    Toxic, incompetent, dull. There are better places to work.

    I have been working at PAREXEL full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits, some flexibility around work hours and working from home (varies by individual manager though, no consistent policy).

    Cons

    Director/VP level leadership generally poor. For the most part folks at that level are far from impressive. There are exceptions, but they're few and far between. Predominantly people at that level are there through having hung around for years rather than having been recruited or promoted for genuine merit or talent. Heaven help you if you dare to disagree with people at this level, they're like petulant children that can't tolerate constructive critiques or even suggestions. Poor communication regarding where your immediate department is heading. Grotesquely dated and bureaucratic, nasty politics. Some highly toxic individuals who have mastered "kiss up, kick down" to the level of an art form. Truly shocked at who stays and who gets pushed out. They seem convinced employees are simply cogs in a machine; there's a relentless race to the bottom via a push to offshore work rather than employing bright people who can innovate to achieve sustainable improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Oh where to begin. In fact, I don't think I will, I have zero belief you would follow it.

    I have been working at PAREXEL full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Generous vacation (3 weeks to start) -Relatively flexible work schedule. -Very nice co-workers. There is some very good talent here. -Exposure to new technology (though training is usually hands-on, on-the-fly).

    Cons

    -Difficult to get external training. -Raises average about 2-3% for workers. Management is a very different story. Very much a have and have-not situation. It pays to be in the clique. -Bonus plan not paid out over the last two years -Despite the propaganda, upper management sees lower level people as 'resources' not valued and skilled personnel.

    Advice to Management

    -Reward innovative and hard-working employees in an equitable manner.
