    "Terrible quality of life, awful management team"

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at QuintilesIMS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The role had a lot of potential, most of it went unrealized given corporate turmoil.

    Cons

    You will only be rewarded if you suck up to senior management or work within specific bounds - out of the box or independent thinking will not be rewarded, and will make you a target. This goes especially for women. They prorate new hire bonus potential to 20% of eligible bonus target even if employee has excelled in all projects. Certain people can get on a upward track, everyone else languishes in their current role with little opportunity to get skills to advance. 12-15 hour days are normal. Worked 100hrs multiple weeks straight. Compensation is poor for the work hours expected.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves.

    Pros

    The experience you get working at QuintilesIMS ranges depending on what group/organization you work for. I personally work for The Amundsen Group and have loved my experience so far.

    Work/Balance is good and the environment is great. The people are very sociable and especially as a younger worker socializing is a big part of what makes this place so enjoyable to work for.

    Cons

    No outstanding cons.

    Just continue to make sure that everyone feels valued and important.

    Location is kind of out of the way since it isn't in the city but our specific group will be moving to Cambridge this coming spring.
