    Pros

    1. Flexible timings and Work from home options. 2. No real work pressure. 3. Friendly ambiance with decent work culture. 4. This is the place you want to be, only after you have seen the world.

    Cons

    1. Quintiles is not a paymaster. 2. No Business travel opportunities and no horizontal growth as well. 3. Not an ideal place to be if you have just started your career or if you are a enthusiastic mid level professional aspiring to move up the ladder and get a global exposure of the business.

    Advice to Management

    "We cannot make everybody happy" theory will not work always. Compensation to the deserving should be given. Individuals with talent should be given opportunity to move up the ladder.

    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

    Extremmely good work life balance and Nice environment to work. No strees of work.

    Cons

    Work doesn't really helpful for individual growth (depends on project). Exposure is very less. Salary is not exciting and growth is very slow.

    Advice to Management

    They should also think about the individual growth for their employees. Not satisfied with the management stragegies.
