No suprise considering IQVIA is a significant step-down compared to Big 4.

funny

C3 - Your data point is incorrect. All of the Big4 strategy practice have lots of Ivy league graduates

Hmmm I’ve had a very different experience than OP - project complexity isn’t that hard but the fact that IQVIA has multi-project staffing model always throws me off...when there’s lulls it’s nice but when it’s busy it can be hell

OP what type of work were you doing in the Big 4?

Strat

@OP, keep in mind that our strat consulting division is much smaller company than your former company. IE the number of big4 consultants that have joined us over the last few months are very few..

I was at one of those

What are they paying you OP

C1 - I guess u need to understand that big4 is no where closer to iqvia when it comes to Healthcare data science and strategy. Please come out of ur well.

Also, does IQVIa give out company AMEXs? Why dont i have one of those? I came from Strategy& into BD..pay is the same

The two consulting teams get AMEX cards as the associate level. Some of the other teams like Commercial Services Delivery don’t get AMEX cards until Engagement Manager level.

I had to check in my bag because of no overhead space. My bag got damaged (my wheel is loose and about to come off). Has anyone ever experienced this? Has the airline helped you replace it?

Which one is good to Join in terms of work life balance.
