Does anyone have an idea on what salary should be expected when applying to a major biotech company (GSK, Novartis, J&J, AbbVie etc...) as an entry level (3 years experience) Pharmacology & Toxicology master degree with an emphasis in Drug Discovery and Development with technical expertise in electrophysiology/neuroscience domain (several published papers on sodium channels) ?

Depends on specific job and company but I’d guess 70-85k based on what you’ve said. If you have 3 years exp I wouldn’t consider yourself entry level so you may be able to qualify for a more senior position. Check Glassdoor for more specific salaries

It really depends on location, can you provide more info?

Houston area or texas?

Are you looking for a banch work? If not, the academic experience will not help on the salary negotiation.

I did some entrepreneurship type things as well as bench work! Does that help?

Especially in discovery, most companies are strictly looking for someone with a PhD, so it’s a tough field to get into. Without a doctorate, many companies will limit their salaries and titles available to uou regardless of how many years of experience you have. If you can find MS level positions, I would guess you’d look for a salary in the 80-90k range.

Oh thank you for the advise!

I started a new job a month ago and I hate it! I hate the culture (there is no culture) the way that they communicate (no meetings everything in slack) and the way that they work (alone) It feels pretty much like I am freelancing and I thrive in collaborative environment. I have never felt this isolated in my whole life. It sucks.
Has anyone been in that situation? If I look for another job, should I remove that experience from my linked in? Or should I talk about that if I get interviews?
