    I have been working at PAREXEL full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Nice Weather

    - Cheap Alcohol...the company drives you too it!!

    Cons

    - Non existent line managers who don't care about their employees

    - Line Management promote people based on how long they spend in the company rather than how productive they are at their job

    - Line Management are out of touch with people who perform the tasks

    - Line Management do not have a career plan for their employees

    - Line Management do not understand many of the systems and tools

    - Line Management focus too much on 'tick box' style management ensuring they complete their task while ignoring work related problems

    - Snr. Line Management use 'Excel trackers' as a means of tracking all studies for PAREXEL which is all manual. No database to store such information.

    - Line Management offer no monthly meetings on the outlook of the company as a whole

    - No support network (HR or Line Management)

    - SOP's and WI's require a degree in themselves to translate or understand

    - Lack of training especially for study start up teams

    - Financial department dealing with CIS' or CO's are a mess and require leadership

    - Soft skills seriously need to be addressed. No interpersonal skills or negotiation techniques evident. If plan A does not work then there is complete panic.

    - Teams do not take accountability for work completed

    - Too many work arounds for every task

    - SME's identified are not qualified to offer advice due to lack of knowledge

    - NO RECOGNITION or any extra work performed to either improve a process or deliverable

    - Expectation of working 14hr days is not frowned upon as a result of overloading with work

    - NO BONUS

    - Offices are smelly, poor office equipment, laptops are ancient and far too slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No point offering any advice as they don't listen.

    The 'Powers' that be should get rid of the driftwood style managers in the Berlin office. Bring on board productive and energetic style managers. These managers should come from non-PAREXEL infected companies. These top CRO companies offer the training, support and career progression opportunities which PAREXEL fair to deliver.
    I do not see a positive future for PAREXEL if it continues with the current pathetic batch of managers. They are simply not good enough and refuse to move forward with technology to compete with the top CRO or Pharma companies.
