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

    Pros

    Good benefits currently, worried about insurance for next year

    Cons

    Purse strings got really tight after IMS took over. Seems as though making the stock holders happy is most important. Employees are not valued; there is no loyalty. Raises are pathetic, and do not match the amount of work we are all expected to do.

    So many empty promises. We are always having town hall meetings where they make promises, but nothing happens or nothing lasts.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and they will be loyal. Treat us like we are an asset and you won't lose so many people. Rehiring and retraining can't be good for the company.

    Flexible hours, clean work environment.

    Micro management. Tended to promote only those that would accept the lowest pay rate.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire so many contractors, employ more and if you have a contractors treat them well.
