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

    Pros

    Good place to work if you are a people person
    The product is always growing internationally and changing lives
    Great central location for commuting to and from downtown
    Co-workers are nice, teamwork oriented and always will to help out
    Benefits are good and cover tuition reimbursement, gym membership for example

    Cons

    Upper management is very cliquish and usually promotes their friends first regardless of others having a better work ethic and better qualifications
    Training is almost nonexistent so you have to be a self-starter and a quick learner from day one
    Quintiles realizes on the same people who work hard to cover work for those that don't produce results and are slackers
    Turnover rate is high but can be prevented

    Advice to Management

    Design a better training program

    I worked at QuintilesIMS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    opportunity for growth and various chances to work in different areas of the large company. growing so fast that assertiveness in stepping outside of core job scope is always available and can help you be noticed

    Cons

    inconsistency between the touted corporate culture and specific business unit culture. certain positions are much higher pressure than others. customers will push for everything yesterday and expect it, no excuses and no errors.

    Advice to Management

    put more effort into understanding the different needs of employees across very different job types and very different day to day operating culture to better address the "gaps" in employee engagement that are resulting.
