    I have been working at inVentiv Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I started right out of college in our HR department then moved over to Recruiting after 1.5 years. I was them promoted within 1.5 years to my current role. Very supportive and caring co-workers and managers, constant training/development opportunities, and good benefits (Paid time off, 401k & matching plan, paid holidays, flexible work scheduling when necessary).

    Cons

    the company is still restructuring as a whole to align some of the divisions and departments within the divisions so there is some disconnect in processes and knowledge between the divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have departments sit together to agree upon contract/client terms so that the outcome can be favorable for everyone.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are comparable to many other companies with regard to health insurance, vacation and 401K plans. Located convenient to major roads.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of employee turnover lately and the atmosphere is not very positive amongst employees. It has also been hard to get vacation approved even when requested six months ahead. Workload is at a constant high which is quite stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees like you care about their contributions and that they are a valuable asset to the company. Many feel like they are of no real value and can easily be replaced.

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

    Pros

    I am new to the company in the last year and have been so impressed with it so far. From working with my recruiter, the managers, and HR, they have all been wonderful. I feel like this is the direction that the industry is going, so I am thrilled to be here. I know that, if this project ends, I can be considered for other ones.

    Cons

    I don't have any complaints so far, but am just worried abut job stability like everyone else. I feel like inventiv has a lot going on right now, so that makes me feel more secure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I haven't met the upper management, but like what I have heard thus afar.

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

    Pros

    Consistant growth, always busy which means great job security. inVentiv offers many types of services to clients so there are a variety of ways for career growth and opportunities. The employees at inVentiv are very supportive, understand teamwork, are very dedicated. Everyone works hard and prides themselves on getting results....refreshing to see people so dedicated. Upper management also values work/life balance. I've never been denied a day off....been understanding with sick kids and other life issues.

    Cons

    Lack of efficient marketing and branding...hard for people to understand what we do and how we do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More branding/marketing materials....simple messages of who we are and what we do.
