For advanced degree holders in the life sciences, Health Advances offers an opportunity to learn and grow in a supportive (if fast-paced) environment. Your professional development will be tailored to your abilities and aptitude for consulting, and progression is not limited by having a PhD (several senior-level consulting staff hold PhDs).

Interesting and bright people.


Comments

Prior to the interview candidates should have clear answers to the questions:

Why consulting?

Why healthcare?

Why Health Advances?



They also need to have a minimum amount of understanding of the healthcare space to demonstrate interest beyond the resume. Candidates should know what a medical device versus biotech company does. Know what the difference between a biologic and small molecule is. Know who the FDA is, what they do, and how they impact the business of healthcare.

Comments

Be prepared for a fast-paced environment. If you like that, you will thrive. If you have other commitments such as to family or a recreational group, they will likely suffer at times. It is much easier to adapt to balancing demands at home and work than come in to consulting with significant outside demands.

The travel demands are low for the consulting industry. There is not a mentality of "camping out" at client sites. We meet with clients to understand their needs and then we return to our offices to efficiently perform the research and analysis. We update clients via emails and phone calls and infrequent in-person meetings.


Comments

Do your research on the firm so you can articulate your perceptions of how it compares to other healthcare consulting firms.

Exclusive focus on the healthcare industry, very experienced senior partners that are available to everyone in the company, mentorship, early responsibility, and lots of opportunities for client interaction.


Downers

Dual-staffing model can mean there are some extremely busy periods; only 2 of the 3 weeks of vacation are at our discretion to schedule; compensation is fair but not exceptional.


Comments

If you are seriously considering Health Advances, think hard about recruiting for an internship - it's the best way to secure an offer. We only do healthcare, so it's important to want that - and to demonstrate from experiences/actions that it's something you're interested in.
