I worked at PAREXEL full-time

Pros

None, it was a terrible experiment that I am sorry I tried. The company hired me to do one job, but from day one changed my manager and then demoted me to a lower level job I was way overqualified for. For your sanity, you should never work at Parexel. I am so happy I got away when I got a chance!

Cons

Everything. Antiquated clinical research processes, inadequate training, not using employees for the positions they were hired for, created hostile environment between teams and management.

    I have been working at PAREXEL full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The heads of global data operations, global statistics, and NA biostatistics are awesome. There are great people in biostats and SAS programming, they pick up the tabs for errors passed down by data management. Most project teams are great, except for some DOLs.

    Cons

    Bunch of I-3 contaminated directors have poisoned the environment. They suck up to their bosses and trashes whoever they can, play politics behind doors, and will stab you from behind. They have no understanding of the technical work and what blinding means. Some of them are outright rude, contentious and bullies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire any I-3 refugees, they are all toxic.

    I worked at PAREXEL full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Parexel fosters a very professional environment with a talented and friendly management staff. The career opportunities are immense and most employees are very well compensated for their efforts.

    Cons

    You have to be prepared to work very hard to excell. Most upper level employees put in well north of 40 hours per week, they are still in the process of expanding and probably need to hire more people to balance everyone's workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and don't be afraid to promote from within,
