I totally agree with you that managers are cold and ruthless, and highly unprofessional. Managers are appointed who do not have the people skills required to do the job. There should be a training program they need to complete in order to become effective managers. EES is only a smoke-screen to make employees believe that Quintiles actually cares about you. But they DON'T. I have been stuck in the same position for more than 5 years, and not for lack of trying. I have applied for 4 different internal positions, but since you are REQUIRED to inform your manager if you are applying for another position, and your current manager and the hiring manager need to agree on whether the hiring manager can have you, you will stay where you are if you serve your current manager's purposes and agenda. When asking why you did not get the job, you very seldom get a response, which makes me distrustful of the process and the company. I am frequently stressed out to the extent that it makes me physically ill due to the high cost to you as a human being. They pay relatively well, but you need to your leave your soul in their incapable hands.
