Young company with strong training and development opportunities
Manager of Operations (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – September 24, 2014
My time at the Advisory Board has been a fantastic experience growing and learning about healthcare, project management, team management and working with executives. My role oscillates between daily operational tasks (managing my team of entry-level staff, ongoing needs, regular salesforce and updates, and rotating seasonal tasks like bi-annual review periods), and longer term strategic goals (launching a new training program, updating our data systems to align better with executive decision making, promoting a new technology for work life balance, and managing any current campaigns). The hardest part of the job would have to be the rapid change of direction from our executive team, especially with regard to high-tension issues. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the positive impact of my work on the team I work with. My goal is to leave the department a little better than how I received it.
open communication with leaders, abundant training opportunities, promotions based on performance, incentives for hard work
lack of transparency, difficult work life balance, confusing career pathing at times
