Need for transparency, better talent retention policies, lean management approach

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

Pros"Brand Name Recognition" CRO
Large number of resources
Opportunities exist for exposure to diverse array of projects and work
There are some truly intelligent people to work with

ConsToo large of a CRO that change often comes slowly
Divisions lack coherent and consistent communication and resource sharing model
Management sometimes rewards tenure over actual ability or skill set
There exists dead weight at various levels that should be exposed

Advice to Senior ManagementBecome more transparent and involved in the ground level discussions of performance because this is a knowledge based service product we're delivering. Reward loyalty and retain talent via curated vertical pathway, career development via conferences and additional training /education, and recognize individuals who should be managing/mentoring people with those who definitely should not.
