    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.

    Pros

    relaxed environment, no one cares

    Cons

    Not sure where to start and end this, a director is a dictator (not all but one person) and everything is as per his wills and wishes, regional support for wrong reasons, worst development team, no testing capability, guess what they take few people knowing they are bad because an individual's position will be secured. Never join if ur in aura

    Advice to Management

    please remove ur managers who are not people managers..

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

    Pros

    Some Q staff are great, some low level Q managers are great. No idea about the IMS side of the business as there's has been no real attempt to integrate yet for the front line staff.

    Cons

    WLB is crap, but it always has been. Q used to be good, but the IMS takeover of Q has been awful. Communication is non existant. Senior management are all IMS, there are no Q senior management left. This means the legacy Q people no longer matter to the business. The new name is an unpronounceable mess. The new logo is only worthy of eye-rolls. A shame for what used to be a good company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to communicate. Treat your staff like adults. Pretend that legacy Q staff matter or count for something instead of leaving us out of everything. Have your senior staff care pretend to care about legacy Q people.

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

    Pros

    Good medical, dental, 401K match, some departments allow work from home, good work/life balance

    Cons

    Small raises, difficult to advance your career

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees who have years of experience, education & knowledge, and reward the hard work - the quality workers won't stay if they're not compensated accordingly.
