    I have been working at Cetero Research

    Pros

    If it is you first job in clinical research and you have no choice except for this company, don't hesitate. However, having other options do hesitate.

    Cons

    Managerial structure is very poor.
    Absolute mess in the way how they run their business and lots of people who work their have no idea what they do and what clinical research is.
    Training department is absent and nobody updates employees about latest news in the clinical research world, new FDA guidelines and so forth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strong organisation and management structure can remedy the situation.

    I worked at Cetero Research

    Pros

    Small company so as an entry level employee you are exposed to a lot and given a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    Because it is a smaller company, there was no formal mentoring or leadership program, which entry level employees could have really benefited from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline processes in the clinical sites to make them more efficient and effective; enforce stricter guidelines to avoid laboratory errors.

    It's a good place to gain experience for an entry-level person

    I worked at Cetero Research

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good. They were better before the company merged with many other smaller companies as a part of an acquisition. Overall, it's a great place to use as a stepping stone if you're interested in working in the pharmaceutical industry. This is because you work with numerous clients - big name pharmaceutical companies and smaller start-up companies, as well as the occasional device company.

    Cons

    If you're looking for career advancement, you'll find it tough to come by at this company. You can certainly move up the "ladder," but that ladder doesn't go very far. Many of the employees are incredibly overworked and asked to sacrifice holidays and work late into the evening at the expense of their own personal time. Compensation for doings so is difficult to come by as well. Unless you're an hourly employee, you will receive little if any monetary compensation for work beyond a 40 hour work week, which is quite common there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management requires more experience, particularly research experience (where appropriate) and experience in staff-communication. Management would serve staff well to practice some discretion; all too often,it was apparent that confidentiality was compromised. This is probably due to a somewhat high school-like environment: many long term employees were clearly involved in social cliques, which would occasionally compromise their professional integrity.

    One last piece of advice: Hire people with scientific experience. Working with and training those without it, even if they had some capacity to do it, was difficult. They seemed to be the rate-limiting factors whenever difficulty arose and others with the appropriate backgrounds were left to pick up the pieces.
