      Top-heavy, Disorganized

      Pros

      The company is very much a "work-at-home" company (mainly to save themselves overhead costs, not because they care about your work-life balance.)

      Cons

      It's a stepping stone if you need a job until you find something better. Turnover is very common and is not surprising to anyone. They will fill your chair with another breathing body. The company continues to be very disorganized and is way too top-heavy. Only those who don't know what they're doing can be promoted. Everyone else is stone-walled. Pay is very low, benefits are as poor as anywhere else, and don't expect a decent bonus. If you're lucky to get one at all, only half of it will be cash compensation. If the economy was better this company would be sinking quickly, because people would bailing out faster than the passengers on the Titanic.

      Overall iMC-Dallas Office Review

      Pros

      The company allows for remote working. Great benefits. Amazing culture! Promoting from within can occur. I personally feel the work/life balance is great, especially coming from event planning during weekends and all hours of the night. In this position it is mostly 9-5:00pm Monday-Friday. I will have to say, for the Dallas office to be mainly women everyone works really well together!

      Cons

      Tracking time can be difficult as you are required to keep track of your personal PTO, vacation ect on a very confusing accrual calculating system (in essence, you are HR). Not only that, it is frowned upon to ensure you have calculated correctly with the in office operations director. Though this is inVentiv's largest office, there is no in-office HR employee/s to assist you.

      Good company bad benefits

      Apr 19, 2016 - Senior Clinical Research Associate in Boston, MA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great colleagues small company feel great line managers and morale. Hard work is recognized and rewarded, retention bonuses help, regional travel, workload is regularly and work life balance is actually highly emphasized to CRAs because the company prioritized retaining CRAs and preventing CRA turnover right now.

      Cons

      Bad benefits. PTO is 15 days a year with 2 floating holidays but you are not allowed any sick days or personal days for family emergencies. Any time you need to take off due to illness or family related illness comes from your vacation days. Health benefits are also terrible. Absolute bare minimum.

      Pros

      Great work life balance. Also has a great talent network including management that works from an encouragement standpoint with a solid focus on training.

      Cons

      When your contract ends, you'd better hope there's something else you are qualified to do within the company.

      Pros

      Consistant growth, always busy which means great job security. inVentiv offers many types of services to clients so there are a variety of ways for career growth and opportunities. The employees at inVentiv are very supportive, understand teamwork, are very dedicated. Everyone works hard and prides themselves on getting results....refreshing to see people so dedicated. Upper management also values work/life balance. I've never been denied a day off....been understanding with sick kids and other life issues.

      Cons

      Lack of efficient marketing and branding...hard for people to understand what we do and how we do it.

      Finding the perfect work life balance is hard. Our timelines in the recruiting department are too short. This causes a lot of after hours work.

      Pros

      Pretty awesome work-life balance and schedule flexibility. People are friendly and great to get along with. Easy to grow.

      Cons

      The benefits are horrible. Medical insurance is basically useless. Hard to get more money. No incentive available and no structured pay increase or bonus beyond a very small annual merit.
