Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Waltham, MA
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Waltham, MA

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Ability to expand knowledge about Pharma/Biopharma field

    Cons

    Way too many managers, micro managed, management has limited reimbursement knowledge and no actual hands on insurance billing and appeals processes. Management hires temps to work, no accountability, management will work the employees worse then a sweat shop. No recodnition of employees accomplishments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is not open to advice.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
