Ever signed up for Quintiles, friend of mine is considering doing it and is curious to hear some feedback on how it goes.

Things like that weird me out just a bit so I'm not going to give any kind of fair opinion so I figured someone here has probably looked into it.

A friend of mine works there.. when I was laid off at Sprint, he told me it was a good way to make some pretty good money but I wasn't into being a lab rat

sort of; in the Navy they had an experiement called 'anthrax shots".
nothing like 1/2 of your body getting hot and cramping up to make you wonder 'is this safe'?
lol.

I know if you need money it pays really well but like I said to him do you even know what they are giving you?

Haha I'm way to much of a control freak to ever be used as a guinea pig.

As well it should.

I haven't done Quintilles but I have done medical testing. They tell you everything you need to know about what they're giving you. Half the time it's just sugar pill to rule out placebo. Plus, when it is actual medicine, it's generally stuff that is almost ready for market. Nothing crazy and experimental. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

ROFL

A forward combed mullet is the funniest visual I've ever had.

I quit using quintiles when the third ear started growing next to my butt. Now I can hear all my farts in stereo.

You need to consider the risks as well as the rewards Mecca; if this crazy medicine causes your hair to fall out, what else do you really have to live for?

My wife used to work there. She said you should never ever do that.

Is this planet humor or are you really talking about humans volunteering to be medical research subjects?

Normally I'd suggest trying Eharmony first, but you know your prospects better than I do.
