    I have been working at Premier Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good PTO/holidays and other benefits, management provides help when you ask for it

    Cons

    Training for new employees can be improved so they know the "Premier way", it seems like it takes a long time for new hires to learn their way around the job/company

    Pros

    Great work from home perks, in the beginning great management, small company in the RTP office- so you pretty much could see everyone.

    Cons

    The reorganization of the CMA role was just awful. It was poorly planned, and they were hiring managers who really didn't know their job, to lead a group of individuals who have been in the role without leadership for MONTHS. One of the senior managers never came into the office, and I'm pretty sure they were just a 45 minutes away. Don't believe the hype of a "CRA 1" program, it is not happening. They dangle the carrot over your head to make you believe you can advance in that area, but most clients do not want you unless you are a CRA 2. So I'm not sure how they are going to fill in the gap with this. When they hired Senior Management, all they did was really micromanage the work you did, without understanding what was going on. From what I saw the group before me is now gone. The entire group left within a 60 day time frame, and it was over Senior Management. All of this turmoil for only 42k a year. It isn't worth it. I've walked past the President, Ludo, several times and I have smiled and said good morning- sometimes he won't even look my direction after I wish him a good morning, other times he just rolls his eyes.

    The majority of people are lovely

    I have been working at Premier Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are nice. Lots of knowledge to be shared. Senior leaders are visible and available.

    Cons

    Little to no training.. first weeks are SOP. Tasks given with not much training. Everybody has noted that you have to make it up as you go if you want to survive. Team is completely overworked but it’s “normal” since it’s how it’s done. I’m not that way- giving 50-60 hours a week because the team is understaffed doesn’t make sense to me. Hire enough people for the work.
