    I worked at Quintiles full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company offers excellent career progression, good management team and flexible working conditions. I worked from home in London which is encouraged - very global and forward thinking company.

    Cons

    Matrix org structure, somewhat political. You are expected to work very hard - evening and weekends however your efforts are always rewarded.

    I have been working at Quintiles full-time

    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 They still use outdated management practices and appreciation needs work.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 have been working at Quintiles full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good office culture, managers encourage taking time off and work-life balance, coworkers are friendly and helpful, occasional extra hours to meet deadlines (which is inevitable in any industry), but frequent praise and recognition given by management for hard work. Ability to work with many different types of people and studies. Challenging and interesting work. Training available to increase knowledge or prepare for management positions. Quintiles encourages employees to focus on health, nutrition and physical fitness and offers many perks related to those areas. Opportunity to interact with people from all over the world.

    Cons

    If hired as a contract employee, you have no guarantee of being offered permanent, full-time position. Must work about a year before you have the chance to be transitioned. During that time, you do not have any benefits (unless you pay out of pocket).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue giving encouragement to employees and teams throughout each month, quarter and year. Continue providing recognition to individuals for outstanding work or special achievements. Knowing that management is supportive and communicative is a big boost when deadlines are approaching. Continue offering perks associated with healthy living.
