    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Waltham, MA

    I have been working at PAREXEL full-time for 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.
