    I have been working at Premier Research as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Learn a lot about business skills, how to write "Business English". A lot of great people here who are all very nice to me.

    Cons

    There is no perfect places. I think you should judge people based on their performance... not seniority level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise is the same as the cons, but it's difficult because you can only oversee this much... I think an implementation of judging people by their accomplishment is better than seniority.

    I worked at Premier Research

    Pros

    Good work environement and good people to work with. Salaries and benefits compariable with the industry. Management at the Director and VP Level committed to the quality of the work and the employees.

    Cons

    Executive Management keeps decisions very close to the vest. New ownership reducing staff in waves creates an environment of uncertainty and distrust. Little communication about the direction of the company to the rank and file.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people know what's going on and the challenges facing the company and industry. Make up your mind and make the cuts and be done with it.

    I worked at Premier Research full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Easy management, great office, nice young people, good career opportunities and nice working hours in my case 11 to 7 PM. One day home office weekly.

    Cons

    Very specific experience which is not always applicable in the local labor market; payment could have been better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is in general doing a good job, keeping employees in the loop and being fair as long as fairness is possible being a manager on project based teams. There are not enough activities boosting the team spirit so go and organize them.

    I worked at Premier Research full-time

    Pros

    Line Manger support great
    Decent benefits
    Highly professional environment
    Great educational reimbursement program
    Highly quality-oriented more than quantity-oriented which is rare

    Cons

    Not a lot of top down communication, CRAs left in the dark most of the time
    CRAs are treated like red-headed step children during client meetings, basically told to shut their mouths so they don't embarasss the company, even though they are the bread-winners

    Pros

    Working people are great; communication between manager and employee are good; Number of PTO and holiday are better than others.

    Cons

    Where the company will go? No one knows. It seems a big change will be present to us from the new CEO.
