I’ve been hired by a health benefits startup with only consulting experience. Any recommendations for books, blogs, or online course material to get myself as oriented as possible before starting in 2 weeks?

Ahhhh

What kind of startup? Mine are payer focused: I listen to the podcast The Next Big Thing In Health, it’s by AHIP. Mintel Compremedia has webinars. I also read Fierce Healthcare and health stories in mainstream media, everything from Kaiser Health News to Buzzfeed because I want to understand public perception as much as developing expertise. And Dr. Glaucomaflecken just for fun.

Do note that I obviously work for Mercer but we publish a lot of great research and industry trends in the H&B space across our website and social media outlets.

H&B consulting was a pivot for me when I got in and a lot of my knowledge ended up coming from just on the job training tbh.

Thanks everybody for the tips! I might message you for any other insights, happy to share name of company over DM

Mainly wonder if IB is a must have box to check, or if you can work your way up the ladder without.

The two deals I had worked for months and in procurement Feb 1 close last week at 445k & $399k. $60+k comm to new AE - $0 to me. 😩

I recently (1+ yr ago) transitioned from consulting to industry. The hours are much better. Total comp is less than what I was making on the consulting side (-15% less). My schedule is much better, and I have a good routine outside of work. However, I don't feel accomplished at my current role and feel like I am not learning as much. I was hoping that I would make up for that comp difference in a year or two but upward mobility seems limited. Is it too soon to look for another job?
