    I have been working at QuintilesIMS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Somewhere they are committed to you development and in contrast to some other CROs you can spend your career here as internal development is taken seriously. They have done a lot of work to ensure they have market competitive salaries too. People are generally very nice and the offices are great.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be long hours but not all the time - really depends on the project and how you manage it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give up the commitment to early talent, people development and career mapping.

    I have been working at QuintilesIMS full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large company with lots of departments with the ability to move within departments to get varied experiences in the clinical research industry.

    Cons

    The merger with IMS has caused some issues in reorganization and some valuable people have left the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully once the dust clears from the merger there will be a clear direction for the company as a whole.

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

    Pros

    The company is willing to invest heavily in the resarch and development of technology solutions. There is also plenty of opportunity for anyone willing to work hard to move forward in their career.

    Cons

    It can be very bureaucratic so one has to be persistent and vocal in order to get things done. There are also many lifers here that are content doing the same thing every day so if you really want to make changes that impact internal processes and teams, then be prepared for people to drag their feet.

    "Merger - Ruined Company"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at QuintilesIMS full-time

    Pros

    Quintiles was a great place to work pre-merger. QuintilesIMS only cares about money for the senior leaders, and treat their employees poorly.

    Cons

    Over worked, under paid employees.
