    I have been working at BioClinica full-time

    Pros

    - public company with 500 employees makes you feel like your contributions can really affect the bottom line
    - most products are technologically ahead of competitors offerings, allowing for great growth potential
    - 30 total days off per year is well above average in US (9 holidays + 21 vacation/sick days)
    - Strong teams and sense of teamwork in most areas I have seen
    - Open to new product lines and market areas
    - The pharma/clinical community has a generally high level of respect for BioClinica products

    Cons

    - Geographic diversity (Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle, New London, Lyon France, Leiden Netherlands) means spreading out a small work force
    - Management tends to be conservative with its finances

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend aggressively to stay ahead of the competition and focus on the many technology gaps that still exist in the clinical environment

    I have been working at BioClinica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very Flexible schedule atleast 1 day a week work from home will allow more if needed, Knowledgeable staff co-workers always willing to lend a helping hand. Great Vacation, Everyone is very personable and generally pleasant to work with

    Cons

    Too much middle management , Say they allow career growth but never happens , dont assume that everyone wants to stay in the same position until they retire., If you want a promotion you have to apply via website unless you are a manager , Director or VP. A little Clicky, Low Pay and Benefits are a bit high . Company used to have quarterly update meetings to keeep staff posted on the profits and whether goals were being met and new buisiness

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont wait until an employee hands in there resignation to inquire 'What can we do to keep you ?". Management and HR should look to promote from within. There should be a clear path for career growth set by management and followed. Being busy shouldn't be an acceptable reason why some great workers are waiting on the bench for you to take notice of their talents

    Pros

    Small company - politics not a huge issue. You know you're colleagues. Access to directors and senior management.

    Cons

    Like with any small company, it grows and slowly begins to sell out trying to gain the big clients etc...

    I worked at BioClinica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good product line potential. Good looking presence in the market. Decent compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability at senior levels. Tendency to over promise on what can be delivered. Rather impersonal senior management. No real commitment to employee retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    View you employees as the individuals they are. Be direct/transparent in critiquing employees. Adopt a culture of retaining and developing employees rather than using them as a means to an end.

    Shiny Ball Syndrome

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Project Manager  in  Audubon, PA
    Current Employee - Project Manager in Audubon, PA

    I have been working at BioClinica full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most of the people who work here are good people, they're flexible and easy to work with - there are the occasional 'bad apples' but, unless they're in positions of power/control, you can work around them.
    There is, for the most part, a flexible working attitude - an hour less one day can be made up by doing an extra hour the next day.

    Cons

    Management is not really in touch with the workers. They have a tendency to run after the next big shiny ball before they've finished playing with the current one.
    Quick to react negatively to market conditions - lower levels feel the brunt first, upper management get hired shortly after layoffs.
    It is a 'who you know' company rather than a 'what you know' one.
    Low salaries for the industry/experience - many people use it as stepping-stone company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain a focus, set clear and precise objectives, listen to your employees a little harder.
