    I have been working at PAREXEL full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible starting time, however with the large hours you will be working the only way you can take advantage of this will be to work until 10pm that evening

    Cons

    Overworked, top heavy management structure, constant changing of goal posts / timelines by project leads that is always left to associates to sort out (and along with it the stress), very low end of pay compared to all other CROs, work here as a last resort

    Advice to Management

    Value your people

    Pros

    As this is product based company, majority of the applications are self owned & maintained. So you don't see too much pressure during outages, any planned / unplanned activities in your work.

    Flexibility to WFH (twice in a month)

    Pickup and drop - cab facility for each and every employee (within 35 KM radius). If your project demands, you can get a dedicated cab alone.

    Free food (Lunch & Dinner)

    Comfortable work environment

    Manager connect

    No Variable Pay

    Working Hours per day 8.5 (which includes a 30 min lunch break)

    Cons

    I didn't observe / experience any cons in my visibility & scope so far.

    Advice to Management

    Creating onsite opportunities will definitely help PAREXEL and its employees a more and more better growth.
