I have been working at PAREXEL

Pros

Fair line to middle management, solid on-the-job training, interesting projects, global reach, blue chip clients, good team climate, adequate compensation

Cons

Top management and Sales agree on unachievable contract terms, bad resource planning leads to staff burn-out, outdated technology, too little investment in toolchain development, too sparse performance evaluation, strategic partnership put too much strain

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Involve functional and team leads in bid defense and contract negotiation, plan resourcing in advance, invest in technology in-house and outsourcing.

    I worked at PAREXEL

    Pros

    Great people at numerous levels in the company. Most folks accessible to answer questions in virtually every operational department; which was good.

    Cons

    Long hours, tight deadlines, favoritism, no line management support, inexperienced line managers, lacking support from senior management with respect to tight deadlines and long hours. Job demanded working into the night and almost every weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something about the perception that exists that Parexel does not care about the sacrifice their employees are making by having to work upwards of 60 hrs/week on a regular basis.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at PAREXEL

    Pros

    Ability to work independently in my role. The vacation package and health package are very good much better then other companies.

    Cons

    Compensation for same positions elsewhere are far less. This is talking about my position the ceiling for growth has stopped to due not being at the head quarter in Boston.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to promote with in rather then bring in someone from outside. Even though we are not at the Boston headquarters they should still look to advance all employees doing a good job in other Parexel locations.
