You’ll work with our Pharmaceutical and Medical Products team in Waltham. Pharmaceutical and Medical Products is part of McKinsey Solutions and McKinsey’s New Ventures.
McKinsey’s New Ventures in the pharmaceutical and medical device (PMP) industries anchor around a portfolio of advanced analytics offerings that blend objective third-party data, client context, and McKinsey intellectual property. The PMP Analytics team builds and operates tools that support senior executives in pharma and device manufacturers, for whom evidence-based decision-making and competitive intelligence are paramount. In close partnership with McKinsey’s traditional client service teams (CSTs), the PMP Analytics organization works directly with clients across the core functions of Research & Development (R&D); Operations; Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR); Brand and Product Management; and Commercial Operations to build and scale analytical approaches to addressing their most persistent priorities. The offerings are informed both by McKinsey’s longstanding client relationships and deep experience in the most successful PMP players, as well as by the data science, product development, and next-generation research methods of newer partners and senior leaders.
New Ventures is a recently formed part of McKinsey focused on fostering innovations driven by analytics, design thinking, mobile, social and other technologies and integrating them into our client work. It is a foundation for—and expands our investment in—our entrepreneurial culture.
As one of the fastest-growing parts of our firm, New Ventures has more than 1,000 dedicated professionals (including more than 800 analysts and data scientists) and we’re hiring more mathematicians, data scientists, designers, software engineers, product managers, client development managers and general managers.
McKinsey Solutions is a core part of New Ventures and offers practical tools that help people at all levels of an organization generate insights they need to address both strategic and day-to-day decisions. These solutions complement McKinsey's traditional client service and are delivered in many ways, including subscriptions, workshops, training programs and project-based engagements. We work closely with clients to embed our tools, analytics and expertise, and provide on-going support to help them build the capabilities they need to revolutionize how decisions are made.

The Analyst / Senior Analyst leverages proprietary and third-party tools (analytical, sectoral, or functional) to perform primary research and analytics to solve client needs. Identifies and communicates insights and implications of their work to team leadership; develops business recommendations for client impact. Serves as effective “first-line problem-solver” to address any roadblocks or barriers to implementing analytics tools. Partners with McKinsey colleagues to understand client and industry context, and to tailor deliverables and implications of his/her work for the specific client setting. Synthesizes core findings for client teams, and coaches clients through implementation
The Analyst / Senior Analyst performs required analyses with highest rigor and follow-through. Learns additional required capabilities relevant to the tools or subject matter at hand.
