How is Strategy& life sciences consulting different from ZS or IQVIA strategy consulting from the nature of engagements/projects standpoint? What type of roles you can exit to in the industry from each of these companies?

IQVIA and ZS specialize in commercial and portfolio strategy, they command a deep knowledge of the drugs, the propensity to pay, physician Markets etc. S& is more Ops and supply chain strategy, very limited exposure to commercial and enterprise strategy.

Agree, but I need to add that strategy is maybe ~30-40% of our bis tops and significant chunk of it is not on global, but regional / BU level with the rest being tech & Ops

I may characterize it a bit differently to S&1. Note that PwC and S& also work closely together in life sciences. Certainly for some Big Pharma clients the only types of engagements we deliver are ops, IT, implementation. However, we have deep relationships with a specific set of firms (ranging from big pharma to small biotechs) and strong specializations in certain areas (e.g. vaccines) that lead to a regular flow of projects that include strategy. The strategy projects are mostly BU-level, though we do advise CEO and C-suite of mid-sized firms.

I was an MBA intern and FT hire at Deloitte. Been here 3 years, been at M for the last year. I have seen others leave at this point in their careers and go direct to SM/director roles in industry, but as I start applying for jobs and have convos with recruiters, I have had more than one say that I’m light on YOE and that for that reason alone I am either not considered for a SM role or unlikely to have my salary expectations met. How can I combat/preempt this? Others clearly have.

Or should I do the job and then prove myself then talk about raise. I have more experience than the senior members of my team. New leadership than when I was hired

Have heard from a few MBB friends that new hires with offers aren’t starting till end of year. Any chance of a lateral move right now?
