Great people and infrastructure but upper management is in a world all it's own

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

Pros

Highly motivated, dedicated and trained employee pool where teams really do work together to deliver. If you produce you can negotiate a positive situation for yourself. Hard work=Good rewards.

Cons

Overworked, under-resourced and top heavy so much so that eventually the hard work will no longer equate to good rewards as it will burn you out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If a manager raises a real issue that does not resonate with upper management, it goes no-where until the situation becomes so much of a problem UM has to make it their number one priority. Then they put their top managers/directors on the problem which is just comical, when perhaps they should go to the front line and get to the solution more efficiently, clearly and addressed properly. Since each group is an independant fifedom, you must play nice with the king.

    I worked at PAREXEL

    Pros

    Great people, lots of opportunity to advance

    Cons

    They seem to bid very low on projects and then scramble to find resources and overwork teams in the process. Lots of disorganization in project management between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees more and your stockholders less.
