Have done growth strategy work for a med-tech company, opportunity size & go to market strategy for a startup and sales strategy for large pharma cos. Don’t think my experience is super unique at my firm - people won’t work with a startup every day, but there’s plenty of other strategic stuff I haven’t touched - will also depend on level; entry level may be a bit more pigeon holed into specific types of work where they can build experience/expertise.

I’ve worked with Providers, Payers, and Pharma over the past 15 yrs, but enjoyed Pharma / LS the most. Within the Life Science area I’ve done a lot of strategy (which products, which markets, lifecycle management, which companies to acquire or collaborate with, which divisions to divest). The past 4-5 years it’s been a lot of M&A and then back end operational transformation. The big pharma clients are trying to develop more capabilities in house (like digital supply chain) and codify learnings. The last area is innovation in life sceiences and that’s along the lines of partnering and supporting physicians, providers, patients, and payers. There’s a big intersection with digital here and many executive workshops around what should we be doing now, in 5 / 10 / 15 years. There’s also the geographic dimension, what works in US usually needs to be changed for EU, Japan, Australia, etc..

Roommate works in healthcare consulting. Does strategy work - helping pharma companies decide which diseases to point their drugs towards (for those that are effective towards multiple). Go to market strategy. New product strategy. Some pricing (but minimal at her firm). I think people’s experiences and perceptions of HC consulting REALLY depends on the firm.

I need out of M&A. I like the people, I like the work, I even like most of the clients, but my health can’t take the fire drills.

We have resource but nobody with enough deal knowledge so it’s two people trying to get everything out while two first years wait on our instructions but can’t do much.
