Either in a consulting or industry role.
A bit about myself:
- I am a Principal, the first of my class of 120 to be promoted to the rank
- Have degrees in Biology, Chemistry, and Economics from Cornell (top 3% of graduating class)
- Held research roles at Amgen, MD Anderson, Cornell University Biochemistry and the University of Texas Waggoner Center

-Published papers in Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research and PLoS One
Worked at the Austin Technology Incubator

Obvious challenge is limited direct sector experience but my hope is to parlay my digital / payer experience + my training as a scientist into a new role, particularly in the digital health space.

Hi Fishes,

I'm currently in talk of joining ZS Associates, with ~5 YE from industry (healthcare/life science) and 7+ YE in total. It sounds from the recruiter that it's
more likely to come in as an AC first, not a C unless proven otherwise during the interviews. Should I even consider this opportunity since it might be a 'step-down’ from my current position, and might not look as good in my resume? Is it true levels at ZS are higher than other firms, MBB, B4, T2?
