    I worked at PharmaNet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked for PharmaNet more so before the change to Inventiv so I can more speak to that. PharmaNet was a warm and kind culture. I very much enjoyed the people and my direct team.

    Cons

    I left right when management had changed. I missed the old team. Did not stay long enough to be able to comment on the new team.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose what was great about PharmaNet. The management loved the people and it showed.

    I worked at PharmaNet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My line managers were always great. I was allowed flex time and summer hours. Home-based position was very nice. I never felt that my job was in jeopardy.

    Cons

    The IT issues are unbearable, and the company lacks a usable CTMS. Merit increases are no longer linked to performance. Constant change creates a lot of turn over within project teams.

    Advice to Management

    Resourcing and IT issues

    Pros

    Some flexible work hours, opportunity to be innovative

    Cons

    Not willing to invest in technology to enhance job requirements. No formal training for job function, I trained staff more than I was ever trained. Benefits could be better.

    invest in technology and staff

    I have been working at PharmaNet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very few. Benefits were okay, location convenient.

    Cons

    Terrible morale. Minimal training, no clear communication from management. Rule by fear and intimidation. Archaic, old-school culture instituted by (deceased) founder is still maintained. Upper management cuts themselves off from lower employees. Territorial infighting between depts. Appeal to HR for resolution of bullying by another employee not addressed correctly (I should have sued). Truly a miserable experience.

    Advice to Management

    Go out of business.
