I worked at QuintilesIMS (More than 5 years)
Big company, large reach, a lot of possible positions to move to.
Disfunctional management, especially in IT. No direction. Still trying to do all of the stupid ideas that others tried in the late 90's and long ago abandoned, like employee reviews with forced distribution. My friends who are still there say the best case scenario is to find a "safe place" and hunker down. And then hope the changes that constantly roil through IT don't blow it up.
I worked at QuintilesIMS as a contractor (Less than a year)
Interesting work. Financially stable, growing company. Decent work life balance. Contractors are treated well (except for Cons below). Opportunities to learn.
No compunction about advertising "contract to hire" when position is not budgeted (discovered after the fact). They will sound sincere, but there is no drive or effort to keep their promise despite positive performance feedback.
Advice to Management
Get your arrogance in check with respect to the timeliness of hiring talented contractors, who in good faith, come onboard expecting you keep your hiring promise.
