Guidehouse Senior Consultant - Market Access, Reimbursement & Pricing - Pharma in Boston, Massachusetts


Guidehouse is a leading management consulting firm serving the public and commercial markets. We guide our clients forward towards new futures that build trust in society and your professional skills along the journey. Join us at Guidehouse.


Senior Consultants are responsible both for contributing to project execution and for supporting initiatives designed to promote company values and interconnectedness. Senior Consultants work closely with senior project staff to develop high-quality content for client-facing and internal deliverables. Senior Consultants are expected to work on 1-3 concurrent projects and to have regular interactions with clients. As part of the US Market Access/Reimbursement team, you will work on creating and implementing US payer and access strategies for pharmaceutical clients. This primarily involves working with senior staff to execute projects and completing research and development of client deliverables.

Common project types include:

  • Assessing coverage landscapes and payer management across priority channels

  • Analyzing analog product environments and competitive landscapes via secondary research

  • Building payer and provider value propositions and conducting targeted message testing

  • Conducting qualitative research with payers and providers to highlight potential barriers to access and inform mitigation and engagement strategies

  • Developing pricing and reimbursement strategies for new product launches, including willingness to pay studies and provider economics research

  • Assessing coding and payment analyses across varied payer channels

  • Conducting market sizing, segmentation, and penetration analyses across various data sets

  • Engaging executive level audience to deliver actionable insights and recommendations

Specific responsibilities include, but are not limited to: conducting secondary research to fully understand background and contextual information needed to support project design and execution; analyzing information (scientific, clinical, and financial) to discern the business implications of new technologies and emerging trends; conducting primary research interviews with payers, clinicians/thought leaders, and executives in relevant fields to answer outstanding strategic questions; and preparing and presenting written reports to Guidehouse management and clients. Travel is project-dependent, but initially averages less than 20 percent.

Guidehouse encourages career development and hiring for the long term. Senior Consultants follow a clearly defined career path focused on understanding and deepening their knowledge of healthcare and the practice of consulting. As Senior Consultants hone their understanding of the industry and demonstrate expanded experience, skills, contributions across work streams, and professional expertise, they can progress to the position of Managing Consultant.

  • Self-starter with an ability to both (1) embrace collaborative approaches whilst also working independently (with oversight from management), and (2) take initiative in pursuing and understanding industry specific knowledge with a willingness to inquire about areas of uncertainty.

  • Demonstrated attention to detail and possession of strong written and verbal communication skills.

  • Proficient with standard Microsoft Office suite applications, including Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook

  • Must be willing and able to travel to client sites across the US, up to 20% of the time.
