If we had an advertising union no one would be worried if their projects paused right now because they would have health care and a weekly stipend if laid off. Unionize now!

The fat cat holding companies would never go for it, and the small independent shops would likely struggle to stay afloat. But I agree 100% that something needs to change soon because we’re all in danger of experiencing a world of hurt over this.

Does anyone here have any guidance or experience in moving from big pharma to VC-backed biotech/ med-tech/ next gen healthcare companies on the west coast? TIA Former consultant with 3+ YOE at 2 big pharma after my consulting stint. Now I am looking for something more exciting, with more ownership, more nimble and of course the equity upside. (Ps If you don’t have anything valuable to add, it is better to hold off on your opinion) Comp does not matter, due to my partner’s high income.

To everyone interviewing, to hopefully calm some nerves: The process is really long. Not hearing back from the recruiter for a few days, or even weeks, is completely normal. There can be multiple weeks between rounds and then multiple weeks before you get feedback. Don’t think too much into it. There is no indication of positive or negative by no response. On average it takes 3+ months, and usually 2+ application attempts, to get hired. Good luck! 🍀
