No career growth, a good job to get experience and then move on

I have been working at PAREXEL

Pros

There is a great work/life balance. I have never had any trouble getting days off, even when I requested at the last minute. Line Managers are very flexible.

In an economy full of lay offs, we had very few.

Cons

No career growth at all and minimal raises. You don't get promoted or bonuses for going above and beyond. The person that plays around all the time will make the same money as the person that gives 110% and works overtime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote people and give raises. There is so much turnover because people aren't promoted when they do good work. People stay in the same job positions with close to the same salary for years and years.

    I worked at PAREXEL

    Pros

    PAREXEL has competitive pay for a Clincal Research Associate and also has great benefits. The company believes in educating their employees through trainings and refresher courses.

    Cons

    I would have like for PAREXEL to have their CRAs become more regional in their travel. I was decentralized out of TX and managed mostly east coast sites; extremely exhausting!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really did not have an issue with the management style at PAREXEL. My manager was fair and very knowledgeable in the area of clinical research.

    Pros

    Seems very flexible and benefits are decent

    Cons

    Management is out of touch. Vertical hierarchy. If you don't make friends quick with the right people...watch out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the talent you have before they leave.
