What level would you move to in a pharma company (strategy role) with 6 years of experience in Life Sciences consulting? I’m seeing ADs with at least 5 years more experience. Manager profiles seem to be more aligned with my experience, but I’m not sure if the salary is higher for manager than where I’m at (62k base)

AD You see a lot of ADs with experience because they started from the bottom of the Pharma company or had other non-related experience which you shouldn't account for. I know a few people with 7-8 YoE who exited to Dir. level positions, so 6 years is at least AD. To be frank though your salary is quite low for 6 YoE, I have 4.5 in life sciences consulting and I am at 82k.

Ah sorry didn't get you ;) I didn't research industry that much yet, as I am not looking to leave atm. But I would probably not leave until I can get D or Snr. D level - it takes way too much time to get to those positions in the industry.

It depends on company. I find that the titles are a lot more "junior" at Gilead for example

My favorite part about WFH is that I experience significantly less micro aggressions and/or discrimination than when I used to have to go to the office.

Trying to figure out best way to allocate preparation time. Many thanks 🙏🏻
