    I have been working at Quintiles full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules for busy working parents, lots of career paths within the walls of the company (easy to switch roles if aren't satisfied in current position), great benefits, good pay - great culture and hard working workforce. Highly intelligent people! Be prepared to feel challenged.

    Cons

    Not a huge fan of the open seating at headquarters, but if you have a good line manager, you get to work from home a few days/week. Highly matrixed organization makes projects take longer due to multiple levels of approval required. A lot of meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While some change is always good, it would be nice to see some more constant at Quintiles. So much movement can cause a bit of uncertainty - which isn't always a bad thing, but it's not always good, either.

    Pros

    great benefits, room for improvement, home based positions

    Cons

    negative year end reviews, upper management not acknowledging lower level employees, no definite career paths, too much politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if there are issues with employees performance, they should be fairly reviewed with the employee during the year instead of waiting for year end reviews

    Pros

    The people are amazing to work with. The work is streamlined. The managers are very attentive to the development of their direct reports

    Cons

    Work life balance is suffering due to the enormous workload. Working 50 hours a week is not unheard of, as is working over the weekend just to keep things current.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improvement to Work Life Balance - perhaps an additional WFH day during the week

    Pros

    Well established company with excellent benefits and the leader of the CRO industry. Many salary positions offer at least partial work from home. Strong team atmosphere and focus on efficiencies.

    Cons

    Avoid the Phase I side of the house. They still use outdated management practices and appreciation needs work. Some slow improvements noted recently.

    I worked at Quintiles

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for. It has very flexible working hours. People are allowed to work from home.

    Cons

    The working load is heavy sometimes. You have to submit the time sheet weekly, which is annoying.
