    I worked at Axio Research

    Pros

    great work life balance, good environment, good staring company. simply office policy. Managers are involved in projects, have some technical meetings

    Cons

    Relatively low payment, don't provide enough opportunity for self growing, job is not very technical. Do not have a good sponsorship for people who is seeking a work authorization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be more focusing on training the new associates. Give more support to the employees and develop a better and clearer career path

    I worked at Axio Research full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A few people are nice. That's about it.

    Cons

    * The management is abysmal. They provide no meaningful feedback and no direction. They gossip and speak poorly of employees behind their backs, creating a toxic environment.
    * The CEO makes snap judgements about people and holds onto them.
    * The compensation is way below average, especially for a for-profit company. I could see some of their salaries being on par with a nonprofit, but I've worked at nonprofits that payed better than Axio.
    * There is a high turnover because employees often dislike their work and they get too much of it.
    * The employees tend to form social cliques which can hinder communication and development of camaraderie.
    * The only real opportunities for advancement for biostatisticians is to become project managers and effectively abandon statistics. However, the biostatisticians barely end up doing any statistics anyway.
    * There is very little training. All of the biostatisticians and SAS programmers basically start as junior SAS programmers, regardless of their expertise, doing tedious review of output.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate. Provide ongoing feedback to employees. Train them. Engage them. Pay them better.

    I have been working at Axio Research full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Small company with lots of projects in medical research, especially clinical trials, and thus exposure to a lot of different disease areas and types of work. Flexible duties and methodologies. Good people. Collaborative group.

    Cons

    Multiple projects and multiple deadlines. Less than lackluster IT support. Lackluster CEO. Lack of planning and vision for future direction of company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the business you are in. Investigate. Plan. Strategy. Tactics.

    I worked at Axio Research full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    A few good hardworking people, but most seemed rather nonproductive, hiding in their offices.

    Cons

    Very surprised they are still in business. Losing accounts and struggling to get more. Job was grossly misrepresented on the interview. Underwent a big layoff about 6 months earlier due to lack of business and failed to inform potential candidates about that. Pay is low and not competitive with the industry. Very high turnover. Shabby office.

    Pros

    Really good people who care and believe in the work they are doing.

    Cons

    The IT department is badly broken both it the actual technology and more so the management. The current IT manager has no formal IT training, lacks vision and the ability to drive projects to completion. Some project sit for months or longer without any real progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The IT department can be fixed but only if the current manager is replaced with someone who understands what it takes to run an IT department.
