    Pros

    Good company overall. Line Managers tend to be awesome. They company won't assign more than 2 protocols but preferably one. Perdiem could be better but is not that bad.

    Cons

    They advertise that CRAs gets traveling quarterly bonuses but the metrics are so high that only a very few CRAs qualifies for these bonuses. They also advertise that after two years with the company CRAs qualify to get 2 paid weeks of Sabbatical but what they don't say upfront is that the pre-requisites for Upper Management to approve the sabbaticals are so up high that every time you apply for it, it gets denied. It seems that they use the "Travel bonus" and the "Sabbatical" benefit as a way to attract CRAs to compete with other CROs but the reality is that they don't aloud CRAs take their Sabbaticals or give CRAs traveling bonuses no matter how much a CRA travels because the metrics are designed to benefit the company not the CRAs.

    Advice to Management

    They need to treat CRAs better.

    Pros

    None that come to mind

    Cons

    The contract co who hired me through Syneos Health laid me off after 3 mos. There was no cause for this- they said “not enough engagement with the team” . This was false. No warning that you are being laid off. Compensation and severance not adequate. Syneos team and management feedback and communication is very poor.
    Don’t work as a contractor with Syneos Health or Inventive Health.

    Advice to Management

    Need more communication from management.
    Management should must be tougher with the contract company.

    I worked at inVentiv Health full-time

    Pros

    Some people who work there are good people, there are some hard-working doers there

    Cons

    A leader, when presented with information regarding sexual harassment, responded "well, we don't know intent"

    Long hours and no respect for employee's personal time. Saying your not available on a given weekend months in advance is not even an option. You will be treated like you've abandoned the company if you do that.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment and train managers for how to deal with scenarios where they have to address the issue.

    Avoid sweeping problems under the rug.

    Respect people's personal time.

    Don't treat people like cogs in a wheel.

    Listen to your employees before they all leave.
