    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at QuintilesIMS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The salary and bonus are good.

    Cons

    Deceptive, non-transparent, cut throat leadership. This is one of the most unhealthy places I've ever worked. The Sr. leaders are only interested in saving their jobs in the upcoming merger. They do not care anything about their people or the work we do. It's a horrible place to work.

    I have been working at QuintilesIMS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary, bonus, vacation, medical and 401k are excellent. Pockets of talented staff, who have integrity and good business ethics.

    Cons

    not enough staff to execute on work, culture of "do more with less" and they keep giving staff less and asking for more.

    Advice to Management

    Try actually conducting a clinical trial at Q and see how "centralized mailboxes" and inexperienced staff in low cost regions makes for lots of re-work and frustration for employees and customers alike

    Pros

    Interesting work and can be an exciting and dynamic workplace.

    Cons

    There are many changes occurring causing the company culture to become redefined. When a company goes through major changes, no matter how positive the outcome might be, it becomes a very unsettling place to work and that has happened here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to honestly evaluate your processes and your leadership and keep your eyes towards the end goals.
