Pros

Good vacation is you're an Assoc. Director or above. Doing some interesting work.

Cons

Senior management has completely lost touch with employees. While claiming double digit growth in profits, raises are practically non-existent (~2% if you're lucky) and the employee contribution for health insurance went up from 10% to 35%, and they blamed the ACA while hiding the cost burden shifting. Management is also stuck in the 1990's with bell-curve forced distribution ratings, and beginning to talk about "the new normal". Pretty much all non-mandated training is slashed, no advancement opportunities for most IT positions. As soon as they eliminated the matrixed organization, the opportunities for people to actually advance in their career were eliminated. Now it's only about delivery. And to top it off, at least in the main headquarters, they're going to bench-style seating with less square footage for a cubette than is required for a veal pen. Nothing says "Quintiles cares" about its employees like pitiful raises, cutting benefits while shifting more cost to the employee, cutting training and career progression, and then moving you into a rabbit hutch of a desk.

Advice to Management

Invest in your employees. Pay attention to the falling rankings in best places to work and the employee engagement survey. The constant focus on only delivery while eliminating your change management specialists is resulting in broken systems, quality challenges and low morale. Surprise. A re-org every year that breaks up functioning teams and distributes them across dysfunctional teams just makes all teams dysfunctional.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits including reimbursement for personal computer purchases. Worldwide presence and a wide variety of opportunities. Good working conditions.

    Cons

    As a large global company, Quintiles maintain a massive corporate bureaucracy that at times seems self-serving in that certain business practices do not seem to add value for its customers. Too many VPs - top heavy. They also love meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate upper management with an objective mindset to streamline operations.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good line managers. Good job prospects. Job descriptions are well defined and there is plenty of support for whatever task you are performing

    Cons

    Facilities in Berrington building are embarrassing. Work is being piled onto employees since the company went public again. Work-life balance is not good currently though it used to be great
