I considered an offer from IQVIA/IMS. Spoke to a ton of people and heard pretty awful things. It’s a sweatshop with low pay compared to B4/LS boutiques. Also the constant rebranding from IMS to QuintilesIMS to now IQVIA has taken a toll on morale and definitely their reputation in the market. I see value in moving to a pure play LS shop/practice but I think there is much better out there than IQVIA, particularly because of the how they have changed over the past few years. Also, much like any big company, they have a ton of different practice areas so be very careful about what area within the company you look into. Happy to chat more if you want to drop a burner
