    Pros

    Job security, variety of systems to support daily work, good trainings, clear work instructions.

    Cons

    Constantly changing environment within company - re-designs, changes in structure, leadership, processes and ownership. Extremely high workload increasing every year, decreased promotion opportunities within last few years due to budget limitations, work is not recognized by management. Constant staff rotation, no staff retention.

    Advice to Management

    Stop constant flow of changes within organization, let employees to settle down with new processes before introducing new ones. Increase your focus on employees and staff retention.

    I have been working at IQVIA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very smart people, willing to spend money on investment projects, good renewed focus on data science and analytics.

    Cons

    More senior people don't tend to understand either the technical side or people management, they tend to be very commercially savvy, which is good but a lot of the time don't understand what their direct reports are doing or how to get the best out of them.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in managers with better emotional intelligence and, less importantly, more technical skills particularly if they are managing very technical people.
