    I have been working at Quanticate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Senior staff members recognised as thought leaders in their fields
    Highly respected by clients for quality of outputs and great customer service
    Innovative workplace where new service offerings are continually developed
    Opportunity to work with high profile companies on interesting and technically challenging projects
    Expanding client and project base presents a very positive outlook for 2014 and beyond
    Plenty of opportunity for advancement - talent is recognised and developed
    Friendly professional environment

    Cons

    Some of the cons mentioned by others are being dealt with, for example central points in offices for staff feedback and suggestions, to aid information sharing and help bring good ideas to the fore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue attracting the top biometrics talent to the teams in order to support the ongoing projects, which will help with 2014 expansion plans.

    Treat employees like adults. Communicate what's happening in the company, atleast "try" and reduce the turn over rate. Compete with other companies, invest in employees

    I have been working at Quanticate full-time

    Pros

    This is an up and coming company. It has a nice office atmosphere with friendly people. The company seems to be expanding and growing. Any internal issues are usually resolved fairly quickly

    Cons

    Small offices with office politics. Little or no pay rise/bonus structure. Seems to be lack of communication between departments and lots of finger pointing. Reliant on employees with no back up if they leave.

    I have been working at Quanticate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great reputation
    Ability to work with worlds largest pharmaceutical companies
    Focus on developing employees
    New academies to enhance training and career opportunities
    Provides a flexible and exciting working environment
    Listens and acts upon employee and customer suggestions

    Cons

    As with most growing companies, there are times where workload can be high - but this is a sign of a successful and healthy company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on recruitment and gaining the best talent. The strategy to become a global leader is fast becoming a reality which is great in terms of future opportunities to grow - Maybe just make it a bit clearer what that growth in terms careers could look like.

    I have been working at Quanticate full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Always has been a nice place to work
    Now seeing a much clearer direction and strategy
    Much better communication from management - recent blogs have helped make strategy clear
    Good career opportunities and progression
    Seeing lots of growth and wins - which makes the future look bright
    Culture and values are now much clearer to me

    Cons

    Historically been unclear in terms of company direction and strategy but improving significantly
    Training opportunities could be better to help enhance my skills
    Operational strategy not so clearly communicated
    Could always increase salaries & bonuses!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really impressed by the way the company has changed in recent years - market perception, messaging and strategy. There is a feeling in the company that Quanticate is a global leader in its field, which was not felt before. The Intranet could be improved though to make communication even better.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Quanticate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible approach
    One of the largest CRO's in its field (data)
    Innovative approaches to create solutions
    Improved leadership communication
    Experienced team that are willing to help
    Nice environment (generally)
    Improved marketing
    Not as 'political' as other companies - more team orientated
    Really try to hard to be the best in the industry

    Cons

    Still could improve some employee engagement technologies
    Bit top heavy in terms of experienced individuals
    Quanticate brand still not as well known as it could be
    Career growth pathways could be clearer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Using technology to improve communication and provide better visibility for things like recognition would really help turn Quanticate into an 'employee of choice' that I know that they want to be seen as.

    I have been working at Quanticate

    Pros

    Fantastic atmosphere, positive energy, wonderful people, a very stimulating experience, lots of diversity to learn from, lots of team work, support and experience sharing.
    A chance to work independently and grow experience.

    Cons

    Little support from the company to improve working conditions. Often fail to retain best talent. Focus on the cheapest work force (students, post-grads), which helps maintain the fresh and lively atmosphere, but doesn't promote and reward them enough to make them stay long-term.

    Friendly and professional environment, innovative and supportive environment

    I have been working at Quanticate

    Pros

    Everyone is encouraged to be the best they can be, but at the same time given the opportunity to develop to a level where they can be the best they can be. Supportive environment, with a family feel - colleagues wherever they are based across the globe feel like they are working together towards the same common goal.

    Cons

    As a medium sized company, there can be limitations in resources and the context is focused on billablility for the company. However not environment where commerciallity overshadows innovation and individual support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good direction demonstrated by senior management, and collaborative environment is encouraged from the top. As with any company, there is a focus on commercial viability in most activity, but the focus on fostering an environment for innovation and individual contribution makes it a great place to work
