In the long-term yes. Also year to year raises and bonuses are generally much higher. And promotions are faster and easier to get (you don’t have to wait for your manager to move up/retire to get a promo).

Some people don’t have the skills or network to exit to a comparable or higher paying role in industry, depending on their current level. Career progression is usually slower in industry so that’s another reason people stay.

Slower how so? Interested to know more

OP, Fairfax Inova has a strong epidemiology department and research analytics group.

Good to know! I used to work at INOVA as an intern, would love to go back doing analyticswork.

If you have two years experience, I would stay a little longer until you get a solid mid to senior leadership experience. You’ll be able to negotiate better salary and higher level positions later on. But by all means, start networking with recruiters now and build that relationship.

*Analyst with 2 years experience. Either stick it out longer in consulting to get a title bump or you will be entry level or entry level +1

Agreed that’s the goal so far. And consultant lol I’m in Advisory before analyst role existed 😅

Because I’m single and I probably will stay single for the foreseeable future :)

Does anyone know what can be done for erroneous negative reviews on health grades or similar websites? There’s a patient who wrote a review about me and I checked months worth of notes - I never saw this patient. She cited a virtual visit that we don’t do at the office and said the appointment was at a time I wasn’t at the office. Not sure why they wrote the review but I wish it could be removed because I’m worried it will affect my future career prospects. Thanks!
