    I have been working at inVentiv Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is an amazing company! They actually care about their employees, have a realistic work life balance but take the job seriously and professionally. They do expect result,s which they should. The training was good, they give the necessary equipment to do the job, and potential new opportunities in the future. Working on contract is never a guarantee but what job is these days. They work hard to keep sales results increasing and the best they can be which is needed. They also continue to work toward gaining new contracts.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the attitude and approach you currently have. You are great!

    I have been working at inVentiv Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have been able to get involved in many aspects of Recruiting and have learned so much. There is opportunity to participate in various trainings to better myself and the organization as a whole. There is also a strong sense of teamwork where we all help each other out.

    Cons

    Due to the rapid growth of the organization, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the excessive workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open communication is critical. Always make sure the work can be done in the timeline provided.

    Continue to inform and enlighten current employees (town meetings are terrific and motivating). Continue to hold events that are fun and show appreciation.

    I have been working at inVentiv Health as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Very comfortable enviroment. People are friendly. Depending on which client you are assinged to the workload seems fair enough to keep the clock ticking until you leave.

    Cons

    Been contracted as temp for over six months and have learned three programs, meanwhile people who are here permanent only perform on one program and do the bare minimum and receive fulltime benifits. Salaries are below national average. Even if offered a permanent position and receive benifits I fear that I would still break even with my bills at the end of the day, and living in NJ salary is a huge factor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer livable wages. NJ is an exspensive state. All work and no play demoralizesemployee moral.

    Pros

    Each role and employee does have the ability to make a difference. Lots of challenges and opportunities to contribute.

    Cons

    Leadership is not working as a team with lots of conflicting priorities. Leaders have real credibility issue with employee population. Employees do not trust the leaders running the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to rebuild Trust with your employees. Complete imbalance with the Employee/Employer relationship.
