    I worked at inVentiv Health

    Pros

    Hiring process was smooth and training was complete and very well organized.
    My immediate manager was top notch as well as the upper management team. Benefits were mostly very good. I loved working here and wish there was another contract for me to get on.

    Cons

    The only downside is the health insurance plan (UHC partnered with an HSA) and with a large deductible. Personally, I do not like having the HSA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer an non HSA option with a much smaller deductible, even at a higher cost.

    I have been working at inVentiv Health

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, opportunity to help others.

    Cons

    Poor communication and disconnect between corporate company. Benefits were costly and poor. High deductible plans with no break in cost of premiums. Vacation time was average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put value in your employees and retention. Corporate laid off 75 people with 100's of open jobs and did not attempt to retain valuable employees.

    Promote within, and get managers that are chomping at the bit for success.

    Pros

    Convenient drive to Bucks and Montgomery county suburbs. If you happen to fall into the right clique, you won't have a problem keeping your job, even if your work isn't great.

    Cons

    GSW? Blue Diesel? InVentiv Health? InVentiv Communications? Which is which? Even the employees don't know! The fact that the company can't even figure out who they are is scary and shows how disorganized the company is.

    The Newtown office is small and after layoffs, continues to grow smaller with little to no new business. Work often goes to the NY office so the newtown office is left with nothing creative. There is a lot of personal drama and cliques. People often jump around from one InVentiv company to the next because they can't find anything better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if your own employees are confused about who they work for, imagine how your clients must feel. In what world does "GSW, an InVentiv company, fueled by Blue Diesel" make sense?
