    Former Employee - Associate Director in Research Triangle Park, NC

    I worked at Quintiles full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Best Homebased network with good IT support
    Flexible work environment with good Family-Life Balance
    Great Line Managers
    Good equipment provided and refreshed

    Cons

    Good Senior Mgt is Lacking
    Pay is not Competitive with other Top 3 CROs
    Bonus the past couple of years is low or non-existent
    Too many new systems rolled out without proper pilot-testing like they used to
    Not enough F2F meetings. There used to be many more.
    Not enough company sponsored events unless you are at HQ office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop getting rid of your Top Talent. You're being pennywise pound foolish by letting go your top experienced people and hiring in people with less experience. Have a better bridging policy. Federal Government bridges employees at any time when they return to their position. 1 year isn't good. It would seem like you want people to come back with a wealth of industry or competitors experience.
