Life Sciences Consulting
Hi everyone. Looking to get into Life Sciences Consulting. Was wondering if I could please talk to anyone that works at life science consulting companies? Thank you.
Anyone at ZS willing to talk about the strategy insights & planning practice? Found a role I’m interested in and would like to learn more about the work, firm culture etc.
How do consulting levels map to big pharma levels? Is it normally at least one full level upgrade to leave consulting (EM -> Director)?
I have been an independent consultant for last 10 years in EMR implementation with the experience of working with CXO’s. Any good leads for big consulting firms or tech firms?
I am very interested in exiting to pharma. If I get staffed on life sciences cases at Parthenon, it is most always an asset diligence. In terms of exit placement, would ClearView position me better?
PhD MBA post doc. I do Fed work/genomic medicine implementation strategy & policy. What is the chance I turn commercial in a few year? Best approach? Thanks!
What are the pros/cons of pharma as an industry exit compared to tech/other industries? It doesn’t appear to be that lucrative...
4.5 YoE as an individual contributor. Should I transition into a manager role or keep working on my individual skillsets? Hesitant to become manager too early. What have your career paths looked like?
EM at a boutique with 6 mos in role thinking about applying to MBB. Is it possible to lateral to EM or do you need to take a title hit? Is this worth it?
What is the salary trajectory like in Pharma? From Senior Manager -> Associate Director -> Director, etc.
Any tips for an incoming entry-level to prepare themselves for life sciences consulting? Any podcasts worth listening to/classes in college that were helpful/etc? Thanks!
For you experienced consultants, what were some impactful changes (good/bad) that you experienced moving from a broader general firm (big 4,MBB, etc) to a boutique /LS specific firm (ZS, putnam, etc)?
Trinity Life Sciences vs. Clearview HCP? Deciding between the two and would love to hear your thoughts.
What is the most you can make in life science strategy consultant without bringing in new clients / selling projects?
