To answer your second question. Hours aren’t good lol

like

I’m on 80. This is highly project dependent

Hours are usually 60+. Topics/ clients strongly differs by region. Europe much more R&D, Digital and some commercial. US and Asia 90% operations.

The 2nd question must be a joke. We have a good # of clients in pharma— not too sure about biotech but it’s not out of the realm of possibility. What kind of work do you want to do though?

like

I'm interested in advanced modalities, clinical development, pipeline, portfolios, etc. Not saying I don't like other works but want to at least keep close to R&D.

It is a very small practice with quirky people. Look elsewhere.

Just switched jobs. Old 401k has more than $5k and new 401k is with a different provider. Is there any reason whatsoever to move the old 401k cash anywhere, either to the new 401k or to an IRA?

And I can transfer it over to a new IRA or new 401k anytime, even years in the future, right? Given that no distribution will come to force the 60 day rule?
