    Pros

    Excellent benefits, above-average salaries. There is opportunity for internal movement and advancement, which is a plus.

    Cons

    Has become very "corporate" - lost its "family feel". Emphasis is on bottom line, not its people.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of engaging employees and making them feel valued

    Pros

    Like my manager. Like my team.

    Cons

    Losing people left and right. Work life balance is no longer a concern. Will not pay to keep good employees.

    Advice to Management

    A little higher pay or little perks and benefits go a LONG way in keeping employees happy. In the long run, it doesn't cost you that much money. Definitely not as much as constantly replacing people. This company was good, but things are going downhill fast.

    Pros

    Quintiles/Janssen Pharmaceuticals: contract employment, Both great companies to work for. Best contract company and best Client to work for.

    Cons

    Contract work is never secure because the contract ends and you are searching for a job because it is temporary employment.

    Advice to Management

    Quintiles needs to have other opportunities available to retain good talent.
