    Data Visualization Analyst

    Data Visualization Analyst (Current Employee) Quincy, MA (US)

    ProsLearn a lot about business skills, how to write "Business English". A lot of great people here who are all very nice to me.

    ConsThere is no perfect places. I think you should judge people based on their performance... not seniority level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvise is the same as the cons, but it's difficult because you can only oversee this much... I think an implementation of judging people by their accomplishment is better than seniority.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good jump off point for people new to job market

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA (US)

    ProsVery relaxed atmosphere to work in. Not very much pressure unless there are some deadlines to meet. Excellent people to say the least.

    ConsPay and management. Pay is not competitive or reasonable for American adults. Unless you are willing to scrape by look elsewhere. Management, upper management to be accurate, is barely communicative.

    Project Associate

    Project Associate (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA (US)

    ProsSmall company with a potential of been a great place to work.

    ConsPoor management, lack of respect from management. Con employees with false hope for advancement. Clinical managers are inexperienced, rude, and no one holds them accountable. Line management is a joke, micro managers with no management experience. High turn over rate due to the politics and bureaucrats.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe vision for premier research is not properly executed by those put in charge to do so. Management should be more transparent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Love, Love, Love it here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCame here after being burned out from my last job. The company has made alot of improvements from my understanding to make it a great place to work. I've been very happy with the changes and my line manager has been great. My travel has been great and I like the benefits very much.

    ConsProcesses could be a bit tighter, but that has already improved since I joined.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Senior Clinical Research Associate

    Senior CRA (Current Employee) Milan (Italy)

    ProsYou've given the chance to express your ideas and opinions. Ability to work with in rare diseases and paediatric studies challenges you are they protocols are usually difficult and there can be recruitment obstacles.

    ConsTraining system needs to be improved. Self-study of SOPs and occasional WebEx is not enough. Great disparity between US and European operations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in your employees. Sometimes it feels that teamwork and company culture is lacking. Leadership at the country level needs to be more present and available to their employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    4 stars in Sofia

    Data Acquisition Analyst (Former Employee) Sofia (Bulgaria)

    ProsEasy management, great office, nice young people, good career opportunities and nice working hours in my case 11 to 7 PM. One day home office weekly.

    ConsVery specific experience which is not always applicable in the local labor market; payment could have been better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management is in general doing a good job, keeping employees in the loop and being fair as long as fairness is possible being a manager on project based teams. There are not enough activities boosting the team spirit so go and organize them.

    Great career growth ... not the best pay

    Project Analyst (Current Employee) East Hartford, CT (US)

    ProsIf you have good ideas and are vocal about them you'll be heard. I was able to do great things at my time with the company. The culture is great too - a lot of great friends that are there when you need them.

    ConsPay! The CRO industry is extremely price competitive. Be prepared to be paid about 20% less than you could make elsewhere, and be prepared to be given a larger work load than you'd get elsewhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnfortunately I completely understand. Paying employees more means getting a lot less business!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sr. CRA

    Senior CRA (Former Employee)

    ProsThe pay was decent and that's the only good thing about this organization and that you actually got paid before you submitted your hours.

    ConsThe worst group of Line Managers, CTMs and Directors I have ever worked with. I had a line manager that micro managed and it drove me nuts, she speaks to you like you are a child. While out on PTO I returned to work and out of the numerous emails that I had received more than half were from my line manager alone. Constantly wasting your time while you are on site for non important issues. They employ Clinical Managers who have never monitored before which means they don't know many of the basic monitoring 101 rules. Payroll is located in Europe and they never respond to voice or emails. If you have an issue with pay you have to first go through your line manager who in return will follow up with payroll on your behalf. Not to mention the resourcing staff that's another issue. Management at this company is a big joke and is the reason many folks have left.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmploy Managers who know what they are doing

    Pressure

    Senior Clinical Research Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsI love the fact that I get a paycheck bimonthly along with frequent flyer miles and meeting interesting people along the way.

    ConsMetrics, metrics, metrics is all I ever hear.

    Advice to Senior Managementvalue your employees
