Pharma and Health Advertising

It's a bad time to be in consumer ad land. Would you say healthcare agencies are facing similar account loss and hiring freezes across the board?

Good agencies mitigate phase 3 losses by building strong relationships with client teams so that when they’re moved to a pipeline drug, they ask you to follow and begin again. Also, because of the longer term nature of launching drugs, pharma companies have learned to demand that the day to day teams, from top to bottom, are represented in the pitch. They’ve been burned too much. This means pharma agencies need to keep people for pitches. Having said that, if a pharma agency isn’t that good to begin with, once they lose business, the spiral downward can be lightning quick.

Nope. I get tons of recruiter outreach and we are growing quickly and always hiring. So many new faces lately.

It’s not even close to being as bad as general consumer

The entire AOR model is still the standard in healthcare based on the lifecycle of medications. So there’s stability, but also a long time getting to anything produced.

Depends on where you are. Pharma can be more self liquidating in that if you’re working a launch and the label doesn’t get approved you’re toast. Also, some (er most) pharma agencies are 10 years behind modern marketing, especially if they have limited digital capabilities and are just HCP.

We are hiring for healthcare, challenged to find people with enough paid social.

Our pond is stocked never experienced anything like this in consumer. I came here Bc consumer was getting so bad. Making $$$$$$$$ and working on fun book stuff on side. Keeping low profile with asshole recruiters and waiting for consumer world to get strong again. 💪

People who front load their 401k: how or why do you do it? I always set to max out in 6 months or less bc I liked extra cash flow the 2nd half of the year for summer/holiday spending...until 2020. An unexpected job change and the market dropping significantly made me see why you shouldn’t. But come this New Year and I’m itching to go back to front loading, it’s mostly psychological. Does time in the market beat timing the market, or is dollar cost averaging the better way to go?

Have interviewed with Haas, Ross, McCombs, Tuck, and Anderson for R2 and am also moving forward in the interview process with Abobe. Does anyone know if people are able to make the transition from an Adobe pre-sales role to Product Management? If so, I would consider skipping the MBA. Thoughts?

Are secondments for salary partners generally a nudge out the door? My spouse is a salary partner at an AmLaw200 firm.

In a later conversation, she told the PG leader her goal is equity (not this year but eventually). The PG leader says she is on track but also that the group has recently made new equity partners and “everything could change tomorrow.” Is she being nudged?

What do you wish you knew when you were asking for your first raise? I’m well over half a year from that conversation but it’s on my mind. Me and my partner have sold a good deal of work but is that enough? Because there are times when I know I could have given more to a project, but I choose my mental health instead. This is so toxic but I feel like I’m not pulling enough all-nighters to earn a raise—like it’s some unspoken rule that my whole team is thinking but not voicing.
