    Pros

    Flexible hours, free lunch, well rewarded over time (yearly bonuses and merit raises, stock options for higher level employees), free fitness classes and gym. Very little micromanaging, most managers empathetic, good vacation time and sick time.

    Cons

    Upper management seems disorganized, very little training for managers on how to manage people, inconsistent policies, no ability to work from home for most positions, benefits are slightly expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Add in more levels so that long-standing employees have somewhere to go. Add in another vacation tier at 10 years, consider work from home possibilities.

    Pros

    Robust training program and friendly environment. Exceptional support from CRA managers and training department

    Cons

    Low salary (below industry standard for the area) and expensive health insurance. Training program may be a bit too accelerated and rushed for individuals without a clinical research background.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider the use of incentives and retention bonuses to keep talent and offer more competetitive salaries. Also, please try to allocate newly trained CRAs to projects soon after training completion.

    Pros

    Medpace offers a client-centric approach and provides their staff with the resources and tools to get the job done. While some CROs focus on adhering to budget, Medpace allows their teams to focus on quality by separating the project team from the finances. Teams have the ability to focus on a quality product for their client.

    Medpace offers employment opportunities and paid internships for individuals just out of college and searching for an opportunity to learn the pharmaceutical research business.

    Cons

    Medical benefits could be better- high premiums and copays.

    Pros

    There are a lot of departments with flexibility to move within the company, both growth or lateral. Many positions allow autonomy while still being a part of a team.

    Cons

    The medical benefits are a little pricey compared to other companies. As with any corporate company, getting raised or promotions can be difficult for some the way the current system is set up.

    Advice to Management

    Compare employees across their position rather than by supervisor.

    Pros

    Excellent management; - highly qualified and leadership is transparent. Management and senior management establish well defined goals and communicate them clearly to their employees making advancement reasonably attainable. Laid back yet professional atmosphere makes Medpace a comfortable place to work. Everyone cooperates and works well with each other. Hours are flexible; work/life balance is reasonable.

    Cons

    Pay is average for support functions within the company. Minimal training for support functions. Most training is "on-the-job." Software is developed in-house; lack of opportunity to work with popular, more advanced software.
