    I have been working at Quintiles

    Pros

    I had a great manager and was contracted with a great Pharmaceutical Company. Great pay, car allowance, benefits, etc. My manager was always willing to help and overall the experience has been positive.

    Cons

    For my particular contract, the end date was very uncertain. They should have handled situation differently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees would be more loyal to you if you were most honest and up front about contract standings with them. Offer more help when contracts end in order to keep the employees you have already invested in.

    I have been working at Quintiles full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some great people work here, there is definite global exposure, ability to work on lots of different studies, ability to learn from lots of pharma and biotech companies.

    Cons

    Because of hiring practices, lots of junior inexperienced people. No indepth understanding of drug developement. Very siloed, everybody protecting their turf.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the work environment for your workers. Saying that work-life balance is a priority doesn't make it so without action. Improve compensation, pay raises. It is hypocritical to tout great profits and then reduce bonuses and merit increases. Quit trying to squeeze every last ounce out of workers.
