    Do Not work in the Recruitment Department if you want to be treated like a valuable human being.

    Pros

    No pros at all for the Subject Recruitment department.

    Cons

    Management is not willing to listen to the employee and they play favorites with employees. The recruitment department requires a doctor's note for missing one day, but this is not a company policy, just that one department and when asked why, they claim it has "always been that way" rather than giving a legitimate reason. Thankfully I never had to miss a day. And don't even dare missing a day due to children or family reasons as only the head of that department holds that special privilege. Gossip is a big issue here as well. It was difficult to get any work done with all of the drama propagated by the managers themselves. Awful work environment, I cringe every time I think about my time spent working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the management you have now in that department.

    Pros

    Nice facility with good sized meeting rooms.

    Cons

    Inconsistent rules with policies loosely enforced at the San Antonio Clinic. HR Management in Austin is horrible. They do not care the least bit about the SA Clinic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more of the employees, especially in the San Antonio Clinic. Employees should be heard and appreciated.

    Pros

    The only good part of working for this company is the feeling that in some small measure you are helping people make extra money. They also let you know from the moment you are hired that there will be no room for advancement.

    Cons

    The supervisors set your schedule and do not allow for any changes. You are encouraged to get people to lie about their medical histories in order to qualify for studies. They fire employees for being sick, and threaten them with unemployment if they have major health issues. The supervisors promise bonuses for meeting quotas and then squirm out of actually paying out bonuses. The only workers who get any consideration are the ones who go out and party with the supervisors after work hours. There is no congratulations given when numbers are met, but lots of stress put on employees to meet numbers. If you have any moral issues with offering dangerous drugs to uneducated people then this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps you should question why the recruiting office has such high turnover. Perhaps encouraging employees with bonuses, some form of congratulations when numbers are met, and not allowing supervisors to only promote their friends would lead to a higher retention of qualified employees.

    Pros

    Their systems were relatively easy to learn. Questions and support were given quickly by members of the team.

    Cons

    I thought this was going to be a great fit, as I gave 300% on the project and really enjoyed the work. Out of the blue, I was let go. To this day, I still have no clue why. I found out the worst way, by the CRA who was replacing me telling me she was taking all of my sites. When I inquired with management what was going on, I was ignored for days until I received the formal business letter stating they were terminating me. So much for giving 300% to a project! It would have been nice to know why they were letting me go, or better yet, to know what I could have done to have perhaps corrected the issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For starters, perhaps let someone know why they're being let go. Better yet, perhaps let them know if you have issues so they can be corrected before it even gets this far. This is the reason why employees aren't loyal to employers!

    Pros

    excellent benefits kick in at six months

    Cons

    in a hard-to-get part of town making traffic a problem no matter what; weak communication from trainers, bloated information processes making it difficult to filter the junk out so you can find important information

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    realize that for every computer process, there are at least three ways to do it; realize that people who are different add to the diversity of the company...in a good way; just be honest and do the right thing instead of hiding behind a wall...sometimes being a manager or trainer is hard work.
