    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Triage offers a comfortable environment to acquire and develop business acumen and professional skills. The management at Triage is very supportive and encouraging. Triage offers the fun of a young company, with the security of a well-established, long-standing organization.

    Cons

    Salaries at Triage are reasonable, but not as competitive as you may find elsewhere. The promotion opportunities are fixed, so regardless of how hard you work you will move at the same pace.

    Advice to Management

    Triage should work on increasing diversity. The office is overwhelmingly white and upper middle class, while this is understandable based on where they recruit from, Triage should make a concerted effort to hire more people who do not fit the white, fraternity/sorority mold.

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

    Pros

    Triage Consulting Group was a wonderful first job out of college. I was able to learn quite a bit about healthcare administration, insurance contracts, and negotiation. The company culture is very strong and the people are great

    Cons

    Though traveling for work initially has its perks, it gets old. However, more and more projects are moving to being fully in the San Francisco office so this may no longer be an issue. Some of the work is a bit tedious but luckily people rotate projects every four months which keeps things interesting

    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    When going through the recruiting process myself, I was instantly drawn to the bright, well-spoken, motivated and fun young professionals behind the Triage table at the Career Fair who clearly genuinely liked each other and liked the work they were doing. Fortunately, they liked me too.
    A few years later, I continue to be impressed by my teammates, my peers, my mentors (official and unofficial) and leadership, and the new associates walking in the door each summer.
    Triage invests so much every new hire: by providing them with a built-in support network with their start groups, mentors, and teams, assigning an on-the-job trainer to guide them through their first months of a steep learning curve and the achievements and mistakes bound to come from the environment, and offering more than three full weeks worth of full-day trainings throughout the first year to build the foundation for a full and positive career. Associates will walk out of their first year with skills ranging from the technical abilities needed to analyze hospital data and recover large amounts of money for clients to the soft skills like public speaking, leadership and project management to impress high-level hospital clients on a day-to-day basis in the Senior Associate position and beyond.
    Above and beyond Triage's investment in the career development of each consultant, this company wouldn't be the place it is without acknowledging the true emphasis on the company's core values: client service, knowledge, relationship, balance, and fun. The first two are obvious choices in a consultancy, but the latter three make Triage unique. Where else will you see Principals and new Associates compete to the bitter end over a for-pride game of Knockout at our annual Team Building, get your entire team and management's buy-in for a company-sponsored sunset cruise around the Bay for a Team Event after work, and want to spend all four lunches and evenings of a travel week with your 20-something year old coworkers who are just as excited to wait in line for the coolest new restaurant, step totally outside their comfort zone in a new workout class, or tag along with you to that one artist that you've been dying to see live? It's apparent that work/life balance is something taken seriously, whether in your day to day use of your time or in your extended plans for using the generous PTO policy.
    Triage is a place where you can learn and grow personally and professionally, make some of the best friends and mentors of your life, and make a quantifiable monetary and meaningful impact on leading hospitals and the people leading them.
    I continue to learn from Triage and Triagers every day, and I'm not done yet.

    Cons

    I've seen other reviews that have cons with valid feelings behind them, but that I simply haven't experienced. In particular, two complaints are boredom, and more recently, a claim that we don't consult. I have found that on each project I've worked on, I've been afforded progressively more responsibilities and the ability to prove myself with additional challenges. Part of this is mindset and looking at each claim and issue with the client as a chance to figure out a puzzle and provide meaningful feedback and process improvement internally and externally. It's true that in your first year you may not see much face-to-face external client time, but you're building the skills and analyzing the data to enable Triage to provide well-researched recommendations to our clients, all while learning the ins and outs of the healthcare system so that you can manage a team in under two years and effectively consult in a multi-billion dollar industry throughout your career. While you may be ready to save the world this week, know that a little bit of committed time to learning and career development will set you up well for success and that things just seem to keep getting better!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look for ways to recognize and reward those who work hard and are doing well, even as monetarily Triage maintains an even payment structure by tenure. Keep the accessibility to management, the emphasis on the small-company feel, and the opportunity to specialize available, especially as the company continues to grow.

    Pros

    Triage is an unbelievable place to launch a career. It's a safe, fun and low stress environment to develop very transfer skills - project management, leadership, technical data analysis, while making life long bonds with co-workers.

    Cons

    At times when you start the work can be somewhat dry and monotonous, just remember that it is an entry level job and that you are building the skills necessary to move into the project management/team lead. If you're not excited about the opportunity for leadership at 21 months in then this probably isn't the right company for you.

    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company creates a culture of equals & a community of fun: I dare you not to find lifelong friends after working a year or two at TCG.
    Insanely great work/life balance.
    If you excel in an area, you will receive more work in that area.
    I could walk into any principal's office at any time and receive great advice on just about anything.

    Cons

    The first year can be monotonous as you learn the work and spend time on the phone.
    Triage pays based off merit or tenure. This creates a culture of openness, but sometimes a "just do enough to get by" vibe that can bother those that do great work and receive the same pay.

    Advice to Management

    Grow out your technology department to create more non-consultant roles for tech-competent staff.

    Company is filled with smart, driven, young professionals. Great culture and work life balance.

    Cons

    Healthcare revenue cycle consulting can get dry after a while.

    Advice to Management

    I took for granted how great the work life balance is at Triage. Try to find ways to show your employees how lucky they are that they can take time off and truly check out. Very unique, especially as you grow in your career!

    Pros

    Great work life balance (45 hour work week), 4 weeks of PTO that you get paid out for each day you don't take, awesome fun and young corporate culture, travel benefits, retention bonus, lots of non-project based work to keep things interesting, great downward communication, down to earth and approachable CEO and management

    Cons

    Not a lot of merit based motivation, it's easy to get in a rut, you can reach a lull between promotions. If you get on a project that doesn't fit your work style, it can be a long rotation. I think pay is fair for the time commitment but you could definitely make more/work longer hours somewhere else

    Advice to Management

    Make merit based motivation, it will keep people interested, you'll get less blind sighted by people leaving if you have more HR check ins than once a year
