    A good place to start your pharma career

    Vice President (Former Employee) Waltham, MA

    ProsSuperb place to start in the pharma industry as there are lots of highly competent and knowledgeable people from who you can learn alot from. What you learn at PAREXEL will make you very valuable at pharma and biotech companies, especially locally.

    ConsThere is alot of turnover because clients are always cherry-picking staff. There are also alot of "silos" so departments aren't always working together but often they compete against each other instead.

    Advice to Senior Managementbetter incentives and rewards for good performance needed. Also better support for staff under alot of pressure to perform for clients.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
