Which one to go for - IQVIA strategy or an obscure or largely unknown boutique LS consulting which is paying ~10% to 15% more, from exit to industry and future growth perspective?

In this scenario, l think IQVIA would make sense given it can open more doors for you in LS industry. Potentially allow you to network with other IQVIA folks who exited to the industry before.

Obscure boutique would need 30%+ increase for me. Gotta think future prospects

I would look at that other firm and see what’s the growth opportunities there looking like, who’s heading the ship etc. I am currently at a firm that is no longer boutique but was one just a few years ago. Folks that stuck around had a great career.

Boutique, as long as the leadership, path forward and exits people have made in the past 2 years are reasonable.

What’s largely unknown boutique? I took a boutique (Putnam associates) over iqvia

Personally think it’s a stronger brand and focus on life science strategy. Culture feels more like a firm, less like a large multi faceted life science companh

funny

What's your offer for IQVIA? What is the level? Two things I find in IQVIA's favor: 1. Better than average (but worse than MBB) 401k match at 4.5% 2. Not a ton of travel (IMSCG may be a little different than other lines of business)

Could you please tell us which boutique? Are you based in EU or US?
