    I have been working at IQVIA full-time

    Pros

    Cannot think of a single one!

    Cons

    Very poor work life balance
    Too metrics driven
    Unsupportive during extremely difficult personal situations.
    Virtually no support or encouragement for junior staff.
    Too much work not enough staff (QMS solution = get rid of staff in fixed term contracts!!)
    Arrogant senior staff with no idea what the staff on the ground are doing!

    Advice to Management

    Think of your employees as people not numbers! Do not overload junior staff members (it’s really not rocket science!)

    Pros

    Historically flexible working approach they are happy as long as you are productive, this does vary from department to department

    Cons

    Pay for my position in central London is not great.

    They like to have mass culls every once in a while to offshore departments - which I see makes sense from a business perspective

    Advice to Management

    Include and listen to the feet on the ground, not with one way web-ex, but with interactive meetings to improve communication at all levels
