Given the size of the firm, our entrepreneurial culture, and flat organizational structure, associates can expect to interact with firm leaders frequently. We care about performance and results more than titles, and we keep hierarchy to a minimum. Based on experience and performance on casework, associates have the opportunity to advance rapidly.
The application period for the associate consultant role is currently closed.
A Day at Clarion
- Shelton Cochran
After lunch, I head back to my desk to continue work on my project. I put together a few slides with charts to display the data I analyzed this morning. Next I think of a brief conclusion that can be drawn from the data. I find this part of data analysis the most rewarding – finding a meaningful insight and displaying it in an informative way.
After getting back from coffee, I stop by a principal’s office, and we chat briefly about the treatment paradigm for a cancer type that I need to understand for the branded portfolio optimization project. I then head back into a conference room for a team call with the client. We are speaking with the brand manager for one of the products in the portfolio that we are working with. Our manager leads the discussion, trying to gain a historical perspective on the level of marketing investment that the brand had received. The rest of us take notes, occasionally jumping in with specific questions we had prepared earlier.
It’s the end of the day and people start pairing up to take Ubers to one of the partner’s houses. His family is hosting a party to welcome the new hires, featuring homemade chili and ice cream cake. The night ends with socializing over drinks and roasting s’mores over an outdoor fire.
What We’re Looking For
Clarion seeks intellectually curious, highly analytical, team-oriented contributors. We love rolling up our sleeves and helping life sciences companies address their most important strategic challenges.
Our associates demonstrate an ability to think logically, solve problems creatively, and communicate complex ideas effectively. Mostly, we want passionate, smart, hard-working people who embrace the thrill of daunting questions.
