    Happy Employee -!

    Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsI am new to the company in the last year and have been so impressed with it so far. From working with my recruiter, the managers, and HR, they have all been wonderful. I feel like this is the direction that the industry is going, so I am thrilled to be here. I know that, if this project ends, I can be considered for other ones.

    ConsI don't have any complaints so far, but am just worried abut job stability like everyone else. I feel like inventiv has a lot going on right now, so that makes me feel more secure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI haven't met the upper management, but like what I have heard thus afar.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A positive, friendly environment

    Contractor Research Associate (Current Employee) Somerset, NJ

    ProsThe environment is very welcoming and friendly. Employees are easily approachable and willing to help. As a returning employee, inVentiv Health is very accommodating.

    ConsI was under the impression I would be given a higher hourly rate, however, with a limited budget, I was not given the amount I was originally told.

    overall positive experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsConsistant growth, always busy which means great job security. inVentiv offers many types of services to clients so there are a variety of ways for career growth and opportunities. The employees at inVentiv are very supportive, understand teamwork, are very dedicated. Everyone works hard and prides themselves on getting results....refreshing to see people so dedicated. Upper management also values work/life balance. I've never been denied a day off....been understanding with sick kids and other life issues.

    ConsLack of efficient marketing and branding...hard for people to understand what we do and how we do it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore branding/marketing materials....simple messages of who we are and what we do.

    Teamwork like I'd never experienced before.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsManagement is hands on and can actually step in and do your job if needed so they really understand the opportunities and challenges you face.

    ConsSome services subcontracted such as fleet management, pay management and expense reporting. Multiple service providers can be confusing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it going!

    Great People

    Senior CRA (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsinVentiv hires great people. Management cares and are helpful and approachable. This is on the FSP side in Clinical (Monitoring); I don't know what the CRO side is like.

    ConsHR information is a bit all over the place. Training is repetitive with the Sponsor company you are paired with.
