EpicCare Ambulatory Consultant (Former Employee) – Weymouth, MA – March 23, 2016
Terrible Management. Laid off our entire team after we rolled off a long term project that required 5+ days a week of travel. They don't care about people you are a body on a project to them and nothing more.
Associate Consultant (Former Employee) – Weymouth, MA – May 19, 2013
Beacon has laid off about 15 consultants from their associate program since December, and I was one of them. But I am still grateful for the opportunity - they provided me with a certification in Epic Systems (that I could not have gotten without a client sponsor) and an introduction to healthcare consulting. I received great in-house training through my managers and the corporate trainer. In-house resources are awesome. Most of the people I worked with were passionate about the industry, very knowledgeable, and willing to help me learn. Most of my managers were amazing and tried to work around my family/life needs.
However, communication was very weak from upper management. This company has lost a LOT of talent (not the associates) in the last several months - managers, directors and principals have been dropping like flies. Makes you wonder.
Benefits, great travel accommodations, helpful colleagues, team environment
Few opportunities so a lot of layoffs from the "bench, " poor communication from upper management
Associate Consultant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 16, 2013
started off as a great place to work with great future but then they couldnt land any contracts and i was quickly let go due to lack of work. working on site with physicians was challenging and wonderful when i got the chance to. the hardest part was always feeling like my job wasnt safe.
