    Former Employee - IT Support III in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Medpace full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free lunch, work out room, good salary.

    Cons

    Mid-level management is ineffective with higher management in getting needed changes in place to improve the company. Often such projects are just put off "until another year."

    Executives primarily concerned about coming in under budget.

    No room for advancement or encouragement to advance to higher levels.

    IT Support group stopped training for some reason.

    Merit increase process was very vague. You have no idea if you're going to get one or not or how much of one it will be if you are going to get one.

    Culture is very much "everyone for themselves" and rife with nepotism.

    Pros

    Free fitness room, free lunch, benefits are decent, salary is decent.

    Cons

    Management makes promises they can't or won't keep. Very capable and bright employees are undervalued and unchallenged as promotions are not based on merit so much as popularity. Training is nonexistent. It's sink or swim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value employees who are bright and seeking the opportunity to learn and advance.

    I have been working at Medpace full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits: Free lunch everyday, onsite gym, secure building, and pretty good health/dental insurance with different savings plans like 401k etc.

    Cons

    If your not the Barbie Doll type don't waste your time...they say training is supposed to be 4-6 months but for about half its really a judgment of 4-6 weeks. This company really doesn't give you a chance to improve, gives no warnings before discharging really good employees. Just be cautious before accepting their offer, because it can really hurt your chances at getting another job like this one in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is willing to help, however you have to seek the help. Even if you do it doesn't make a difference if they will keep you on or not. They simply don't give their employees a chance to improve their skills...even if the job is something new.

    I worked at Medpace full-time

    Pros

    Co workers very friendly and hard working.

    Cons

    Upper management runs department based on fear, threats, and belittling staff. Their behavior is protected by HR and when reported we are told, "That's just the way he is, he's actually better than he used to be. Unsafe practices when providing subject care...staff instructed and not given time to change gloves or wash hands, even with sanitizer between subjects. Other violations exist in the department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the staff doing the work, won't be long before you actually have legal action for the hostile work environment created by the threats and yelling in the workplace.

    I worked at Medpace full-time

    Pros

    None
    I guess if you like your colleagues then that is the only positive.

    Cons

    Non-director level positions don't have a private office, set-up is cubicles, there is no privacy as everyone can hear your conversations. There's micromanagement, the directors don't know how to delegate. They need to learn how to delegate the workload. HR does not allow for the employees to socialize so be very careful what you say and watch your behavior. You can be terminated without any reason.

    There are better companies than this one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to delegate the workload. Follow the employee's job description. There is no training in place in any department. Need to learn how to implement team building.

    Pros

    Money is good but not better than similar companies. Lots of hardworking people

    Cons

    Company run on fear. Upper Management is weak and barely credible. Poor respect for employees. Lots of workers are unhappy and scared and are always looking for other opportunities. I want to go too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some training how to mange people or do something else.

    I have been working at Medpace

    Pros

    The salary is competitive. There is a gym onsite.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lot of politics involved in performance reviews, as well as corresponding merit increases and bonuses. It is very difficult to move up. Employees are not generally treated well, and are fearful to make a decision. Management is very controlling, and proud of that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't continue the culture of fear.

    Pros

    Good place for someone who wants to learn clinical trials.

    Cons

    Management does not recognize or value talent. Management treats you in a manner where you should be seen and not heard. Too many silos in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to learn inclusiveness and appreciate ALL employees and treat them with respect and as a valuable resource to their success.
