i recently jumped over to a SM role at Pfizer. Was M1 at Accenture and have 6 years of total experience with 2 in Pharma and 2 in healthcare

helpful

How is the culture at Pfizer, what function? Did you know anyone there to help you support transition or is this new team you are managing?

Depends a bit on your educational background too (i.e., any advanced degree prior to consulting or just bachelors?) For reference, I joined consulting after a terminal degree and landed an AD position (one step above SM) after <1.5 yrs in consulting.

like

Advanced degree can get senior manager role in ~1 year. I've seen analysts exit to senior manager role in 2-3 years

like

2-3 in small and mid pharma. 1-2 years more for large pharma but it depends on your level/promotions in consulting, if you have masters, and if you know the clients based on work you have already done.

Depending on company mine is 10 years or so for senior manager

So I’m having my 3rd interview on Thursday with a company that I previously interviewed with for a different role that they ended up going with an internal candidate after it came down to he and I. Im meeting with the person who would be my boss, who I had met with before and the recruiter is saying it’s just so we can reconnect and discuss the role in more detail. How should I approach this meeting?
