The most useful review selected by Indeed
I felt trusted and hard work was recognised. It was a temporary contract and sadly they couldn’t keep us on. A lot of the permanent roles wanted clinical background

A nightmare I couldn’t wake up from.

What is the best part of working at the company?Decent salary for the roles available.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Inadequate systems relating to the role. Inexperienced line managers.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Chaotic operational practices with a thin veneer of ‘we care about you’ messaging. They didn’t care about or listen to feedback.What is a typical day like for you at the company?12 hour days. Mentally and physically exhausting. Expected to conduct mandatory training and travel to appointments 3+ hours away in your personal time while meeting metrics for day to day job role using systems that kept crashing.

Horrible workplace

Could really be a nice place to work if it wasn't run by a circus and you replaced most of the bad apples. Management have no clue what's going on, they promote favourites, genuinely believe they provide a good wage, many workers feel stressed and undervalued. They have the worst blame culture of any role I have ever worked, supervisors and management "nothing to do with me..." Issues are never taken onboard, there just passed or left for other people. Same people cracking the whip soon as they get a little bit of power, they stand looking at there watches while people walk in and out during start times and breaks. A place where it's one rule for some and another rule for the rest, Good for temp work if your looking to gap a couple months.


Easy to get, good for month or two.

Great company

I worked for IQVIA on the Covid Infection Study and found them to be a great company to work for. Management and other colleagues made it a job that I could enjoy and feel valued doing. I wouldn’t hesitate in applying to work for them again if the right job was advertised

Nice place to work

I enjoyed working for IQVIA throughout the pandemic. Good rates of pay and supportive management. You work independently which I like but you never feel on your own as there’s always somebody or a manager to call if needed

Worked for the covid project, management was awful start to finish. You were not valued as an employee, always told what you were doing wrong. No praise no incentives, I would avoid this company like the plague.

Worse company to work for

major work is outsourced on 10-year-old technology and no learning scope.As they don't use the latest technology obviously more hard work is involved with fewer resources.No Work Life balanceSenior management at the senior director level is dumb and doesn't understand anything of the work statement or technology involved or what's going wrong. They just know how to get work done with less effort and obviously offshore management easily make fool of such dumb management with bogus delivery which every year they have to re-deliver. No support from onshore management..remember they are dumb and don't understand anything.low pay and overworking (daily 10-12 hours).blame games and office politics are common and introduced by management.

Amazing People from Management Down

It's fun and everyone works as a team. It was a great project. Management take ideas on board. They recognise your hard work. You get bonuses and rewarded.


Really do give you recognition

Fair pay but repetitive work

The job is fairly paid but work is very repetitive and no real route to progression or further opportunities beyond that of the fixed term contract.

You can only progress if your part of the clique

If you FSP sponsor is good, then day to day is good. When it comes to progression you will only get promoted if your part of the clique. This applies to annual pay rises are a joke

Great training, excess work, unrealistic metrics

Training is great. Management keeps pushing CRAs to perform more and more visits. Our work no matter how much we work is never enough and it seems we get punished for not doing more than what’s agreed in the contract, which is already unrealistic. Expected to work during anual leave, management makes sure to tell CRAs that. No appreciation. We are expected to work 60h + per week. Good package of benefits.
