I worked at Quintiles full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Men, and most of the management were great to work with.

Cons

Administrative Personnel, and HR were difficult and it's like a 'click'. If you are not with the "in crowd", good luck! Everyone admitted that getting hired is practically impossible unless you know someone. Umm... what is the point of a recruiter?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get to know what a work/life balance means.

    Pros

    Completely integrated with the hiring company...don't feel like a contract rep.
    Auto reimbursement instead company car.

    Cons

    Contract will end. Then what to do. There are options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try hard to help reps get hired permanently or get another contract.

    I have been working at Quintiles full-time (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.
