Does Heartbeat offer massages?

Pros

As someone who has moved onto other opportunities, I can confirm that there is no place like Heartbeat - culture and people wise. Coworkers become best friends and (mostly) everyone gets along with very little cliquey feelings. Some of the smartest and kindest people work here and that's what makes coming to work every day great. Seriously, Heartbeat hires fun, silly, and kind GENIUSES - specifically in the strategy department. You will never find a place like this because of the people. Diversity is amazing as well. A lot of POC and LGBTQ+ community. Specific clubs/events were created to support these groups. The events and little day-to-day activities that leadership puts on are always fun and make you feel like they really care (employee appreciation week is incredible). They sometimes bring in companies to do in-office massages. You cannot make this up. Benefits are amazing as well. SO much time off, paid medical leave if needed, comp days as rewards, pretty good health/dental, as well as other things like $$ for classes, trainings and career development opportunities, health fairs and so much more.

Cons

Work/Life balance sucks. They try their hardest to manage this and Nadine and James especially encourage taking personal time / going home on time, but it just doesn't work with client expectations and an Account team that doesn't consider the team before saying yes to long or hard projects. Promotions/Raises do not happen when they should. There are some books that seem to get promotions and raises many times a year and others that ask for months (sometimes years) and never get what they rightfully deserve. Unfortunately this leads to a lot of turnover.

Advice to Management

Invest in your best talent, or they'll go elsewhere.

How are senior leaders perceived at Heartbeat?

Pros

Many people say that their job is their second home and their colleagues are their second family but at Heartbeat this is not only a saying but a fact. The leadership team is truly invested in everyone's individual goals and facilitating attaining those goals and they take real interest in the Heartbeat community. They promote strong work ethics while also encouraging a healthy live work balance.

Cons

Heartbeat's dedication in supporting the employees in addressing performance limitations at times leads to retaining a talent that ultimately ends up not being a good fit for Heartbeat. This seems to be a top priority for Heartbeat in 2019 and i have no doubt this will be corrected.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing!

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Heartbeat?

Pros

Flat organization that invests in its people that's really trying to change how pharma should advertise. You're going to get really smart people as mentors and they are going to rely on you. The responsibility that is given to people who demonstrate they're hungry and capable is huge.

Cons

Some accounts grind harder than others. All nighters aren't the norm, but you're not leaving at 530 most nights.

Advice to Management

Keep pushing the boundaries. Its rare to hear the managing partners talk about wanting to change the game and then encouraging you to do it. Don't lose that!
