    The people are great: personable, skilled and passionate about doing great work.

    Cons

    The client base is I've experienced is not worth the talent and expertise of the staff.The clients I've worked with have no money, want everything in unreasonable time frames and are constantly threatening to find another agency to do the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put all your eggs into one basket-find the type of clients who appreciate, understand and want you to do work for them.

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

    Pros

    Worked with a group of interns on a project for the company. Very chill work environment, the projects were fun and our manager was constantly providing encouragement and support to us interns.

    Cons

    Direction of what we were supposed to be doing sometimes was not clear. Other than that, it was really a pleasure to work at inVentiv.

    Pros

    The company has a lot of growth and potential to move up. There is also work that needs to be done and they don't over staff.

    Cons

    It's a contract based business so you have to keep your fingers crossed that the business stays. The business doesn't spend money on keeping the units updated.

    I worked at inVentiv Health

    Pros

    Hiring process was smooth and training was complete and very well organized.
    My immediate manager was top notch as well as the upper management team. Benefits were mostly very good. I loved working here and wish there was another contract for me to get on.

    Cons

    The only downside is the health insurance plan (UHC partnered with an HSA) and with a large deductible. Personally, I do not like having the HSA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer an non HSA option with a much smaller deductible, even at a higher cost.
