    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.

    I have been working at inVentiv Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been able to get involved in many aspects of Recruiting and have learned so much. There is opportunity to participate in various trainings to better myself and the organization as a whole. There is also a strong sense of teamwork where we all help each other out.

    Due to the rapid growth of the organization, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the excessive workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open communication is critical. Always make sure the work can be done in the timeline provided.

    I have been working at inVentiv Health as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very comfortable enviroment. People are friendly. Depending on which client you are assinged to the workload seems fair enough to keep the clock ticking until you leave.

    Cons

    Been contracted as temp for over six months and have learned three programs, meanwhile people who are here permanent only perform on one program and do the bare minimum and receive fulltime benifits. Salaries are below national average. Even if offered a permanent position and receive benifits I fear that I would still break even with my bills at the end of the day, and living in NJ salary is a huge factor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer livable wages. NJ is an exspensive state. All work and no play demoralizesemployee moral.

    I have been working at inVentiv Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I started right out of college in our HR department then moved over to Recruiting after 1.5 years. I was them promoted within 1.5 years to my current role. Very supportive and caring co-workers and managers, constant training/development opportunities, and good benefits (Paid time off, 401k & matching plan, paid holidays, flexible work scheduling when necessary).

    Cons

    the company is still restructuring as a whole to align some of the divisions and departments within the divisions so there is some disconnect in processes and knowledge between the divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have departments sit together to agree upon contract/client terms so that the outcome can be favorable for everyone.

    The people and environment are great. They treat their employees well, even to a lowly intern like me. Makes you feel good coming to work, especially if you get put in a good team.

    Sometimes, a little all-over the place.

    I have been working at inVentiv Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are comparable to many other companies with regard to health insurance, vacation and 401K plans. Located convenient to major roads.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of employee turnover lately and the atmosphere is not very positive amongst employees. It has also been hard to get vacation approved even when requested six months ahead. Workload is at a constant high which is quite stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees like you care about their contributions and that they are a valuable asset to the company. Many feel like they are of no real value and can easily be replaced.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    I 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.
