    Pros

    Great coworkers. The best in the world. A real family like atmosphere. Great Benefits, they are better than any other lab I have worked at.

    Cons

    They are closing the facility in Marietta, GA. If they weren't closing the facility, I was planning on retiring with the company.

    Advice to Management

    For the higher ranks of management, they need to think more about there loyal employees that have been there for years. Right now everyone feels like they are expendable.

    I have been working at Quintiles full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Clinical Project Managers, good IT, recently the company changed LMs and it was a great change

    Cons

    Horrible, horrible CTMS, expense reports and other software. Over allocation and long hours, lots of stress

    Hire a different company with good programmers to have CTMS with good website without lots of bugs. Respect monitors, do not over allocate, give them good tools
