    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

    Large building with many different departments and very multi cultural. People are friendly and welcoming.

    Cons

    If you don't try enough it can be a little intimidating how large the place is- but if you try and mingle it's fine.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was very supportive and great to work with. I was a contractor so I was only there for 4 months.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with.

    Cons

    It was good at first but then all the major changes kicked in and information of everything wasn't really happening. After all the hard work we put in, we're being made redundant...

    Advice to Management

    Keep us informed!!

    Pros

    Great place to learn about the pharma industry and from other people. Fun sociable environment

    Cons

    Work life balance varies. It is somewhat chaotic because the focus is on revenue and profit rather than management. For instance performance reviews are completely last minute and barely fitted in alongside deliveries.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the innovation and big scale thinking.
    Try to sort out resource planning issues.
