“During the final year of my undergraduate, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in management consulting as my first venture into the business world. In exploring various opportunities, I found that there was a common theme in the companies that intrigued me the most – challenging, high-impact team-oriented work. Of all the industries I considered, healthcare stood out because it humbled me that I could make a potential difference in the lives of people who had the greatest need, and so Xelay’s commitment to making a significant step-change in people’s lives really spoke to me. It was apparent that this was an environment where I would stretch and grow beyond my own expectations, and work as not an individual, but as a team. In my experience at Xelay, I have been able to engage key leaders in the scientific community, develop and present impactful value-driven presentation to C-level executives, and lead a team of motivated individuals to work together to exceed expectations. I truly value the unlimited growth opportunities and new experiences that I get from being here at Xelay.” Alice Wang, Senior Associate, Consulting
