The only good experience I had working in Quintiles was to know great people that I continue meeting sometimes. Also there were good company initiatives but this were global initiatives, not regional. All the local initiatives we had were totally ignored by the Regional Manager.

Dislikes

This company never hears its employees, at least in Latin America. I made several proposals for improvements and I never was heard. The model did not allow the line managers to "manage" the trials directly, this was a task for the CTLs or PMs, but when an inspection had a bad result, they fired me. I did not have a budget for site visits, but I became the first responsible and I lost my job for that. They did not consider how we lowered the turnaround rate to 5% in the first 2 years, very high when I joined the company, that actually increased very importantly after I left; they did not consider either that I was the best rated manager in all LA in the 360° survey for 2007 or 2008. I really regret to had worked for this company and I would not recommend it to my friends.

Work

It is very complicated to work in a Company with the hands tied up. It was demotivating nevertheless, I used to work in average 11 hours per day and was worked very close to my team always.

Quintiles IMS is now called as IQVIA. I am glad that I have got this wonderful opportunity to join such a prestigious company from the beginning of my work life. I joined IQVIA as a fresher and now i am drug safety associate I have got high class training be it an=bout company ethics to project related training. My team mates, leads and manager are my great support helping me to grow in my career path and always support me and teach me new things. Career growth is that from a trainee to a safety associate with one year experience in different projects and database. Salary is also reasonable and as per market values. altogether I have had a healthy work environment and also IQVIA understands to give their employees a good work life balance. I am happy to be associated with IQVIA.

Dislikes

The only few things I dislike is the timings and a little work pressure.

Work

Work is a bit exiting but I would like to explore more in the research level.

Quintiles is a great place to work. I have started my career at Quintiles; It provides ample opportunities to learn new subjects through e-learning self-study courses. The compensation purely depends on how an individual contributes to a team. Work culture and Job security are the two best things an employee can except at Quintiles. Work Life balance is good in 75% of the projects. Food was provided at a very subsidized price.

Dislikes

I was bored with the kind of work I did. It was so monotonous. Few managers who shifted from other CRO's and KPO's (Accenture and Cognizant etc.) to Quintiles screwed the work culture at Quintiles. These few managers carried their bad working style from their previous employers to Quintiles and brought down the standards at Quintiles. At last, as an employee, you would have no choice to choose your immediate manager. Other than this the company was good during my days.

Work

My work was so monotonous that it made me feel bored.

Actually I have started my career in QuintilesIMS; it's a great organisation to learn new things within the organisation.

Dislikes

I did not like the micromanagement, my first line manager and second line manager are pretty good. I don't know why other managers involved in different managers employes, and the person screwed me like hell. He always tries to give bad feedback on me. This was the main reason to quite the job. Internal politics, gives response to only native fellows; head did not give any chances to listen your explanation. It was like jail for me; it's like first impression is best impression, guys who doesn't know proper English they will retain them.

No learning and development plans for the employees. Work life balance depends on line manager. Literally no benefits starting 2018. The compensation is average. The culture in Bangalore office is pathetic - micromanagement and inefficient leaders. Job security is nill. I witnessed people walking out of the floor crying and weeping. No growth and or opportunities and no work satisfaction.

Dislikes

Quintiles is not quintiles anymore. It got merged with IMS health and got bad.

As a fresher you can learn a lot of things.Food is very subsidized. Break out areas are very good. Monthly reimbursement of gym/any health activities, internet connection. Work from home option is there which can be suitable for many.

Dislikes

Pharmacovigilance is extremely hectic. Low pay scale. Less opportunities for promotion. Managers can call you any point of time to finish off any work.
