    Pros

    Status in the Industry: Acurian is the market leader in global patient recruitment and retention and continues to grow. Work Environment: When I first came to work at Acurian, being my first desk job, I expected a stuffy office environment, but I was way off-base. The environment is laid back but hard working. Everyone is extremely friendly and the management is helpful and allows you the freedom to handle your responsibilities without being overbearing. Interviewing/Hiring: Management does an extremely diligent job during the hiring process, so you won't find anyone simply filling a seat. I had a phone interview followed by a face-to-face interview with my direct report and the CEO. The wait following the interviews was longer than I expected, but well worth it. Communication: Communication between departments is open and gathering the necessary information for a project from someone else typically takes minutes rather than hours or days. I am constantly challenged on a daily basis and continuously learning more about the industry and my role with the company is always expanding. Benefits: All full time employees receive 17 PTO days plus 9 paid holidays and 1 floating holiday. Full health, dental, and vision coverage. All full time employees are bonus eligible annually based on performance.

    Cons

    Health Benefits: While it is comprehensive, the network of specialists is fairly limited.

    Advice to Management

    Do not change the way you manage the office. Continue to trust your employees to make the right decisions without micromanaging them and they will continue to reward you with hard work and dedication.
