I worked at Pharsight full-time (More than 5 years)
A good environment for a first or second position. Whether on the Software or Consulting side of the business you will be exposed to a variety of projects which will give you a well rounded base from which to begin your career.
With ownership by private equity the focus is heavy on near term financials and less on building great product or services - this is not to say that Pharsight does not have good products but that these are becoming legacy products.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pharsight (Raleigh, NC) in October 2009.
Very free form. Rapid fire questions from a panel. Be prepared.
