    Unpleasant and meager use of my time

    Pros

    You can learn a decent amount about pharma consulting and there are interesting things going on with the company's trajectory.

    Cons

    Projects are focused on value strategy and market access/pricing, after two or three projects, you've practically done them all. Disjointed offices and practices within the firm results to limited amount of exposure to different projects as well as the limited amount of responsibilities given to junior members; expect to spend a painful amount of hours reading syndicated reports and stressing over tedious powerpoint adjustments. Long hours with too few weekends to yourself.

    Culture is overall collaborative, but isolation is not uncommon and new hires are not welcomed warmly. Expired members are not treated with respect or courtesy. Management is preoccupied with making a point that they often times simply lack decency and professionalism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your workers, their time, and encourage growth.

    I have been working at PriceSpective

    Pros

    Many opportunities to spend a lot of hours at work with no recognition. Excellent lack of communication skills and great poor training. Most people are good at heart. You can wear jeans to work on most informal days. There's always a lot of parking in the parking lot. The sandwich joint next door has good bread.

    Cons

    Never a time when there;s no work to do. Too few times when the weekend is yours. People keep quitting so work load just keeps getting more and more. Senior management ony lives in LA and UK - Philadelphia only staffed with "managers" who don't even do good job.

    Small company with good growth opportunities

    Current Employee - Senior Analyst  in  Philadelphia, PA
    Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at PriceSpective

    Pros

    Because PriceSpective is a small company, there is a large potential for growth within the organization. It is a very positive work environment that encourages personal development. The experience gained through project work and business development is invaluable to junior staff looking to build their resumes.

    Cons

    Not unlike other consulting firms, there is a significant time commitment and it can be difficult at times to maintain work / life balance. Also, as a small company the absence of a well developed infrastructure for data management can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training protocols for new employees could be better developed to ensure that all of the staff is working to their full potential within the company's framework.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1, need more incentive on compensations; 2, integration process should be faster after acquisition by ICON

    I have been working at PriceSpective

    Pros

    The work is stimulating even for a specialized consulting company. Projects across many disease areas and scopes will allow you to learn a lot and fast. From big pharma clients to smaller ones, you'll get it all. Here you are valued by the quality of your work and there is a meritocracy in place. Career progression is not just a buzz word and actually a real thing - I was surprised to see this was an issue with other reviewers. People are friendly More senior level folks are competent and knowledgeable, so no despairing over dumb bosses. Formal training is good, but it can be a couple of months before you get any, so get ready to hit the ground running. However, people are truly available to assist you in anything you need and will ease you in your responsibilities.

    Cons

    After looking at some of the previous reviews, let's get something clear: this is a consulting company so no chance for 9 to 5, and expecting it is naive. The pressure to deliver can be considerable at times and high turnover, so no room for slacking. Another thing, and not necessarily a con is that this is a company specialized in pharma pricing and market access - it's all we do! If you are looking for sales force optimization, IT implementation or other general management consulting type of projects, this is not the right place for you.
