Use for CRO industry experience, then move to higher paying CRO.

Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)
Wilmington, NC

ProsSome training programs are high quality
CRO experience
HIghing preferences are low - easy to get in the door

ConsManagement is comprised of good ole boys club.
Initiatives are rarely tested - throw something against the wall and hope it sticks.
Technology is basic - company is ran off of personal spreadsheets
HR department is nearly incompetent - bulling, intimidation are means of managing - consistent policies are not existent
Project Managers are worst in the industry
In-fighting between departments and politics

Advice to Senior ManagementBring in new thinking and trained department heads that can deliver on quality.
Develop tools or policies that are global in nature
Start over with the HR department

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
