    I worked at Quintiles as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Though I don't have much input in regards to compensation and benefits, my supervisors were always available and if not, there was always another attorney/legal staff member around that could assist me with my projects.

    Cons

    There wasn't much room to advance within the Legal Department but I gained good experience here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no complaints with Management and they were mostly helpful during my internship.

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

    Pros

    Learning opportunities due to increasing workload - resume builder.
    Process changes are good to know and have experience with but it's increasingly obvious it is ONLY about the bottom line.
    Big company - name recognition.

    Cons

    Increasing workload prevents healthy work-life balance and low morale is spreading.
    Minimal merit increases per year - mgmt continually cites that Quintiles' salaries are higher than competitors.
    Rating system is changing towards an orientation to lower ratings for everyone - gives the impression that it really doesn't matter how well you do throughout the year.
    Obvious orientation towards outsourcing to lower cost regions - seems to be no concern about losing some great talent in lay-offs.
    Low moral seems to be spreading - people at various levels are stressed and overloaded.
    Seems to be too many managers/levels of mgmt and Senior Mgmt appears to be completely out of touch with what's going on 'on the ground.' Lower-level mgmt is helpful as much as they can be but they have increasing inability to make final decisions at their level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decrease the number of layers of mgmt and empower lower-level managers to make decisions. Quit trying to create initiatives to ensure your continued employment; it's starting to remind me of Congress.
