Former Employee - Senior Clinical Research Associate in Waltham, MA

I worked at PAREXEL full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Worked for PXL for a few years, good opportunity if you come in but its hard to progress and youd get further if you left the job and came back but nothing abnormal compared to other CRO's.

Cons

The work life balance could be improved abit further, and career progression.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look after your staff!

    I have been working at PAREXEL full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules
    Most employees work from home
    401k & company match
    Autonomy, self-reliance, self-sufficiency
    Excellent pay if you negotiate up front for it
    Adequate benefits
    Company likes to promote from within and I was told there is ample growth opportunities if you work HARD!

    Cons

    Global organization which can easily make you feel like just another number
    Training is very inadequate across the majority of departments
    Direction comes from all across the board so you will always wonder “Who is my Manager?”
    Overworked staff + burnout = high turnover
    Bureaucratic
    Political games
    Silo Mentality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The higher ups need to follow through with the suggestions and ideas of the worker bees that are doing the work each day. We know what we are talking about better than you do because you don’t actually do the work. Also quickly reward and promote employees that work HARD. Get rid of (FIRE) those that are just dead weight and only want to collect a paycheck. You know who they are...

    Offer better training opportunities to those that want to be promoted.

    Within my dept, the management team communicates openly at all levels. PAREXEL is a leader in innovation and adaptability to the changing environment. Executive leadership consistently demonstrates their desire and willingness to hear the ideas of those doing the work. Hard work and achievements are recognized.

    Companies can always improve... PAREXEL is no different.
