    I have been working at The Frankel Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the key reasons to choose Frankel Group include:

    Caliber of the people: Colleagues at the Frankel Group are some of the sharpest in the life sciences industry and have extremely deep domain expertise and business insight. You’ll learn something from them every day.

    Content of the work: You will work on highly engaging, challenging projects for life science investors, startups, and mid-size and large- companies. Recent project work has included:
    • A science and commercial-based prioritization of indications and assets for a leading global pharmaceutical company
    • A technology development and strategic partnering/fundraising strategy for an early-stage technology spinout
    • A royalty stream investment due diligence for a leading healthcare private equity investor

    Opportunities for growth: Frankel Group is a meritocracy. As the firm expands headcount and offices, there are plenty of opportunities for personal and professional growth.

    Engaged alumni, who you’ll meet as clients, at social events, or when their company uses one of the board rooms for a meeting.

    Fun, open working culture and flat org structure.

    Transparent and extremely well-managed firm.

    Cons

    Some benefits are lacking (such as cell phones, which are used regularly for work)

    Advice to Management

    Please keep doing what you are doing - bringing in interesting, challenging projects and fostering a fun, transparent and overall great place to work.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Frankel Group in November 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through on-campus recruiting. Submitted resume and cover letter. Heard back in less than 1 week to schedule 30 minute phone interview. About half of conversation was hiring director telling me about Frankel group, then asked me to walk through resume/tell me about you. Why consulting?

    I thought interview went well. Rejected 2 weeks after call...I was surprised to not advance.

    Interview Questions

    • Mini-case (~5 min, you are told you will not be given enough information to give a detailed answer. Just want to see "initial brainstorming"). Question was: you are hired to estimate the revenue that will be generated by a drug that has just been approved.   Answer Question
