    Pros

    Great people! Great leadership! Lots of encouragement, training, advice, understanding, just a great place to work! They treat sales reps great!

    Cons

    Not too many cons except if it is a contract you either know when it's going to end or you don't buy not at their doing! Would be nice to be able to move up from contract work from sales to management!

    Advice to Management

    If you have a strong sales rep advance them when possible! Give performance reviews truthful and not what upper management requires you to put! Other than that great place to work!

    Pros

    Great company culture, incentives, bonuses (for perm employees only), great training, lunches, employee appreciation events, etc.

    Cons

    Very busy, work has come first, temp and contract employees are treated like trash, and favortism could be worse but its present nonetheless.

    Advice to Management

    Treat ALL employees EQUALLY.. perm contract and temp.. all the same team working towards the same mission!!! It would be nice if temps and contractors could be converted especially after a few years on the job. Also, stop taking so many contracts with extremely tight turnaround times, especially when its high volume which is majority of the time.. or convert a few temps or contractors as you see the same volume or even more now in business.

    Pros

    inVentiv is really good at making money, at increasing profit margins. That's always the focus. As a result, it's a fairly stable company, even during turbulent times.

    Cons

    inVentiv is always focused on the profit margin, but sometimes that focus comes at the expense of a vision toward finding newer, better, greater ways to create value. Instead we seek only the ways to reduce cost. There could be better balance.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes there's a lack of vision. We're inspired to find ways to do things less expensively -- which is never bad. But we're seldom inspired to find ways to do things better. We don't focus on creating more value through great work, just maximizing margin through reduced cost.

    Pros

    good for new graduate to gain experience, more responsible compared to other contractor company, have good relationship with big companies

    Cons

    salaries not high, no benefits, job is not stable, no job security, but that's common as contractor job, not quite related to inventiv.

    Advice to Management

    management should consider increase the salary of your employees, it would be wonderful if company can provide any benefits.
