Transparency from partner and manager level down to associate, San Francisco, high-impact strategy cases, informal training. Dedication to personal growth and development. Compensation and bonus packages. Off site trips/dinners/drinks, etc.

Downers

Hours, sometimes. But it's usually less than 60

Comments

I would really only have positive things to say about the firm. I think it completely sets itself apart as a boutique firm, with almost every benefit of any large firm. We have any exit opportunity you can imagine, including a high rate of employees heading off to top business schools completely paid for by Putnam, as well as opportunities to accelerate your trajectory through the ranks up to the partner level by age 30 or so, if that's your goal. It's a firm where you'll be valued for what you do on day one, and you have a lot of autonomy as well as a strong identity being a first year. Every partner knows me on a first name basis and I've been here for 6 months and work in a different office entirely. It's a special place with high impact work for almost every major player in the pharmaceutical space.

Great platform for individual growth with significant opportunity to help shape firm growth

Colleagues, interesting problems to solve

Crunches, Boston commute

If you want to be a consultant long-term, Putnam is a great platform. If you want to go to B-School, everyone here who follows that path seems to get into multiple top schools. If you want to be a biotech exec, Putnam is a good ramp - you'll gain a behind-the-scenes, sophisticated understanding of multiple companies, therapeutic areas, and functional areas and if you stay through the Consultant role, your first biotech job upon exit will be 2-3 levels higher than that of people who go straight to industry out of school.

Putnam Associates is Unrivaled in Professional Development Opportunities and Firm Culture

I love the people. They motivate me, challenge me, and are some of my closest friends. That is invaluable.

We have amazing client relationships with many of the top firms in the healthcare industry and have some of the most interesting and impactful cases out there. You will always feel like you are not only making a difference for the client, but also making a difference in patients' lives. That is what makes working at Putnam so rewarding.

A deeply interesting and challenging learning experience in the healthcare / pharma industry as a part of an amazing team.

The people, the interesting work, the fast exposure to management styles and your own management responsibilities, and the lack of travel

Downers

Hours (though still very manageable in my opinion), the occasionally formal dress code (only for Setpember - October, then January - March).
