    I have been working at Celerion full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very family oriented culture, lots of flexibility with work-from-home & telecommuting opportunities. Lots of opportunities to work with different companies, from small biotechs to large Pharma, in various therapeutic areas.

    Cons

    Low starting salaries with increases that do no keep up with inflation. No financial recognition for hard work. Hard to get promited. Too many people with admin director titles that should have never been promoted to those positions but Sr. management has policy of never demoting anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate mid managers in Sr. director & director positions to ensure titles truly reflect competence - both administrative and scientific.

    I have been working at Celerion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Place is not like any other place I've worked at. I work in the Customer service dept as a Study Participant Rep. The managers are very good at there job and take it seriously. The job is not stressful and for the pay is well worth the work load. There are those days when the job get hard, but other than that good work environment.

    Cons

    Resources are nothing compared to my previous jobs, cubicles are too small and chairs need to be replaced. Computer software is out of date, but everything is there to get the job done.

    I worked at Celerion part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Experience. Company knows how to do procedures correctly and follow FDA, GCP, SOP's.

    Cons

    Office drama. Though true everywhere, it seemed more so with this company. Some allegiances are questioned, especially participants word over employee.

    Advice to Management

    More hands on. Clinic management is hardly seen. Attention to employee needs, especially in regards to families and time-off.
