    Pros

    Good work / life balance
    Flexible hours
    Convenient location
    Ability to work from home

    Cons

    Layoffs
    Very high turnover
    Ineffective management
    Management does not listen to or respond to employees
    Poor internal communications even within teams
    Lack of direction and focus for the business
    Distrust of Management

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus on employees and listen to their concerns in order for the business to turn around. Layoffs were the wrong move at this time, especially when there is high turnover. When you let talented, hard working people go when and there is such high turn over that requires so many new people to fill their shoes, it only compounds the problem and makes it harder if not impossible to turn around the business. There is now a huge vacuum of knowledgeable people left who know our business and make things work. While there may be some short-term wins, the outlook does not appear bright.

    Pros

    - Some really good and knowledgeable people work here
    - Attempts at improving office culture are nice

    Cons

    - Large amount of turnover since merger
    - Morale is at an all-time low
    - Very little room for growth
    - Everyone is overworked, overwhelmed, and burnt out; some to the point where their health is suffering
    - Product execution leaves a lot to be desired – continued use of outdated software partially to blame
    - A few employees simply don't belong in their current positions; not a good fit

    Advice to Management

    Not sure it will make a difference...they're making big bucks regardless. Overall, upper management needs to "get in the weeds" along with those that struggle to try and make a mediocre company better on a daily basis.

    Pros

    Original Adheris employees and management, Comradary among all teams (prior to management changes), Benefits, office Atmosphere (prior to intro of new CEO)

    Cons

    New management eradicated Long standing, talented, 'original' Adheris employees without so much as a meeting with said employees or taking the time to get to know them, their achievements, strategic insights or competitive 'space' and what the company could do to offer better, 'best in class', viable new products. Little time, resources or attention spent on promising new product development. As a result, a great company with great talent was indiscriminately 'let go' in favor of existing Catalina Health employees- in many cases- wit half the talent of those let go. inVentiv stood by and watched as long-standing Adheris talent/performers were 'picked off' one by one. What was once a great, upbeat environment to work in is now one built on fear and a dog-eat-dog culture.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to get to know company talent (one on one) before making uninformed organizational and personnel changes. Hold all critical departmental units accountable for their contribution (or lack thereof) to new product development, release, and success. Radical changes made quickly without so much as as a meeting or phone call with those impacted by such decisions only lowers dedicated, talented Adheris employees morale, dedication and high employee turnover.

    Pros

    Great Co-workers, great location, Nice office space, work out room downstairs, and full service cafeteria.

    Cons

    Terrible management. They don't care about the employees at all. New managment has destroyed moral. InVentiv Health, parent company, doesn't care about employees either.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at new mangement and although they may be providing what you want, you should care about how that is getting done. The treatment of the employees that have worked hard there for years is just awful. People are your resources and it's sad how they are being overlooked, overworked, bullied, dissrespected, and underappreciated.
