    The Legal Staff was wonderful to work with during my 2L summer.

    I worked at Quintiles as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Insight into the world of an In-House counsel. A forward looking company with the resources to focus on the smart and not just the cheap.

    Cons

    As they aren't hiring recent grads, the internship was not a recruiting exercise and therefore the pay for summer internships was not competitive.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Bonuses have been strong the last several years. Company seems to be in a sweet-spot in the industry as we have no shortage of customers & contracts.

    Cons

    IT is micro-managed, e.g. travel approval only from VP (domestic) or CIO (int'l). Budgets are a joke. Money flows freely (wastefully even) in some areas and sparsely in others that really need it. Then when we're over budget in Q3 of each year (no surprise) all departments tighten up to make up the slack. Management is top-heavy. (How many Directors and Senior Directors and Vice Presidents does one IT shop really need?) Employees are expected to work long hours. Jobs are being shifted to India. Recognition is doled out sporadically and un-uniformly. Great work in some areas is completely overlooked because our CIO doesn't care about those areas while mediocre work (at best) is praised in other areas because the CIO promised version.next of some development project (despite the fact that the promised feature list has shrunk and dwindled simply to meet arbitrary timelines).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees to make decisions for themselves, or get better employees. Don't be a bottleneck to success. Have a more holistic vision of IT on the whole (instead of tunnel vision focusing on your pet projects). Take care of your employees.
