Great place if you like impossible goals

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have been with the company for several months . I am now leaving due to the lack of support and unobtainable goals set by the company. Lots of effort made in my behalf to get nothing back. The management seem to only get in touch if there is an issue.

Micro management

Management is not efficient could have been better training. Supportive management and better work culture. People haven't got a chance to learn properly and were given lots of sites to work on

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

Management is not good

Easy place to work

Work was easy nice breaks and lunches. Was a remote job. You could be doing so many different things in such a short space of time. Manager was good. The people who did the training were pretty good. Overall a nice place to work.

The culture of blame

This company are very good at blaming their staff and enforcing new working conditions with no notice. Appalling company and shocking IT systems. Management are unprofessional and are basically messengers for the company. IQVIA is the worst company I have ever worked for and I will never work for them again.

Pros

N/a

Cons

Poor IT, unrealistic expectations, bad management
Was this review helpful?

Stressful, no interest in staff.

I worked on the COVID-19 infection survey. Management was really poor, and there was no thought for how decisions effected staff. There was rarely any discussion about what the staff needed, it was a top down way of making decisions which was both stressful and impractical. Our continued employment was always threatened when figures fell, and the expectations were unrealistic.

Pros

Remote

Cons

No work life balance

Poor in every aspect

Untrustworthy and blaming culture. Poor management and driven by unachievable KPIs which are beyond your control. Minimal support and lack of support.

An exceptional place to work if you have the drive and passion.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working as an Iqvia covid field tester on the covid survey. Great company to work for, I've felt valued and appreciated. Management is 5 star and always ready to help you achieve your best. Company benefits are exceptional.

Pros

Private health insurance, great salary, great management.

Cons

Occasional long hours including weekends and evenings.

Unfortunately a stressful work environment, constantly pressured to hit targets.

Unfortunately you are not looked after as a employee, this company only cares about hitting targets. Some of the managers and above have zero social skills. There is a high turnover of staff due to the constant pressure out on you to hit your targets. You loose your job even if customers are not available, you get the blame. You also have to drive out of your area up to 100 miles a day if not more. Tiring and stressful, you can’t take holidays when you want to. Terrible place to work.

Pros

You can claim mileage however they make it difficult for you to do that.

Cons

Serious long unrealistic hours, target orientated, The company does not care about the employees, just about how much money they can make, . Depressive, place to work.

A regressive working practise

Experience from being "in the field" only. Dictatorial and unsupportive. The job itself is OK and pleasant enough, it's just how it's managed. Plenty of opportunities to do compulsory tasks without pay as you only get paid for the days you're on the road at a flat daily rate, which in itself is not a bad rate, but it can mean that you never get a whole day or 2 days off together without having to do some sort of admin or delivery. Different agencies paying different rates & mileage for the exact same job.You get trained but the delivery of the training is awful and certainly appears not created by anyone who has actually done the job.

Pros

You meet some interesting participants and you get reimbursement for parking & tolls, you kind of get to plan your own day

Cons

Long hours, all weathers, lack of respect from management, not paid for all compulsory tasks, isolating

Great Managers and people to work with

I really enjoy working at IQVIA you are respected and told when you are doing a good job which keeps you motivated.Work with great Managers and team who are supportive and caring

Pros

Good rate of pay and excellent benefits
Was this review helpful?

Target driven

There is no such thing as a typical day, you call participants who have varying requirements and you prepare your kit and visit them at their home.Management are very rarely contactable. Very pressurised environment. The hardest part of the job is managing to get visits and you are penalised if you do not achieve targets through no fault of your own. The most enjoyable part of the job is driving around and meeting people.

Pros

Able to structure your own working day. Enjoyable work.

Cons

Pressurised environment, unachievable targets, goal posts constantly moving. Expenses almost impossible to claim, too many systems that do not work efficiently together.

Good company to work for

The role I do is interesting, there are many changes as it is a study re; Covid-19. The management are excellent and will support you through all the changes and needs of the study and will help you with career development. If you like working flexible hours this is the job for you although there will be evening and weekend work.

Pros

Supportive teams and management

Cons

Some unsociable hours
Was this review helpful?

poor

Staff not kept safe while out on the road. You have to work out of your car. Each manager can do what they like. And they change conditions and told by management that if you don't like it move on. Others get paid more to do the same job.

Pros

work from home

Cons

poor pay - not kept safe while working - poor management
