      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A market leader in healthcare with chances to work with the biggest names in pharma and biotech, on life changing clinical trials. You are contributing to new impactful diseases treatments from Cancer to Heart Disease, and work with people that are some of the foremost experts in their fields. Good sense of teamwork, industry leader, great benefits. Flexibility in schedule as well as location working remotely or in your local office.

      Cons

      Project timelines and customers can be challenging. Big company can feel disconnected, need to find your niche and build relationships. Global teams and projects means your hours can be all over the place.

      Excellent company, needs some improvement

      Feb 5, 2021 - Project Manager in Raleigh, NC

      Pros

      Leader in the CRO industry. Advanced technology makes your job easier. You work with big clients who know what they’re doing and skilled team members who are experts at what they do, so not everything falls on the shoulders of just a few people. If you get a good line manager, you can grow and develop a lot.

      Cons

      Processes are too detailed. There are too many sources of information and reporting. Resourcing is always slow and challenging. Each department within IQVIA does their own thing so it feels very siloed at times. Senior oversight is not always transparent. There is a “cut-throat” culture in a lot of ways — lots of throwing people under the bus instead of building people up. I’ve seen this improve in the last 2 years. Salaries are lower than competitors but I understand why - it’s because they put more money into tool and systems to support project managers to make their job easier.

      Inspiring, Motivating, Growing Rapidly

      Mar 22, 2021 - Account Manager in San Diego, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Inspiring and motivating senior leadership teams have created a positive work environment and overall culture.

      Cons

      There are many outstanding aspects to this organization. The downside is that it’s difficult to confidently capture and advocate for every offering, every service, every facet (to ultimately help build more business) without the guidance/training on the bigger business picture. Work life balance has been a challenge as well — although difficult to fully gauge through a pandemic.

      It was good while it lasted but not worth it

      Pros

      1. Flexibility for personal life is managed well, and always supported by management 2. PTO

      Cons

      Management was literally the biggest headache of my career. My talents were wasted and overlooked. Some positions can feel dead end and opportunities for advancement only come if you are a favorite. Pay scales are not competitive.

      More silos than a farm

      May 6, 2021 - Account Management

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They pay well, salaries are great, you have flexibility and unlimited vacation. (Make sure you use it!) A lot of smart people and a nice people. There is work/life balance - but you have to ensure that for yourself!

      Cons

      Too many siloes. Multiple teams working the same client - and no internal dialogue around the client. Embarrassing. Nearly impossible to work across the silos.
