    I have been working at Quintiles full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good office culture, managers encourage taking time off and work-life balance, coworkers are friendly and helpful, occasional extra hours to meet deadlines (which is inevitable in any industry), but frequent praise and recognition given by management for hard work. Ability to work with many different types of people and studies. Challenging and interesting work. Training available to increase knowledge or prepare for management positions. Quintiles encourages employees to focus on health, nutrition and physical fitness and offers many perks related to those areas. Opportunity to interact with people from all over the world.

    Cons

    If hired as a contract employee, you have no guarantee of being offered permanent, full-time position. Must work about a year before you have the chance to be transitioned. During that time, you do not have any benefits (unless you pay out of pocket).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue giving encouragement to employees and teams throughout each month, quarter and year. Continue providing recognition to individuals for outstanding work or special achievements. Knowing that management is supportive and communicative is a big boost when deadlines are approaching. Continue offering perks associated with healthy living.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    Not the most transparent hiring process. I was inteviewed by an Associate Director who was working from home, but was also babysitting his daughter, he had to excuse himself more than twice to discipline his daughter and when he came back he could not remember where we had left off, and started a new question, he did it over and over again, not a single technical question later. I was told that they had moved on with another candidate. I felt violated and smeared. The guy was not listening to anything I was saying. I have more years of experience than required
