Project Manager (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – November 12, 2018
This review is only a reflection on the client facing IT department. Poor processes, maintaining an overly complex poor performing product, leads to constant scrambles to address the never ending list of bugs.
Engagement Manager (Current Employee) – Pennsylvania – November 9, 2018
Started off okay but the more I did, the more work and direct reports I got, to the point of being overloaded. The company is still trying to merge all of its acquisitions under one umbrella...will likely take a few more years.
Senior Patient Recruitment Lead (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – November 7, 2018
They talk a good game about caring about work/life balance, and being focused on patients, but the unspoken culture and expectation of IQVIA is to work overtime, not just occasionally, as is expected with most jobs, but the vast majority of the time. In my department, most people consistently work 50+ hours a week, and work well after working hours in their respective time zones. One of the challenges for my department in the company is the constant change in structure, management, and job responsibilities (in under three years, I've had four supervisors, two title changes, two major changes in job responsibilities/departments--more responsibility for no additional salary, and one insurance provider change), and the benefits are not that great for a large company such as this. One of the hardest parts of the job is the amount of training required. I understand this industry is highly regulated, but they add so many more trainings it's crazy, plus you don't use the majority of it, or by the time you need it, the process or software has changed several times or become obsolete. One good thing: Generally speaking IQVIA hires good people--smart, educated, well-qualified people. The people you work with on the day-to-day are excellent. It's the larger company with which I have issue.
Unrealistic goals, high turnover, and work life balance is low. My department really needs a makeover and it could be nice place to work. Working hard is fine, working over time is fine, but a problem if you have to fight for time off after working around the clock.
Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Horsham, PA – October 18, 2018
Mock-ups done in PowerPoint. Requirements done in Word. No advanced SharePoint. Manager never met with me. Employees were nice. Given no extra training outside of IQVIA internal classes. Didn't have budget to support other training.
Senior CRA (Current Employee) – Home Based – September 12, 2018
IQVIA is definitely the leader in the CRO sector. It's a large company so it has its benefits and drawbacks but overall, it's a solid company. The workload can get high and can get frustrating when others don't seem to be working as hard.
Consultant (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 10, 2018
Organization seems to change pretty regularly due to a high level of acquisition. Its a nice place to work, but can be hard to keep up with such constant change. This likely is a temporary phase, and most organizations seem to go through it.
I really enjoy the work life balance at IQVIA. The work schedule has flexible start times and working from home has been a great perk. The work day is broken up handling Expense Accounting, audits then daily banking. This position also includes a certain amount of customer service, assisting all our US locations and our Canadian based employees, researching and providing resolutions for banking issues. I've learned to work with PeopleSoft, which is very intuitive. The management is very professional, adhering to the culture IQVIA promotes at every level.
Engagement Manager / Senior Technical Specialist (Current Employee) – Deerfield, IL – September 8, 2018
I have worked at IMS Health / IQVIA for the past 5+ years, and have been part of many different projects, from one end of the country to the other. I worked out of my home, and travelled to many assignments (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, California, Chicago). I also worked from home for assignments (Phoenix AZ, Milwaukee WI, Seattle WA, Plymouth Meeting PA, Bridgewater NJ). My bosses were supportive and encouraging. They challenged me when I needed it and applauded when I made progress. Between 2016 and now, IMS merged with Quintiles, changed its name to IQVIA and acquired HighPoint Solutions. Our group was amalgamated into that group. I recommend IQVIA as a great company with a lot of opportunities!
Variety of work, Opportunity to learn
Some projects were thankless, HighPoint was a different culture
IT Analyst II (Former Employee) – Morrisville, NC – August 22, 2018
Worked on a large project in IT department. Project was poorly planned and poorly managed, major decisions made with little regard for feasibility, lots of politics and finger pointing when things didn't go well. The department talks a lot about being "agile" but has no idea what that means. For employees who reach a certain level on the food chain life is good; for everyone else, not so much. Lots of cultural issues they are not being acknowledged or addressed.
