Pros

Great benefits and discounts ranging from free tix to RBC Center to Tuition Reimbursement to discounts on vehicle purchases. Training is best compared to other CROs in the area.

Cons

Communication is lacking between middle and upper management and employees. Managers are helpful, but some department heads do a poor job of communicating with employees.

Advice to Management

Employees respect honest feedback regardless of whether it is favorable to them or not.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great coworkers... those that remain.
    Vital product to pharma industry.
    Increasing emphasis on employee development, mentoring and retention as merits and bonuses eliminated.

    Cons

    Years of layoffs have taken their toll... those who remain are beyond stretched
    Not an innovative company
    Ability to execute beyond core products is questionable
    New owners (TPG) actions are sure to be disruptive to existing personnel, but could be of overall benefit
    No merit salary increases for most employees, reduced bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    End the existing PMP system, give people the PMP scores they deserve even if there's no ability to give merits.
    Focus on listening to the customer and driving results, no just on financial performance and "being in charge"

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you do not work in IT, Quintiles is a good company from what I heard from other employees.The benefits are nice, and the company is financially secure.

    Cons

    IT only has about 300 people supporting 28,000; management expects you to perform miracles with your hands tied behind your back. Senior management is out of touch and engulfed in politics.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the nepotism, promote the people who do good work and show an affinity for management, and acknowledge good work when you see it.
