Pros

People are amazingly friendly and nice. Most of the principals have their doors open and you can walk in and talk to them at any time. Project work varies and project leaders will usually give you a lot of freedom to take on the project.

Cons

The work may become mundane and repeat in some cases Focused on Pharmaceuticals in some of the major offices but this varies depending on the location of the office

    Pros

    Incredibly smart colleagues (more of a function of rigorous hiring process than people or professional development), good reputation with clients in pharma industry

    Cons

    No concept of people or professional development (only for name sake). Aspires to be a meritocracy but performance review based on whims and mood of Office Managing Principal Partners are scared to be challenged to take up new areas and as a result the focus continues to be Pharma -> Commercial -> Sales Operations and in the limited space, the top is becoming extremely crowded

    Advice to Management

    Create levels within partners and introduce review process for them so that they continue to be challenged Challenge senior partners to replicate success stories at other clients or other industries Seriously believe and focus on professional development of people
