    I have been working at Clinical Research Advantage full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I started working as a research assistant at Clinical Research Advantage about 8 months ago and I couldn't be happier with my decision to join this fast growing company. When I was hired I was told that I would have a lot of opportunity for growth and that is aspect I have been able to experience first hand in just my little time here so far. It hasn't even been a year and I am already transitioning into a higher role! The management has been great with training me to reach my full potential and all of my co-workers have turned into some of my closest friends. I really love the culture and I can't see myself working anywhere else!

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of too many cons besides the fact that I have experienced a couple changes as they have continued to grow. If you are someone who can't handle change or doesn't like trying new strategies for success this might not be the company for you. Since I started working with them they have already acquired one large clinical research company and I think they bought out another company pretty recently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe more incentives for employee referrals.

    I have been working at Clinical Research Advantage full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Owners are overall decent people and promote a positive environment. They work hard as well which motivates other staff to continuously work hard. My branch had great cohesiveness with all employees, who always pitched in to help each other out. Great place to gain experience,

    Cons

    They don't promote movement upwards, they take advantage of eager employers. Are dictated by insurance standards and guidelines, so it is a constant battle for referrals, reimbursement, patient collection, & overall income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide regular guidance as opposed to becoming overbearing when referrals are low. Provide marketing materials instead of relying on your underpaid sales reps to design, approve through you, then finally order.

    I have been working at Clinical Research Advantage full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent staff, training, and opportunities for advancement. CRA will reward those who are dedicated, and put their time into the company. Many of those in management positions started at lower levels and have worked their way up. Also, there are opportunities for bonuses and with so many locations, options for relocation.

    Cons

    At the accelerated growth CRA is going through, lots of changes have and will continue to take place. Changes that are being made that affect the opperations portion of the company could use the feedback of those who will be affected the most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more opportunities for staff to give feedback regarding changes being made in the company.

    I have been working at Clinical Research Advantage full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I love my position and this company! It's fast paced! They offer bonuses and incentives that reward performance. There are opportunities to advance, great benefits and great people to work with. The company provides great patient care. I recommend this company to anyone who wants a fast paced, thriving company that rewards those who work hard and want to make a difference.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons to working with this company. When interviewing (for any company) make sure you would want to work with the person who is interviewing you - the other reviewers didn't seem to get along with their managers or peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe be more selective in hiring? The other reviews seem to be from those who weren't a fit with the cultulre and weren't with the company long. Look for people who are motivated by research, patient care, incentives, teamwork and the fast pace that our culture demands.
