Why We Work Here

Jennifer Benner
Senior Analyst

It’s awesome getting to work with everyone from clients to recent graduates to KOLs and thought leaders. It’s very rewarding working with such a wide array of people and sharing a mutual understanding of how we view complex problems and solutions. We are also at the cross-section of modeling and real world evidence (RWE). It’s been interesting to watch the interaction between both research areas unfold. The nerd in me loves the fact that I get to use calculus and statistics every day!

I’ve always loved interacting with business intelligence personnel in life sciences, for the simple fact they keep me up–to–date on what is going on in the market. I feel very fortunate because not everyone has the opportunity to speak with pharmaceutical, biotech and med device organizations at this level, so I feel privileged to go out and help solve business questions. It’s also great to be a part of a team like BHE that is so committed to being expertsin the RWE and HEOR space. Even though I’ve only been at BHE for a short time, the quality of people here has made a huge impression on me. It certainly motivates me to come in every day and roll up my sleeves and get to work.

Although my degree is specialized, my role isn’t and I can dip my toes in a lot different projects. These can range from coding data visualizations to creating training slide decks to writing up methodology for an analytics project. I also really like my coworkers. They are all very smart and energized to be here. It’s a very dynamic atmosphere and the work is constantly changing. I’m enjoying learning more about real world data analytics and the various methods necessary to implement large database studies. It’s a great space to be in right now as the technology is constantly changing.
