At Brandkarma, we are creative. We are calculating. And what we find cool are the drugs, biologics, devices, diagnostics, etc. that change the way we care for peoples’ health. Pharma isn’t for everyone, but it’s what we love! Here is why:

I like working in pharma because…

it requires you to use both sides of the brain, which has its own fair share of challenges. I’m also attracted to the overly competitive market – the people are smart and the products are smart; they keep you on your feet.
Ashley Smith, Business Development Specialist

…it is rooted in facts and figures (i.e., truth), yet we can create campaigns that are more captivating than something completely fabricated just to make sales.
Jami Crabtree, Senior Account Executive

…this industry is always evolving and changing and that is both exciting and challenging.
Allison Magrogan, Human Resources Manager

…I get to find the person that uses their talent to create the ad that grabs the attention of the doctor, who prescribes the medication to the patient and improves their life in a way that they otherwise would not have known was possible.
Ashley Lundquist, Recruiter
