What our Clients are Saying...
For more than three decades, Marcus & Associates has made a name for itself servicing the most respected companies in the Life Sciences industry. We feel the best way to show our value is to let our clients speak for themselves. Our dedication to customer service is earned by truly listening to our client's needs and delivering the types of candidates required in a timely manner.
Our methodical approach to networking enables us to access, connect with and recruit the best-fit, highest-caliber candidates. Very few competitors can match our years of experience focused entirely on building relationships within Life Sciences to have built a network to provide coverage comparable to ours. Below are just a few client testimonials. Please contact us for references.
"I am happy to offer my strongest recommendation for Rory Faulkner and his firm, Marcus & Associates. Rory and his team have supported us over the past 4+ years on some very challenging searches in the Regulatory Affairs (brands and generics), CMC Reg Affairs, CMC Biologics (upstream, downstream, product development and analytical sciences) divisions, among various other areas where we’ve reached out for their help. They have filled numerous positions from highly skilled and experienced individual contributors to executive management roles in both scientific and management positions. What I really like about Rory and his team is their ability to thoroughly penetrate the market to find the best talent, and their ability to really sell us, our culture and our way of working and ensuring that the candidates they present are a good cultural fit for our teams. Not only have they helped fill these roles but these have been successful hires thanks to Rory’s teams’ thorough prequalification of their candidates. Rory and his team really demonstrate their strong knowledge of the functional areas for which they recruit during their recruitment strategy intake calls, and thus my hiring managers are left feeling confident that they are working with a highly credible, experienced search partner. I often tell my colleagues that Rory is an extension of our Talent Acquisition staff, he knows so much about our company, our benefit offerings, how we operate. He’s terrific, I can’t say enough good things about Rory and his highly capable team. Not only are the Marcus & Associates team of recruiters great, but Rory himself is a top notch professional, someone I highly respect and endorse. We are grateful to Rory for all of his excellent service to us over the years and we know with him as a search partner we will continue to have one of the best firms in the business helping us through our future recruitment challenges."
