    Pros

    Good people to work with. Pay was compariable. Oppitunities to advance and gain valuable experience.

    Cons

    Not a great work/life balance. PTO schedule wasn't great, 12 days total plus a couple federal holidays - but something like 5 of your PTO days needed to be used on Christmas holiday and no roll over. Work from home enviroment did not facilitate coorporation and it was difficult to complete assignements. Management would change and lay off entire departments to hire back a few of those laid off and start new teams doing essentually the same tasks.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise 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.

    Immature atmosphere and inexperienced co-workers

    Pros

    Small environment lends itself to a close relationship with management and co-workers.

    Cons

    Small environment lends itself to "clicks" and unprofessional work relationships. The department in which I worked was also disorganized and underdeveloped. Standard industry practices in my experience there was not being adhered to rather the "Premier way". This practice led to a lot of turnover and inexperienced employee's.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Pay 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Came 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.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    You'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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest 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.

    Pros

    Easy 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The 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.
