Good Global Company, but Data Management is holding Study Team back

Clinical Data Manager (Former Employee) Florham Park, NJ

ProsLarge Global company
Very interesting pipeline, particularly with regard to Oncology Translational Medicine
Very intelligent and competent scientific & clinical group
Team members (on studies I worked) were professional and motivated to do their best

ConsFor Oncology Data Management -
lack of DM metrics and thereby accountability. This leads to a culture of who can point the finger the fastest opposed to accepting responsibility for errors and creating processes or improvements to prevent them in the future.
Accepted DM culture of doing least amount of work for most amount of money, i.e. abundant and blatant internet surfing and Facebooking while at work.
Completely outsourced model (starting to come back in-house) and high on-site contractor use. This is not necessarily a con if appropriate metrics are in place, but since not, fosters continuous blame to CROs and contractors opposed to process correction and thereby negating vendor relationships as well as producing a high turn-over rate of contractors.

Advice to Senior ManagementReward productivity, fire those who want to surf the internet all day.
Create / Implement department metrics to assess productivity of individuals. This will also reshape blame culture to one of accountability.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
