Do you think big pharma is going to make it? Or is the downfall already here?

Big pharma is fine. Biotech needs interest rates to come down


People still die, that still sucks - trying to solve that problem remains valuable. Pharma isn't going away.


What prompted this question?


The US is the money maker and with IRA looming, AI and bunch of pricing pressures coming, if there is a major hit in the US I don’t know if the current business models are sustainable in the long run. There has to be major consolidation, severe cost cutting, layoffs etc.


Not sure I entirely agree. If you look at some of the IRA drugs, there’s really nodirect competitor that’s better for some of them. They guise under the word “negotiation” but it’s not and they don’t know the impact it’ll have on pharma and innovation in general. It’ll have negative impact for sure.

Has anyone made the jump from in-house legal over to the business side? How did the transition go? Would you do over it again? I work in a niche area (workplace health and safety) and have gotten a promotion in place, but have maxed out my growth in the legal department if I want to stay in safety. Only way for me to be promoted and stay in safety is to jump to the business side but I’m hesitant to give up doing legal work.
