    "Stay Away from this CRO"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Senior Clinical Research Associate in Sydney
    Current Employee - Senior Clinical Research Associate in Sydney

    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
