    I have been working at IQVIA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are some extremely strategic projects that one can get involved in at IQVIA. People are supportive. There is a lot of variety in the projects. There's significant exposure provided from the get-go.

    Cons

    The fact that it is a life sciences consulting firm can mean that there can be some monotony. You need to be in charge of the type of projects you want to get involved in and regularly voice it to the resourcing team, else there can be some mechanical projects sent your way.

    - Excellent managers who want to help you develop and grow - Endless opportunities to grow internally - Remote working is an option so the work life balance is fantastic. - well supported - you work with the best of the best in the industry - private healthcare - central location - the company is unparalleled in what it can do in the industry - the largest CRO in the world

    Cons

    - can feel overwhelming and coordinating internally at times can be challenging as it’s such a big company - not for the faint hearted. If you work hard it gets noticed and it pays off. It’s not a place to be if you want a relaxed job. - the company uses multiple systems internally and it can take a while to get your head around all of them. - internal system software is a little dated

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at IQVIA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The consulting team offers a wide range of opportunities and projects. From development of patient-centered endpoints to go-to-market strategies and product design In particular, the Reading Team is smaller team than the one in London, thus you end up knowing everyone very well and there is a sense of camaraderie.

    Cons

    Some weeks can have very long work hours. Furthermore, if you want to progress, there are great opportunities but you need to be a well-rounded individual and demonstrate that consistently, which can be challenging throughout all the projects.
