My Job as Inhouse Consultant

My role is to be a thought partner with different business leaders across Merck on consulting projects to support their most pressing business challenges. My goal is development of actionable, strategic solutions for the Life Science and Healthcare businesses of Merck.

My Daily Challenges

Every day I get to contribute to addressing diverse business challenges of a global organization while working in cross-functional, international teams. Working on multiple projects in parallel and the associated steep learning curves is challenging but incredibly exciting.

Why I like to work as Inhouse Consultant

Three main reasons I like to work at IC: 1) Creative project content and diverse teams, 2) Delivery of tangible, implementable output (relative to external consultancy work), 3) Direct participation on the client teams you work with; therefore not uncommon to stay in touch with your clients after the project is over.

What I like most about being an Inhouse Consultant

Having high degree of freedom over the projects that I do, from project scoping to designing the work streams and execution, is what I enjoy the most. Doing all this in collaboration with really smart and fun team members makes the experience at Merck IC even better.

My life before joining the Inhouse Consultancy

I got an undergraduate degree in Biotechnology, following which I worked in Biosimilars R&D in India. I received a PhD in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology from University of Illinois, Chicago (USA). Thereafter I worked at The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) focusing on clients in the Healthcare space which helped me acquire a broader understanding of Healthcare business.

What I like to do in my spare time

I love traveling to new places, hiking in National Parks and doing landscape photography.
