Pros

Exciting projects across a wide variety of therapy areas and sponsors

Cons

People are not valued as they were 5 years ago. Having been a global department head, my compensation was okay but generally the company has become very tight fisted in rewarding its people.

Advice to Management

Innovation and quality suffer when you focus too much on margins and don't value your people

    Pros

    cafeteria, nice size cube, company outings, free cupcakes for birthday months.

    Cons

    underpaid, arbitrary office politics, unprofessional coworkers, heinously biased and unorganized HR staff - frankly there are other CRO oriented businesses much worth your time to seek employment with

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees with respect, not just to those who kiss your behind

    Pros

    I worked with smart, capable, helpful people. Pay was good.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was challenging. Work weeks of 55-70 hour/week were expected and necessary to keep up with the work.
