    I worked at inVentiv Health as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    inVentiv Health is a fantastic company! I was fortunate enough to be on a 6 month contract in the Recruitment Department. The people, the culture, and the work have been extremely enjoyable. It was an absolute pleasure to work with such a fantastic group of people, and I am sorry to see it end, but I hope to return shortly.

    Cons

    The only challenge I faced was the distance of my commute, but that was by choice, and because I enjoyed coming to work, I did not mind the drive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! I have been in recruiting for over 15 years, and this is by far one of the best experiences in a company I have ever had.

    I worked at inVentiv Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    decent pay and hours

    Cons

    disconnect between employees and upper management, poorly motivated people are promoted and then are allowed to stay in their positions despite continuous evidence of lack of managerial or people skills. Entire experienced teams with proven metrics are laid off without trying to find them placement within the company.

    I worked at inVentiv Health full-time

    Pros

    I've worked 3 separate times for inVentiv on contracts, and if you are a valuable sales representative with proven success, they will help you find a new position if your position is eliminated. They have several contracts that need representatives with varying degrees of experience.

    Cons

    When a contract ends or you are displaced, you are basically done with no salary, and your benefits end at the end of the month in which you are laid off. Also, if you accrue vacation that you haven't used, they only pay our 30% of the value of the vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be some sort of severance for employees that are displaced until they can either find another contract position, or other employment.

    Constant turnover of senior management and change in direction has really led nowhere and gives employees little hope.

    I have been working at inVentiv Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The overall vision for this company is actually good, it just hasn't executed that vision very well. Senior management doesn't seem to understand the services component of the industry.

    Cons

    Strategic decisions are very short term focused and totally driven by financials. Many employees feel that the only thing leadership cares about is getting their money back out. Lots of great talent is walking out the door. Effort to bring in expensive new leaders has not worked well as most have come and gone in very short order.

    Good experience. Territory, pay, bonuses and manager depends on how contract is set up.

    Pros

    Management made sure we were successfully integrated into company that had contract with inVentiv. Quick hiring decisions. Excellent internal recruiting staff. Excellent training.

    Benefits and payments depend on how contract is set up. Sometimes not completely clear from the beginning (ie. call minumums in order to qualify for bonuses).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent training allowed me to be successful in the field. Thank you.
