I have been working at QuintilesIMS full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working as a consultant at IMS in one of the regional offices often entails work with international clients and more stimulating projects than your average local consulting job. As a premium provider to the pharma industry IMS offers a variety of opportunities, consulting, data services and everything in between. Employees are well respected.

Cons

Silo'ed departments, the company has acquired several smaller companies in the past and some still operate as such. The pressure to perform often creates disruptive competition between employees. Promotions are only every six or twelve months, not when a person is ready for it.

Advice to Management

Don't try to be the answer to everything.

    Good stepping stone to start career
    Travel opportunities
    This is a good company to start a career, will help prepare for corporate business world, by showing the opportunities and potential pitfalls of corp America.

    Cons

    Favoritism (it's not what you know, it's who you know)
    Expectations are not realistic/achievable, which is demotivating
    Quality employees undervalued, under-recognized
    Often too internally focused, 'tick box" mentality
    Meetings for the sake of having meetings
    Don't expect reward for job well done. Everyone comes with their own siloed agenda to the table, and you will find yourself going nowhere very fast.

    Pros

    Great managers, clear job expectations, excellent benefits

    Not much chance for moving around to different departments. I no longer want to follow the path of my current department and I am having a hard time getting my foot in the door with other departments. I feel a bit trapped in my position.
