    Pros

    The view is nice I suppose.

    Cons

    The benefits here are subpar, to say the least. Salary is non-competitive. CEO is ridiculously overpaid Company management is out of touch, does not invest in location or people. Morale is beyond low and tending downward.

    Advice to Management

    I guess your goal is to keep laying people off / condensing the leftovers until people quit, so just lay everyone off already and send the work overseas.

    Pros

    Excellent company for existing IMS Health. Legacy [Company] employee get nothing compare to same level of new joining, discrimination for new and old. good benefits but no reasonable promotion or performance merit increase for many years.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, after VP there is not organization hierarchy, everyone is team member and micro manage all of them. yelling in working place. no forward looking idea or improvement. no appreciate or engagement for good works. developer performance are gauged by bug count fixed not by quality of work put in.

    Advice to Management

    A Fresh eyes needed and developer should be treated like any other quintilesIMS employee. same benefits for all after acquiring the company.

    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 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.
