Working in the Pharma and Healthcare sector
It has been a while! Over the last few months, I have been working on a very particular project, quite similar to a secondment. I was working as a Business Insights Manager for a large Pharma company, under the supervision of a Pharma division director.
It was an enlightening experience and considerably different from the projects I usually worked on during my two years at Roland Berger. I had no specific 'ppt' deliverable to prepare for the end of the project, and no interaction with any Partners or other team members from Roland Berger. I was fully immersed in the 'client' company and was considered as another employee (although a short time contract employee). This experience gave me a glance on what it was like to work in an industry role. I worked in collaboration with many departments (Market Access, Regulatory, Medical Affairs, …) with brilliant people from whom I was able to learn a lot from.
After my three month stint, I had a well-deserved month of holiday. I went to my hometown in Morocco for two weeks and then headed to Bali for another two weeks with my best friends. Returning to work after that was not easy, but I am quite happy to start another Pharma & Healthcare project since it is the industry I would like to focus on from now on.
See you soon,
