    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great experience and transition for right out of college. Traveling with your team is a lot of fun. Pay is competitive with other consulting companies. Majority of employees are young adults, very social. Very interesting work - not many companies out there do healthcare consulting. Great transparency from senior management. Company is growing very fast.

    Cons

    45 hours a week salary and no overtime, have to earn your PTO (tough in the beginning for those who start late fall and want to take multiple days off for holidays, but after a few months super easy). Steep learning curve (but there is a lot of training)

    Pros

    Triage has young, ambitious colleagues and a tremendous culture. The work-life balance is phenomenal for consulting and the company really cares about the well-being of its people.

    Cons

    The work is extremely narrow and can be boring. The pay is only adequate and it's not a true consulting firm - more of an audit/staff-augmentation company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, and try to reward your superstars.

    Pros

    People are very friendly, supportive, and fun. Lot of extroverts and people who can make a good time out of a crappy one (read: Cons). Great leadership, values, and training.

    Cons

    The work itself can be tedious, monotonous, and sometimes, frustrating. You will find yourself thinking "I went to a [probably highly regarded] 4-year university for this?". Some people handle it better than others. Being a good fit in terms of attitude/background is important. Outgoing/highly social individuals will thrive; introverts may benefit less from this environment, though may find it fun nonetheless.

    I worked at Triage Consulting Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are what make this company a great place to work. They are motivated, energetic, self starters, who care about creating and maintaining a great company culture even as the company grows. The promotion track is fast, so you can be managing teams and large projects very early on in your career.

    Cons

    The work can be tedious and mind-numbing at times, and if you aren't interested in staying in the healthcare industry it can be hard to get a comparable job in a different industry, which is why a lot of people leave Triage to get their MBA.

    Pros

    This is an extremely low stress environment, with lots of opportunities to display team communication, leadership, and personal growth. There are many opportunities to grow professionally in this firm, and the network of people is great here.

    Cons

    As a young professional I want to work extremely hard and gain some professional acknowledgement for my efforts. The firm seems to value time spent working over the quality of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer commission based salaries, and more opportunities for bonuses. Also develop a standard career path for analysts as well.

    I have been working at Triage Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    Triage has an amazing company culture: smart, young, motivated, interesting new hires get to learn and grow and eventually manage teams and squads. The organization provides a lot of opportunities to work with different types of people and team sizes and to interact with upper managements and with clients. Plus you get to fully manage projects quite early on. The promotion system works, you need experience in the firm to move up, and the evaluation process pushes everyone to seek to exceed expectations.

    Top Triage Pros:
    - Great company to work for out of college.
    - Mid-size company with an open-door policy that has a lot of sway in the world of healthcare.
    - Very smart workforce that's becoming increasingly diverse in terms of regions and schools represented
    - Opportunity to advance up and get to run teams and train younger Associates
    - Travel, team events, company events: you can't deny Triage has maintained it's strong culture focused on balance and fun and it makes it very hard to leave. A lot of people make some of their best lifelong friends at Triage.
    - Internal opportunities (squad leadership, trainings, recruiting involvement, rotations such as Legal and Clinical) allow those that want to take on additional leadership roles.

    Cons

    The works definitely gets monotonous, but, there is always a way to find someway to get into something new, whether it's aiming for a rotation or getting really involved in a squad. The repetition eventually weighs most people down, but, those that want to can make Triage their own.

    The travel opportunities are declining and the company hasn't changed enough of the "in town" perks to accommodate, even though profits are out the roof and only continue to grow.

    Main Triage cons:
    - While salaries have increased slightly, the company has room to re-examine the bonus structure, and should. As company profits continue to increase, the bonuses don't necessarily match and yet more and more Seniors and Associates are putting in extra hours and committing to additional work.
    - The company has a lot of amazing alumni that go off to great graduate schools and move into upper level positions after Triage, yet there isn't a culture of promoting alumni advancement outside the company (like supporting time off for graduate school applications) even though those alums are future connections, clients, partnerships, etc. that only make the Triage name stronger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being awesome.
    Keep the culture.
    Be open to change.
    Re-think the potential to hire some roles from the outside, the company can use some new perspectives.
    Don't give up on the importance of "career development."
    Give Associates more room to get creative.
    Re-think investing into your employees' long-term goals.

    A good place to work out of college for 2-4 years, but not where you want to spend your career.

    I worked at Triage Consulting Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Triage holds your hand out of college and introduces you to the world of business through basic training programs, on-the-job training, and endless happy hours.

    Cons

    The work is 10% Consulting and 90% arguing with insurance companies about collections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent in what job you are offering to potential employees. Many students feel that when they are leaving to work at a "Consulting" company, they will spend the majority of their time working on consulting projects. In reality, associates and seniors spend the vast majority of their time arguing with outsourced insurance company representatives with little understanding of correct payment practice.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and generous PTO (4 weeks)
    Kind and friendly coworkers
    Good location in the financial district by the waterfront
    Looks good on paper

    Cons

    Extremely mundane and mind-numbing work (literally everyone stares at the same screen and does the same monotonous task all day—glorified call center rep)
    Non-transferable skills (of the few skills you do learn)
    Stagnant company that is unwilling to consider change, and is not evolving to accommodate the fast-changing healthcare industry
    High lack of diversity (in regard to ethnicity/age/culture/personality)
    Lack of transparency
    Incompetent upper management: Principals often lack strong educational foundations and breadth of work experience outside of Triage. Overall, they lack the analytical skills, business acumen, and professionalism one would expect in higher management.
    Penny-pinching company (eg. red-eye flights to avoid cost of an extra night in a hotel)
    8am-6pm schedule is reasonable but not amazing
    Very high employee turnover that is applauded internally

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
