    I worked at PAREXEL full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    No day is the same, lots of opportunity to learn, looks great on your CV as such a varied job role. The volunteers are lovely. Lots of opportunity for over time. The job will keep you fit (long hours on your feet - often for the whole shift which can vary from 7.5-15 hours).

    Cons

    It's very difficult to get a promotion, long hours - shifts can be 8+ days in a row and the night shifts are not optional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a bullying culture from some senior nurses/assistants to junior staff.
