I have been working at Quintiles full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

IT is innovative and cutting edge. There is a good work-life balance. The organization as whole is customer focused which is good but also difficult to manage.

Cons

Sometimes shortcuts are taken to meet customer demands which impact the final product. Deadlines are sometimes unreasonable in regards to timelines. One issue is that different customers are promised different features or solutions for the same product and sometimes these can contradict each other leading to problems with development or validation of a system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have the sales folks talk to the IT folks about what you can actually promise a customer before just agreeing to everything.

    Pros

    The paycheck that we receive helps us to pay bills. We are able to provide a service to the community providing a pharmaceutical service, it is good to have a job, any job at this point.

    Cons

    Management is just terrible, no work/home balance, they do not provide proper training, management is very unreasonable with their expectations, they are not flexible, very uncaring to their employees, the moral is low and just the limited is being accomplish because of low moral and very high turnover. It provides a bad environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a leader; uplift, train and provide a better work environment for your workers. Without your workers you become a failure and nothing can be accomplish, as a result business suffers

    Former Employee - Summer Legal Intern  in  Durham, NC
    Former Employee - Summer Legal Intern in Durham, NC

    I worked at Quintiles as an intern for less than a 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.
