    Pros

    It is a great way to get your foot in the door. If you have a decent contract, there is potential to roll into permanent positions.

    Cons

    You can get stuck in a contract position-- meaning that real companies will not hire you. They look at you like you are sub-human & a joke-- even though you are doing the exact same thing as their reps!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a disconnect regarding the goals of the innovex managers and the project managers. The innovex managers will step in and RUIN projects-- they have NO sales experience!!

    Former Employee - Business Development Director in Parsippany, NJ

    I worked at Innovex

    Pros

    very stable, well funded
    extremely diverse workforce
    deep client list and diversity of therapeutic area experience
    very friendly and helpful staff
    plentiful resources and support via parent company (Quintiles)

    Cons

    large company bureaucracy
    not as flexible as smaller companies
    many layers of corporate policies that stifle innovation
    slow to react to market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership at Innovex needs to commit themselves to a single strategic direction and stick to it for long enough to asses whether or not it worked. In general, the organization needs to do more to be a trend setter and not a follower.

    Pros

    Great Pay and benefits. If you are looking to break into pharma, this is a great opportunity.

    Cons

    This company is great, while it last. Please keep in mind that it is a contract sales organization and if the company who signs the contract wants to end it. Your time with them is over. Innovex does not give preferential treatment to current employees for future contracts. RUN

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little Loyalty would go a long way

    OK pay - terrible management

    Former Employee - Contract Sales Representative

    I worked at Innovex

    Pros

    The company pays pretty well compared to other companies. Benefit package is fair. The company is usually pretty flexible when it comes to paid time-off and work life balance.

    Cons

    Management is run by the good ol' boys club. My manager was recruited because he was a friend of a friend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better and more qualified managers. Look into the organization and promote. You have great talented leaders among you. You will lose them soon if you do not start promoting. Unfortunately it is then you well have to face them as your competitiors.

    I have been working at Innovex

    Pros

    Great company culture
    Plenty of training opportunities for those who want them
    Give everybody a go, even new reps.
    Possibility for quick career progression (if positions arise)

    Cons

    Far too much unnecessary paper work
    Average pay with far lower incentives than big pharma
    Terrible work/life balance
    Limited career scope due to lack of regular job opportunities and limited company size

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really think about what you're getting your reps to do before implementing new ideas and protocols. There's so much work that is a complete and utter waste of time for the company, the client and the employee, yet reps are forced to do it.
    Not to mention that reps in big pharma do far less work for better pay and far more product related company support.
