    I worked at IQVIA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    For Consulting Services - Exposure to a number of high-value projects pretty quickly - After building trust within the team, you are given opportunities to have client-facing time - Breadth of project types really help you learn and add value. This also helps you figure out what you enjoy / hate, and will help you throughout your career in Life Sciences - Flat structure - senior level employees don't have offices, and they are highly accessible - Highly merit-based, with opportunities for promotion / progression twice a year - There is a strong feedback culture to help you develop and learn

    Cons

    For Consulting Services - Pay is not as good as competitors in strategy consulting. There is also a tiered school salary system if you're straight out of school ("preferred" schools - aka Ivy league schools - have a higher initial salary at each position, and promotions / progressions are a percent increase in your salary so this could affect your salary for your entire career at IQVIA) - The staffing model is that you are expected to be on multiple projects at all time. For some people, this can lead to stress as project timelines shift and you have to mentally switch between projects. This can often be mitigated through communication, but can lead to some heavy weeks.

    I worked at IQVIA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I'm not sure I would work there again and don't have anything to list.

    Cons

    Poor pay structure. Constant struggle to get even a noticeable raise even with excellent reviews. Outsourced IT services offerings are not focused on providing quality to their customers. Bottom line always feels like the only driver for anything.
