Excellent transition to consulting with diverse experiences

4.8 of 5 stars

Entry-level in Health Care and/or Pharmaceuticals | Boston, MA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Boston location with excellent ambitious colleagues who will drive you to be your best!

Downers

Hours can sometimes be long (but not unusual in this field)

Comments

Work-life balance is good, partners care about employees reflected in policies to institute profit sharing, comp day policies, move to swanky new office and design of office. You will learn a heck of a lot on the job in just months after joining. Responsibility is given at all levels and once you can demonstrate ability to perform, mobility upwards is good.

Putnam provides an extremely engaging and educational experience for its employees every single day

It's not necessary to have a background in life sciences, but it is important to be genuinely interested in healthcare.

Putnam is filled with intellectually curious people from a diverse array of academic backgrounds who are all interested in helping to support clients from the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.

Downers

As with any strategy consulting job, the hours can be long and a bit unpredictable.

Experienced in Health Care and/or Pharmaceuticals | Boston, MA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Interesting cases, great colleagues, opportunity for growth

Downers

Occasional crunches, pace of projects

Comments

Expectations around here are high - for analytical horsepower, for learning curves, for output, for thoroughness, for follow-through, and for rolling-with-the punches (e.g., when a client has a clinical setback and a case needs to shift directions and/or gears). People who are unhappy here generally seem to dislike the constant learning requirements (new methodologies, new therapeutic areas, new markets) and/or intense rigor (getting very deep on sometimes fairly technical clinical content), but these are the things that keep the place dynamic and attract the top-tier clients.

Insight. Clarity. Strategy.

Unpredictable hours, limited geographic opportunities, formal training

Comments

If you're looking for a close-knit firm on the rise that will challenge you professionally, Putnam is the place for you.
