    Pros

    - Pay is great
    - Flexible hours
    - Room for advancement (based off performance)
    - Friendly coworkers
    - Modern & overall nice looking facility

    Cons

    I should have known from the start that working for the company was going to be annoying just by the way they spell their name...like does the V in the middle really need to be capitalized??

    To summarize, working for this company is a big headache....you're not only working for inVentiv...you're working for multiple different companies.
    I can't even write a review because honestly it's just far too complicated.
    But hey, as I said, the pay is great!

    Advice to Management

    My only advice would be to upper management and that would be - make it easier for your employees to comprehend what it is they're actually doing. And use less applications/programs. It's getting ridiculous.

    Pros

    Challenged to grow. Continuing education was excellent.

    Cons

    Having constant change of District managers made it difficult to build relationship.

    Advice to Management

    I always responded better to a manager that "mentored' me rather than "managed" me.

    Pros

    You are well trained and provided the needed equipment. Bonus potential depends on what contract you are on.. Provide a lot of different potential companies to work with.

    Cons

    If you dont perform, they will find somebody that will. some contracts are short which causes some challenges. always found me another opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    be honest with the reps about the product, bonus and future. Treat everyone fairly and pay a fair market salary and bonus given the experience you want in a rep

    Pros

    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 Management

    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.

  11. Overall, a very good experience.
