    I worked at ClearView Healthcare Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People - Starts and ends with the people. There is no better place to start your career than with a cohort of other recent graduates that are all going through a similar experience. The non-travel model facilitates these relationships, as you can become great friends with co-workers given the time spent together. Training - ClearView's training team invests in each analyst / consultant giving you the toolbox required to succeed on any project. This training continues project to project as you accumulate responsibility. On the first project, you may only present 1 - 2 slides; by project 2 or 3, you are likely presenting an entire section of the document. This growth continues to accelerate throughout your tenure. Work - The project mix at ClearView stands out relative to other life science consulting firms. The focus on strategy gives you exposure across a range of client types (Series A Biotechs to Top 5 Diversified Biopharma) who are all looking at similar problems through very different lenses. On the one hand, small biotechs need help to accelerate specific programs to market as quickly as possible. In contrast, the big pharma clients need to organize their gargantuan pipelines across an entire therapeutic area. In each case, you dive into the MOA of an asset(s), identify the patient population you can treat, evaluate the competitive landscape, and roll-up to strategic or commercial implications, but the nuance of objectives across client types makes each project exciting and a great learning experience. Expectations - The expectations at ClearView are some of the highest in the industry, it sets a bar for every employee of what is required to be great, and you work to eclipse that bar on every project. The result is that demand for ClearView work frequently exceeds supply, but it also teaches every new-hire what is required to be great in the biotech space. In order to be the best, you have to compete with the best, and that's exactly what ClearView is preparing you to do.

    Cons

    Hours - Nobody at the top of their field is working 40 hours a week, and neither is ClearView, but the people in the office make every moment enjoyable. Whether its the open-door policy that allows you to make free conversation with leadership, or the after-work events that allow for friendships to develop, the extra hours in the office show you what it takes to be great, and are spent with some of the greatest people you will ever meet and learn from.

    I have been working at ClearView Healthcare Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Amazing people 2. If you want to be in the life sciences industry, working here would be incredible over McKinsey or other firms because you get real expertise rather than a general toolkit 3. You will learn from the best people who juggle nitty gritty science to big bucks business, and you will be amazed every single day at their genius.

    Cons

    1. Horrible work hours compared to what they pay in terms of base and bonus 2. Need to normalize "weekends off" and at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night 3. Leadership is great at selling projects, but not at managing people; every organization needs good managers to grow. 4. There is no difference skills wise between an analyst and a senior analyst, and arguably no real difference between SA's and consultants. This company needs to promote faster, or pay a greater base salary to analysts.

    I have been working at ClearView Healthcare Partners full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    interesting projects, steep learning curve, smart and motivated people all around, lots of client-facing opportunities comparing to other life science consulting firms

    Cons

    work life balance can be tough in most cases, heavily customer-centric meaning you should be ready to put work priority in front of everything

    I have been working at ClearView Healthcare Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    ClearView is full of bright, young, and energetic individuals who combine life sciences expertise with a shrewd business sense. Working at the firm is an excellent opportunity to engage in a broad set of project types with some of the industry's biggest players. While the firm is experiencing incredible growth, there is also a great focus on mentorship here, and leadership is very supportive of individual professional development.

    Cons

    Work-life balance at ClearView leaves something to be desired. You can expect to work 60+ hour weeks, sometimes for a month or more at a time for a project; plan on keeping social activities to the weekend and being on the call pretty much 24/7 when on such stretches. Additionally, ClearView has a very distinct "style", in terms of the culture, aesthetic, and working philosophy. If you are less than a solid fit, this will likely cause some extra stress in your life.

    I have been working at ClearView Healthcare Partners full-time

    Pros

    There is a strong focus on professional development and maintaining a sort of meritocracy in the workplace. The case work is all focused in the life sciences which makes it an incredible experience for those with scientific backgrounds.

    Cons

    Hours can occasionally be long, but this is a function of the industry.

    I worked at ClearView Healthcare Partners full-time

    Pros

    Smart, driven employees; rapidly growing firm provides fantastic opportunities for career advancement and personal growth; partners and managers maintain a true open-door policy; responsibilities and promotions are given to you when you are ready for them, not when you reach a certain position or tenure; emphasis on work-life balance; firm and employees truly interested in the science underlying projects; great opportunity to learn about the global healthcare and life sciences landscape; overall fairly diverse firm

    Cons

    Inconvenient location (in the Boston suburbs) can make for annoying commutes and limited food/entertainment options, and the office and surrounding area can start to feel claustrophobic; a lot of lip service to the importance of feedback and transparency; unnecessarily strong drinking culture, as though adhering to the tired mantra of "work hard play hard" shared by many consulting firms somehow improves the firm's relevance or performance; homogeneous senior management (where are the women??); projects can be repetitive and limited in scope to biopharmaceutical development; turnover is getting worse
