I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time (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 (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 Management

    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.

    I worked at Triage Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Lots of travel and rotating projects every 3-4 months; ability to learn a lot of information and get promoted quickly (although work gets monotonous fast)
    * Good work/life balance for consulting work
    * Good intentions from leadership to create a team-based, community-conscious company culture

    Cons

    * Lack of diversity and recruiting to fit a mold. If you do not fit it, you will have a hard time making friends, promoting your career, or keeping your sanity. There's a palpable cult-like feeling that extends beyond the job at the office into quasi-required happy hours and other at-work and "off campus" events. Living in (and never leaving) the Marina is basically an unspoken pre-requisite.
    * Immaturity among those promoted to Seniors/Managers. Like others have mentioned, it's like a college environment, meaning there's cliques, sorority/fraternity bonds and occasional crying in the women's restroom. Because most everyone is promoted after 21 months, and for most this is their first time managing people, there can be a lack of solid leadership on projects. Especially if you've had college jobs or previous work experience, the poor management and often immature manner of how issues/problems are dealt with can be appalling. Lots of petty finger pointing, he said/she said, passive aggressiveness and indifferent-to-poor treatment to those that aren't part of the Senior's "clique". Upper management seems to be blind to most of the day-to-day problems on projects.
    * Narrow focus. This is a niche business with most managers being promoted from within. Many managers have never had outside corporate experience, so their perspectives on healthcare, leadership, corporate culture, etc. is limited to Triage. The longer you stay, the less opportunities you will have in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    While hiring to fit a particular "culture" has it's strengths, consider adding more diversity to your team, as this will bring new ideas, strengths and perspectives. Especially at the managerial level, outside perspectives would be helpful. Upper management should be aware of the pettiness and favoritism happening at the day-to-day level on projects. Promotions should be based on potential to lead/manager, not just time in the position or technical skills.
