Pros

Get to work from home a couple of days a week.

Cons

Employees are overworked and underpaid.

Advice to Management

You can't expect your employees to work 80hrs a week and then tell them they need to do more to get promoted.

    Pros

    The usual perks of working for a large company, discount on cell phone bill, show your badge to get 10-20% off at area businesses etc. Healthcare benefits were decent, flexible schedule if you didn't abuse it.

    Cons

    High employee turnover due to burn out, no work life balance, sink or swim attitude. Are you surprised though? It's just like every other CRO out there. Management desperation for keeping the workforce supplied is disguised as "opportunity" and "promotion"...people who you question how they ever became a CDA II, let alone a CDA III are pushed into DM positions, just because they are desperate for warm bodies. They don't even do the LAP program anymore, they just check to make sure you have a pulse and slap a DM I title on you and throw the last casualty's studies at you plus a couple of new studies coming down the pike, just for good measure. The Line Managers (also the study managers on the projects) will throw you under the bus just to cover their own you know what. Also, super strict billing....(not anything new really)...you know those marathon 3 hour study team meetings? You can only bill 15 minutes to the meeting, but don't you dare not pay 100% attention through out the whole meeting, you'll get screamed at for it by your LM/Study Manager for being caught with your pants down because you were listening with half an ear why you desperately try to hammer out deliverables on your other 4 studies.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking about the bottom line and think more about the people who make that bottom line happen. You have hardworking, talented people dropping off like flies, consider cutting back on executive bonuses and hiring MORE talent to share the workload.
