        They have the data, that's why they are still surviving


        If you're in pharmaceuticals and in need of data, your ONLY option is to purchase IQVIA's raw data and handle the analytics in-house. Be cautious when relying on their in-house models or analytics; these are often subject to manipulation through methods they describe as "smoothing" or "imputation," essentially compromising the data's statistical validity. While IQVIA does have an abundant supply of valuable data, their capacity for sound analysis is questionable at best. A significant portion of their managerial staff has limited understanding of statistical principles, yet they don't hesitate to adjust data to align with preconceived "expected outcomes." If clients were privy to these flawed practices, they would most likely disregard the end product. (Although, if you're simply seeking validation for your preferred results, IQVIA is excellent at creating those illusions). Employees holding advanced degrees are regularly sidelined, with advancement opportunities primarily reserved for those who can persuasively present flawed data to both clients and senior management.

      Project Manager

      Hey everyone, Just needed to vent a bit about this job hunt. It's been a wild ride, to say the least. Lately, it feels like I'm sending my applications into a black hole, and I'm not alone in this, am I? Interviews seem to be the rarest gems, and job postings seem to disappear as soon as I hit 'apply.' Anyway, I'd love to hear your experiences. What's been your biggest frustration as a job seeker? How do you stay motivated in this crazy journey? Any words of wisdom or empathy to share?


      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?
