    I have been working at QuintilesIMS full-time (More than 10 years)

    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

    Pros

    Market leader and interesting work which includes working with large Pharma companies. Good location in the centre of London. Nice bonus but not always given.

    Cons

    Very corporate environment and can be difficult to easily speak with senior management. Need to provide more responsibility to more junior members in the team.

    Advice to Management

    Convert competency ratings into salary increases because they are low. Also invest more into technology as it can be ten years old and causes issues in day to day working.
