Employee Reviews

  • “As with most companies, layoffs were largely ‘first in, first out’. Although we did have layoffs, I'm confident upper management did everything they could to avoid layoffs, such as partners taking pay cuts and canceling one closure week. Additionally, we are conscious about not over-hiring now as we get back on our growth plan, so if you see an application opening, that means we truly need someone.”

  • “Family-like consulting firm with deep and varied knowledge in the healthcare industry.”

  • “HA is set apart from other firms with its dedication to fostering an excellent work culture and providing the opportunities for individuals to grow every day.”

  • “Really outstanding company culture that prioritizes employee well-being, work-life balance, and the cohesion of the office.”

We want you to brainstorm with us, think creatively, and show that you really understand the problem.”

  • “Four case interviews all with market sizing and questions to test your knowledge of the healthcare industry and business acumen.”

  • “Ideal candidate is someone who can approach a problem logically, explain their approach clearly and concisely, and work well in teams. Our interview process is typically a phone screen followed by two interview rounds. We are good about calling candidates back, even if we don't give an offer.”

  • “We are looking for candidates that are able to combine a background in healthcare or life sciences with a strong business acumen.
