Firsthand Findings

New to our rankings this year, Artisan is a firm that we will be watching with interest as it continues to build on its already strong reputation in the competitive pharma consulting space. Already, it is obvious that the firm is committed taking its employees with it as it grows; insiders speak highly of both training and development opportunities, and are particularly effusive about the speed of career (and salary) progression at the company.

Remarkably, that speed doesn’t seem to be tied to a particularly punishing work schedule—a factor that is certainly helped by the low-travel model on offer at Artisan. For those seeking the boutique experience in a pharma/healthcare-specialist firm, this may be one to add to your list. Just make sure you don’t take too lon...

Employee Reviews


  • “All voices are heard when making decisions about the trajectory of the company. Not only do we have a collaborative work style on our client engagements, but Artisan encourages collaboration from every level when making business decisions. I believe that is the number one reason why we've been successful as a firm.”
  • “Artisan's culture is unbelievable. Everyone is extremely smart and driven, but even more importantly everyone is extremely nice and supportive. There is no competitiveness between coworkers.”
  • “Excellent growth opportunities and early responsibility, competitive compensation, and excellent culture. Hours can be unpredictable but there is more schedule/hours control as you rise up the firm. Manager level is currently understaffed but active efforts are being made (and progress has been seen with the lateral hiring of one manager).”
  • “Unlike a lot of other healthcare consulting firms, we have a positive, non-competitive, light atmosphere and culture that makes it fun to work here. I have heard pretty bad things about the culture at other firms with only a certain amount of people getting promoted and that causing competition to work stupidly long hours and not be close friends with people at work.”
  • “This is the perfect place to start after college. We are young and growing, and members of leadership care about each employee in ways that I have not seen at other companies.”
  • “We have a multi-project staffing model that allows associates to work on 3-5 projects at a time. This is great for both accelerating growth - you are doing 3-5 projects or more during the time that counterparts are doing one, and allowing for a diversity of opportunity - if one project is boring, you aren't stuck working on only that project and have other projects that can add excitement and interest in your daily routine.”

Getting Hired Here


  • “At our company being qualified to do the technical work is the baseline. After that, we truly focus on people who are team players, engaged, and value our culture. Upholding culture is always at the top of mind, and many highly qualified candidates have been turned away for exhibiting competitive and selfish behaviors during interviews.”
  • “Because we're a smaller firm, we are much more selective on the offers we give out, and ‘fit’ is extremely important. Even if a candidate performs exceptionally well on cases and is well qualified, if we see any red flags like too competitive with peers, can't work in teams, not respectful to managers, etc., that candidate would not receive an offer.”
  • “Candidates who have shown an interest in both business and healthcare. Smart, driven, and personable people who can work well with others and are not competitive with coworkers.”
  • “The ideal candidate would be someone with a work background in the pharmaceutical/healthcare industry who has a strong science and business background from undergraduate/PhD/MBA degrees.”
  • “Very quick turnaround to candidates. We typically seek smart, driven candidates who actively seek out opportunities in healthcare and more specifically biopharma. Ability to find the right level of intersection between science and business is key.”
  • “We typically do a first-round interview that involves a short case and fit portion. This first-round either takes place at an undergraduate campus or over the phone. Then we invite candidates into our office to interview with a wide range of employees across levels. This final round interview consists of a few case interviews as well as some general discussion around the applicants' resumes.”
