How is Quintile IMS as a company? Is it reputable? How does it compare to big 4?

In particular, their consulting practice.

Into pharma, absolutely

My mom worked at quintiles for 10 years. She enjoyed her position and moved on to a director role at a pharma start up company. That company’s name deff holds weight if anything else. Everybody in Parma knows them. Although they have gone though some serious changes and M&A in recent years.

What firm are you with?

About the same length but significantly less girthy

Wife works there, they just changed their name to IQvia FYI (yeah, I’m not crazy about the name either). She’s happy there, although most of the work is focused on Pharma R&D, so very niche. You won’t get the broad industry exposure that you would get at a big 4.

Do you think someone who's worked at IQVIA would see decent exit opportunities?

Has your wife been there long? did she transition into it from another consulting gig?

Thank you for the helpful responses!
