    I have been working at inVentiv Health full-time

    Pros

    If you get the right contract and location, the position can be quite enjoyable. Assuming both you and your direct superior BOTH work for the company, it can be a nice start to a career.

    Cons

    The company does not have the severance that a manufacturer would have and this becomes a big deal if you are in a state with miserable unemployment payouts.

    Give us more money for your expectations. Show more appreciation for your employees.

    I worked at inVentiv Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities to demonstrate individual excellence.

    Cons

    Too many peers don't pull their weight, bringing everyone down.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to employee engagement surveys, publish the unvarnished results and deliver on an action plan to fix the issues identified.

    Former Employee - Neurology Sales Consultant in Midland, MI

    I worked at inVentiv Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quality company, quality people, wide variety of products, leadership focused on changing culture to one full of leaders at every level

    Cons

    Company in a transition period due to lack of innovative products being developed. As a result, career not secure. Too quick to just abandon established relationships in critical disease states.

    Advice to Management

    Historically, too quick to abandon continuous specialist support. This makes it very difficult to reestablish trust when you need it.

    I have been working at inVentiv Health full-time

    Pros

    Quality, Salary, Knowledge of Disease Process and Industry, Good Benefits. Managers are friendly and excited to have you on their team.

    Cons

    Not very flexible since it is a 24/7 response. Shifts work. Overtime on-call rotation. Yet to see if the opportunity to advance exists, hopefully it does exist!

    Advice to Management

    Keep excited about your product and your employees and you can not go wrong! Always remember why you are doing this...it is for the patients!

    Pros

    Great leadership, your peers will do what it takes to ensure you succeed. There add roles for both independent workers and those who thrive on teamwork.

    Cons

    The annual increase in pay could be better. Sometimes projects require working additional hours but this is not frequent.

    Advice to Management

    Continue reaching out to all of the teams. It's especially important for employees working remote to feel a part of the team.
