    Old story: small company purchased by global one; management loses sight of important things..

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsCasual work environment, no dress code, friendly and intelligent coworkers, freedom to manage own workload, collaboration generally encouraged.

    ConsOppressive, paranoid atmosphere created by CEO and senior management, the manner in which kowtowing to management was quite blatantly proposed as the thing to do, workers not respected as the seasoned, experienced professionals they are, lots and lots of talk by middle managers and very little effort to address problems, company underpaying and being unconcerned about it while expecting the very best work at all times, the age-old tension between quality and quantity, and quantity (fast-throughput) winning every time despite quality always being the wisest way to go, ultimately.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMeet with experienced, long-time employees, even if they aren't managers, and find out what frustrates them on a daily basis. Then, instead of simply relaying the findings to your under managers, do some research and put an improvement plan in place yourself, and set your manager to following through with it with deadlines and accountability.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worldwide Clinical Trials - A CRO in Need of Repair

    Senior Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsSmart people in the Medical and Scientic Affairs

    ConsAbsolutely no central leadership and there is well known infighting with the founders that serve to divide the company. Additionally, at the senior level there is very little transparency and honesty. It is abundantly clear that all executives are focused on the 'sell of the company'. This post is in no way that of a disgruntled employee - it is simply the well known current state of affairs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a nice place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Morrisville, NC

    ProsCasual dress code, supportive upper middle management (trips to baseball games, pizza lunches, company picnics etc), flexible working hours and various other initiatives

    ConsWCT is jam-packed with egomaniacs. Lower middle management don't have are unqualified and don't seem to have a clue what they are doing. Studies are poorly run, so much so that the company gets very little in the way of repeat business

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire properly qualified individuals to do the jobs (i.e. those with degrees AND experience, not your friends or people who say yes to everything.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Learning experience - learning what you need in management/mentors and realizing there are none at the WCT

    Project Director (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsThe people that are not management

    ConsUnrealistic deadlines, over-promises by business development and management, not enough resources

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand the issues before sentencing. Practice what you preach - work in all of the jobs/roles now, not 9 years ago when the company was small

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
