    Life made difficult by manager and was pregnant

    Senior Regulatory Manager (Former Employee) Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    ProsI don't work there any more!!

    ConsTold by manager thati had to take maternity appointments on my own time and that once a month was "too many". When took manager to hr, felt I got treated unfairly and would have done them for constructive dismissal if I hadn't felt so stressed and depressed. Sideline you once pregnant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure managers are appropriately trained in hr policies and law and are made to realise that being on maternity leave is temporary. Make sure managers adhere to policies and do not tolerate bullying.

    Disappointing

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt is a small company that has potential if they were to assemble a good management team that would leverage ideas from their prior experiences.

    ConsWhere do I start....salary is not competetive, merit increases are non-existent, promoting from within does not seem to be a priority and the company seems rudderless at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo a better job of finding the pulse of your employees....there are some really smart and talented people with great ideas right under your nose. Take care of your employees and they will take care of you. Also hire better people to handle your bid defenses....this is a obvious area of weakness in the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A notch above Quintiles/PPD, but a lot left to be desired

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Company pays fairly well for being a CRO
    - No real micromanagement
    - Offer flexibility that benefits work/life balance

    Cons- All of the transition/acquisitions it's gone through the last 2-3 years have taken there toll
    - Very little communication between divisions
    - No feedback on job performance
    - Too informal; still stuck with small company mentality

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on development programs to make employees a best in class compared to rest of industry. Give honest feedback to employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
