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.
Multi-channel Marketing Operations Consultant (Former Employee) – Plymouth Meeting, PA – July 24, 2018
Since IMS Health started buying up smaller consultancies and eventually started their Managed Market group, the clash of cultures and management styles were a mess. My hope is that with time that changed.
I was with the company for only two months after finding out that I was going to be layed off.... This was not only a shock but a disappointment that a company would hire me on, just to dump me and most of my fellow accounting colleagues a short time after I started. There were company layoffs but still did not make sense to hire me for such a short period of time. Work-life balance is fantastic. Company definitely cares about its employees. Will commend them for giving us three months worth of notice prior to termination. Overall great company, would work for them iagain if presented the opportunity to.
Clinical Trials Assistant II (Current Employee) – Overland Park, KS – May 31, 2018
Unfortunately, the promotion/growth opportunities have been very small and extremely slow. Because of this, many people are leaving the company to join competitors or different types of positions all together. The turnover rate is very high.
Extremely nice and helpful people
Minimum promotion; very low staffed leading to being over-worked
You are given the opportunity to work on interesting and challenging projects with many different pharma companies. You will work with many talented people with a wide variety of experience in the industry.
Senior Territory Manager, Central Florida (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – May 18, 2018
Would recommend IQVIA to anyone who wants a professional environment. The people are very professional and have a desire to enable you to succees. Immediate management is excellent. There is a desire of teamwork in the ranks and everyone has an opportunity for advancement.
