Current Employee - Senior CRA in Bangalore (India)

I have been working at Quintiles full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Very good in training and quality focus. The training programmes are very well designed and noteworthy. The yearly GCP accreditation initiative is a good one and Q is well know to deliver to most of our customers. CRAs are smart and the team work is incredible.

Cons

Poor in staff retention and aligning company needs to staff expectations. Not great in review of staff growth. Very poor pay and compensation. Promotions are lop sided and not properly focussed on identifying the best and most experienced person for the job. The management team is not able to understand which employee really works hard and smart for the company. Need to improve on resourcing as every employee seems to be overburdened. There are too many departments with confusing overlaps.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to identify and promote the best and most experienced staff and not people who are just cunning and show off that they are good when actually they are now.

    Workforce is heavily over-utilized and burnt out!

    I have been working at Quintiles full-time

    Pros

    Name recognition, well-received in the marketplace, truly full service with many opportunities to move around into different functional areas. Prepares you well for a move to another company.

    Cons

    Heavily siloed, absolutely no training, too much trial by fire. Mentors are way too busy to be bothered with providing practical, hands-on training to new hires. Constant crisis mode and always doing damage control with clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resources! Resources! Resources! Line management is notoriously clueless about project specifics and what is really needed. People are way too overworked. Management takes the side of the client, and leaves direct-reports hanging when things hit the fan. Escalation and accountability is half-cocked and always punitive; never constructive. Performance issues/unprofessional behavior is selectively enforced.
