    Pros

    inVentiv Health supplies comprehensive benefits packages (depending on your position, I'm sure), excellent training and a wide range of opportunities to choose from, should you qualify.

    Cons

    It's contract work, so there is always the lingering possibility that you will be without a job any day. This is the case in the commercial department. We found out on Halloween while we were in the field that hundreds of people on the project would all be without work by December 31st.

    Pros

    There is some room for growth and opportunities to transfer within the company. Health benefits are offered.

    Cons

    Culture has shifted so much that there doesn't seem to be a lot of happy people here. Many employees who had been a huge part of making the company what is was have been let go or resigned, taking it even further into the new corporate wheel and away from passion and originality. When their shoes are left unfilled, it shows. The culture seems very political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to retain employees that can help and stop breaking things that weren't broken.

    my experience was ok but not satisfied.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Burlington, MA

    I have been working at inVentiv Health full-time

    Pros

    Offer was given compensation was good visa process was going on smooth but at the end the offer was withdrawn.

    Cons

    Interview process took 3 months.

    Offer letter was given after 1 month of interview process. After accepting the offer letter Joining date was given after 2 months .

    I had given 2 weeks notice to my current employer and exactly 10 days before joining they had withdrawn my offer saying the position is no longer active.

    It creates unnecessary visa problems to non immigrants like me. Please do not stop your job search until you join this company.

    HR is not proactive.

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

    Pros

    inVentiv Health is a fantastic company! I was fortunate enough to be on a 6 month contract in the Recruitment Department. The people, the culture, and the work have been extremely enjoyable. It was an absolute pleasure to work with such a fantastic group of people, and I am sorry to see it end, but I hope to return shortly.

    Cons

    The only challenge I faced was the distance of my commute, but that was by choice, and because I enjoyed coming to work, I did not mind the drive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! I have been in recruiting for over 15 years, and this is by far one of the best experiences in a company I have ever had.
