Healthcare Researcher (Current Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – March 19, 2017
Altarum is a fantastic and enjoyable place to work, whether part-time, full-time, or in an internship. The people are great, as is the atmosphere. Management is very thoughtful and helpful towards both your goals within the organization and your long-term career goals. I highly recommend Altarum.
Posh office environment with educated, click centered staff
Facilities Assistant (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – January 29, 2017
My experience at this company started out positive and ended with bitter memories. There is extremely high turnover and much of the staff is disrespectful to those in lower positions and very self-centered both individually and as a department or group. There is little chance for advancement unless you start out at a high level. There is a lot of gossip and negative behavior that I found distasteful and not beneficial to a healthy, happy workplace.
Very high tech and well-kept environment, frequent free food, competative pay
Health insurance with high deductables, little flexibility with hours in my role, overall attitude of culture
Oral Health Implementation Specialist (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – July 14, 2016

Analyst II (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 18, 2016
Altarum is full of really smart, dedicated people. The work culture is inconsistent across groups and projects, and so is the management, job security, and overall working environment. The upper end of the management makes over half a million dollars a year, in contrast with the vast majority of workers, who make well under $100K. Most consultants/analysts make around $75 - $80 K, and that is only the beginning of disparities between management and the rest of the company. I would recommend this company for only certain groups and managers, and would not recommend it for others. Overall, the company's benefits are very poor, and on the low end for most workers.
Administrative Assistant for HR (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – March 15, 2015
The team there is great, a wonderful group of people who actually CARE! There was never a day that I dreaded going to work. I went to work had a great day and left happy. I actually looked forward to going into the office everyday.
n/a (Former Employee) – Silver Spring – May 30, 2014
DO NOT APPLY FOR THIS POSITION EXPECTING TO BE A COORDINATOR! You will be a receptionist and very rarely will you be given the opportunity to work with the conference department. There's no growth within the company, you will not work directly with clients. If you're looking to learn and grow within the company, this is not the position for you.
Purchasing Agent (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – June 7, 2013
I was honored to be part of a family that has such strong convictions towards their Values and Missions. The commitment of helping others is very strong. I'm so happy I worked at Altarum Institute for 17 years! Every aspect of the company, the values, the mission and the commitment from the family of employees make every day a GREAT day!"
flexible work schedule, free parking, casual dress code, travel for conferences is available and encouraged, will pay for further education
Altarum Insititute is a non-profit organization. The experience there has been outstanding. The Management team is very hands on and takes the time to train their employees so that they can succeed within the organization.
Copy Editor (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 4, 2013
In keeping with its health care focus, Altarum strove to keep its own employees fit and healthy, not just with medical coverage but with posted tips, personal challenges, and eventually free gym memberships. From what I could tell, it accommodated all sorts of scheduling conflicts nicely. Most employees were pleasant and seemed satisfied even on busy days; the rest did not stay long.
Client Services Manager, M-CEITA (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – May 15, 2013
I met many great folks during my time at Altarum. I would like to have stayed-on with the Institute after my grant program ended, but circumstances did not allow it (no suitable position for me, due to financial pressures & cut-backs).
Flexible work schedule
Limited options for promotion or lateral move for staff dedicated to a grant program
