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

    Pros

    Worked with a group of interns on a project for the company. Very chill work environment, the projects were fun and our manager was constantly providing encouragement and support to us interns.

    Cons

    Direction of what we were supposed to be doing sometimes was not clear. Other than that, it was really a pleasure to work at inVentiv.

    Pros

    The company has a lot of growth and potential to move up. There is also work that needs to be done and they don't over staff.

    Cons

    It's a contract based business so you have to keep your fingers crossed that the business stays. The business doesn't spend money on keeping the units updated.

    Former Employee - Clinical Data Manager in Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at inVentiv Health

    Pros

    Work from home 5 days a week if worked more than one hour from closest office location. Pay and time off was average, while other benefits were poor. Creativity encouraged for most part but extremely long hours.

    Cons

    High deductible insurance plans at high cost, management quality was all over the place (very good to very poor), office culture was also all over the place and quality of work experience was dependent upon quality of management(internal teams could be very cliquish). Opportunities for advancement were not well published, very difficult to find out what positions open to internal candidates. Training was poor and communication within department was poor. Difficult to measure success as criteria changed yearly. The 'bonus' carrot was a constantly moving target with bonus and raises next to nil. Long hours are the norm (50-80 hours/week).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication, training and clearly posted opportunities for personal growth along with better and lower cost benefits would provide more incentive to remain with the company. More balance between work and home life needs to be addressed - specifically by incentivizing well qualified associates to stay, thus ensuring a good balance between experienced and inexperienced associates/team members.

    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.
