Please don’t call me dumb for asking this but how would you describe healthcare consulting for dummies? I’m a Sr Analyst interested in healthcare (studied bioengineering, internships in med devices) and like my consulting career so far (tech strategy) but don’t really understand the major capabilities/functional silos of the sector

I would also encourage you to pick a large pharma company and go through their website thoroughly, you can get a pretty good estimate of different divisions. And then pick the same company in LinkedIn and filter by President and SVP you'll know how many functional heads. Hope this helps

Came across the concept of “cash envelope stuffing” on youtube. Seems like a pretty good concept to avoid overspending on each category of expenses.

Where I allocate a set budgeted amount of money each month, to each bank account tagged for a specific category (groceries, vacation, emergency fund, etc). Is this something you have tried or have any ideas on how to go about it? Do you recommend this?

I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
