I am leaving retail pharmacy after 15 years. I am opening a 403b pharmacy for a FQHC. I don't believe that retail pharmacy will be able to sustain itself with patient costs skyrocketing. I think people will become enraged or indifferent enough to allow the federal government to take over healthcare. How many times do we see people getting free prescriptions via government coverage that drive better cars than we do?

Did you get a contract with federally qualified health center or are you still in the process? Are you working with a lawyer too?

I am actually going to be an employee of this federally qualified health center (FQHC). Right now, contract pharmacies are being railroaded by manufacturers and these savings aren't materializing and these populations are having trouble getting their medications.

I know. OP said 403b 😂

so these same people are filling their prescriptions at your pharmacy.. imagine if they didn’t have medicaid or healthcare insurance or money!! they would not fill any prescriptions and ultimately you would go out of business!!! society will always need healthcare practitioners including pharmacists

Our techs are unionized and the only thing they have pushed successfully is to increase starting rates while screwing the techs with all of the experience and years of service. I am a member of professional organizations but I hate seeing someone getting paid not to work in a pharmacy (influencers, politicians or leadership) being responsible for improving my pharmacy work life.

Landed an interview with MBB for a knowledge analyst-aligned role. But I'm concerned that despite being a MBB company w/ 20% higher salary, this may be seen as a step down as I'm currently client facing and the role (as I understand it) would be back office/non-client facing.

Is it even worth interviewing if I'm already concerned, or wait until/if I have an offer?

Not sure if this has been a discussion topic recently, but do all the b4 experienced folks agree that the short staffing at the big4 has exponentially increased in the last few years and progressively getting worse? It seems like the newer generation (who are now graduating college or in early senior years) is rejecting the public accounting lifestyle. Industry jobs so plenty nowadays never seen before. Where do you see this trend headed and the situation of the big4 firms in 5-10 years?
