Pros

In-depth learning of the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and diagnostic sectors with very, very competent managers. Friendly culture with plenty of opportunity for feedback and growth.

Cons

Inconvenience of Burlington, MA is a considerable drawback for younger employees. Conservative culture doesn't always mesh well with the changing company demographic.

Advice to Management

More opportunities for younger employees to interact with clients would be very beneficial for their development. Projects can also be a bit repetitive at the junior level.

    Pros

    Putnam Associates is a top strategy consulting firm with a great work/life balance - analysts and associates can expect less than 25% travel - this is great when compared to the sometimes 75% or more travel of lager consulting firms... another positive is the Fortune 500 clients and diverse case work in the pharma, biotech, and medical devices space. The industry is constantly in flux, interesting, and new news is always available to influence decision makers and large corporations. Putnam does a great job of fusing business talent and economic know how with years of experience in health care and science and passes this on to employees.

    Cons

    In the suburbs rather than downtown in the city of Boston

    Advice to Management

    Continue keeping junior members of staff aware of their current strengths and wakenesses, prospects for promotion, and update them on their status in a transparent way, to keep employees' value of their job at the highest level.

    I have been working at Putnam Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team members create an environment for new employees that fosters extremely fast learning. Structured check-ins and feedback throughout the duration of a case. Great company culture.

    Cons

    Long hours, though upper management tracks and shares firm time sheet data in a transparent way.
