Meh

I'm seriously many steps distant from the life sciences world, and likely people from MBB/LEK/ZS/etc. can provide more context here:

But isn't "biotech" or "life sciences" for that matter too broad of a categorization for anyone to be considered a leader?

In my mind, Genentech, GSK, Pfizer, Novartis, Sanofi and the rest of the usual suspects likely all share the same core competencies, but each company might have an edge on each other in specific verticals or products (i.e., rare disease treatments or breast cancer research). Mind you I'm just throwing random ideas out here, substantiated by absolutely nothing.

Hoping to learn a thing or two about life sciences (pharmaceutical) players by following your post!

Hello,
I graduated with my MSN with an emphasis in health informatics last year and I am still having difficulty finding a job. Everyone is requiring 3+ years experience.

My company won't give my designer the art director title she deserves because of the association of the word "director". I've explained to them an AD isn't a director level job like a CD is, but they're just so hung up on the word that they're not budging, saying that her having a title with the word "director" would be confusing for some. FML.

But, they've said I could give her any manager level title she wants. What title would you suggest that aligns to AD that I can give her?
