louder than words...

    Advice to Management

    A business, a company is a reflection of the leadership - owner, leader, if you don't like what you see in your company it is a reflection of you. If you have no idea of what's going on with your company/business, stop, sit, ask and listen to your teams, you just might learn something...

    I worked at Beacon Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training was avaliable. CSMs are friendly and very approachable.

    Cons

    Expense reimbursement a pain. Also, at least when I was there, there was no corporate card.

    Advice to Management

    You advertise that your consultants have at least 8 years experience. The idea of hiring consultants with little healthcare experience or straight out of college is something I do not agree with since getting seasoned experience from a medical center or health care vendor is critical BEFORE you start a consulting career. Just my opinion though.

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers. There are some of the best people in the field you could wish to work with. Beacon offers good training opportunities. There is good travel compensation.

    Cons

    There is very poor top-down communication from executive management to mid-level and then from mid-level to consultants in the field. There are also unexpected layoffs when Beacon proudly preaches they take care of their people who are on the bench. There are also poor merit increases and bonus structure. A week or two on the bench can wipe out your bonus. There is a trend of favoritism over ability for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication and "practice what you preach."

    Pros

    Service Offering is a much needed service in the market place - Talented Colleagues in the consulting area with a great work ethic.

    Cons

    So called executive Management team is like a click - no outsiders allowed. The CEO does not appreciate his employees and the value each and every person brings to the table. The turnover since the start of the company is higher than any other company in the same industry . Very sad that the CEO doesnt value the people who work the hardest for him he has a select few "Favorites" and those are the people he is somewhat decent toward. Other than that he could care less about people. Because of the attitudes of Manangement people are always stressed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites, appreciate the people who are willing to work hard for you - recognize the talent of the folks YOU hired and treat all of your employees with respect and common courtesy. Think outside the box and listen to what your employees tell you.

    Pros

    No micro-managing (unless client is unhappy), corporate card for expenses, no decrease in pay for bench time

    Cons

    No opportunity for offsite training if you are working and making money for the company

    Advice to Management

    Stop making changes to processes before you ask the people in the field.
