    I worked at Entree Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Entree is great mainly because of the office space/location and the exposure to high quality work. It's a rarity to find anyone at Entree that is lazy about their work--the drive to create pieces for clients is very high. There are some very kind people working there as well, and ordering meals for the team helps on those long days. Some of the upper management are genuinely kind and will do their best to help you grow.

    Cons

    My biggest issue that drove me to leave Entree was the communication between workers and management. If someone has a complaint about the quality of your work, the usual pattern is that the team gossips about you and then will go to your department head instead of coming to you directly to fix an issue. Then there is a gulf of time where you think things are fine, and then you get called into the office and have a bomb dropped on you. It is incredibly demoralizing and myself and several other coworkers dealt with this problem time and again. Also, if you are coming in from jersey, you had better bargain up to a higher salary or you will end up making no money at all. A majority of one's paycheck will end up in the pockets of NJ transit. There is also a mean girl mentality in some departments, mainly in accounts and project management. Many girls fresh out of college who think having a grown up job makes them grown (on the contrary, there were lots of unpleasant office politics and gossip going on). Training was also a bit of a disaster. If you don't get things on the first try, you will be scrambling to understand as you go along--some of this comes from the fact that many employees are beginners in their careers. They need to stop marketing themselves as a teaching agency when their real approach is baptism by fire. Hours are LONG and sometimes unbearable. This is often exacerbated by the fact that some of the project coordinators do not have a clear understanding of how long projects take to design and edit before sending to the client. Unrealistic deadlines were a constant problem.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending so much time in hot sheet meetings (these chew up valuable work hours in the morning) and spend more time on intro training for new hires so that there are less "learn as you go" moments further into their employment. Also reign in employees who gossip and teach them to speak to individuals privately before running to their boss. It's honestly a maturity issue. Entree has great work and lots of potential--but it is really squandered by long hours/burnout, poor project management, and complicated dynamics between workers and management.

    I have been working at Entree Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Multiple brand exposure and great learning opportunities if you can keep up with the pace and the "figure it out on your own" attitude. There are some amazing people in each department to learn from if you get to work with them.

    Cons

    The review from April 11, 2018 hits it right on the nose. Definite cliquey "Mean girl" culture exists which is annoying to navigate when you just want to learn and grow.

    Advice to Management

    Hire staff, invest in them, and get more involved with the day-to-day business. Focusing on new business and then dumping it on untrained and overworked staff is not a plan for success.

    I worked at Entree Health full-time

    Pros

    Entree gives you the opportunity to own your work and establish yourself early on in your career. You are given the chance to interact with clients and work on an abundance of meaningful projects in the market access space.

    Cons

    There is no rhyme or reason to organizational aspect of this agency. Turn over is so rapid and senior management is horrible at staffing appropriately. You will constantly find yourself unable to grow and instead, doing the job of three other people because upper management refuses to hire the correct support.

    The more tenured employees are very cliquey and quite mean, which makes it an unwelcoming environment at times.

    Advice to Management

    I wish upper management would actually understand that the issue starts at the foundation of the agency and not necessarily "needing new business." Invest in your employees, develop them, and train them. Do not just feed them to the fire and hope that "they'll figure it out." People are leaving over and over again for this same reason. Employees should come first, then you can focus on new business once you have a stable home base.

    Pros

    Entree offers an intelligent, diverse and collaborative culture along with the opportunity to own the work you produce and learn from your counterparts.

    Cons

    There was a big disconnect between leadership and those devoted to the day-to-day work. The gap caused numerous issues impacting work-life balance, guidance for a successful career trajectory and job satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    1. Ensure management has the tools and time to develop strong leadership skills
    2. Invest in your employees, taking into account their workload to prevent burnout

    I worked at Entree Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Omnicom health provides a very competitive benefits and compensation package. They also promote quickly, for better or worse. For someone who is hungry, aggressive and wants to be successful this is a good place. However, it can be very cut throat. It has a law firm or wall street culture.

    Cons

    Always understaffed and everyone is overworked. Junior level employees in all departments are not well versed in managed care and entree does little to educate. They throw everyone into the fire and have an "only the strong survive mentality". They have a very high turnover rate; avg .8/month.

    Advice to Management

    The turnover rate is way too high and often for the same reasons. Don't be so arrogant; change is needed.

    Pros

    Creative energy, multiple brand exposure, a few excellent managers

    Cons

    Unrealistic project timelines. Very long work hours. Members promoted not on skills but relationship with senior management.

    Advice to Management

    really listen to employees and not just provide lip service

    Pros

    The people are fantastic. One of the best agencies I've seen for people to collaborate together. Working together with any of the team's, they are close-knit and work well together, taking a some-what difficult topic and making it fun to work together.

    Cons

    -Management transparency could be improved. Town hall meetings provide some of this, but as a smaller size (in comparison to other agencies), the partners could be more in tune with the rank and file.

    Advice to Management

    Sit down and chat with your employees once in awhile

    Pros

    This is a great place to work. My coworkers are all very friendly and welcoming; lots of young people. They care a lot about nurturing talent.

    Cons

    The hours can be erratic - you go through really busy periods and then slower periods. But overall people are good about adapting and adjusting schedules to help each other out.

    Advice to Management

    There's a good culture of mentorship in place. Ensure that stays that way! And keep providing all the free food!

    Pros

    -A smart, positive, fun group of people that work together to produce great work
    -Strong, process-driven teams that strive for quality control
    -Great culture with people who care about each other and the company
    -Unprofessional/aggressive behavior is NOT rewarded (unlike other, larger agencies)
    -Focus on teamwork and work-life balance are priorities
    -Senior staff willing to spend time mentoring others as needed

    Cons

    -No agency is perfect, but we have a great team and atmosphere. As a rule, when things get tense, people ramp up support for each other and overcome it
    -Payer audience can be a challenge and requires out-of-the-box thinking

    Advice to Management

    Continue developing people at every level with training and mentoring. There are a lot of smart, talented people who are dedicated to the company and who appreciate those efforts.
