Pros

Good pay rate, opportunities to work remotely, depending on client decent management and work conditions. Merge with PRA may be beneficial.

Cons

Poor pay raises, no bonus potential, no.minimal 401k match, expensive benefits, management doesn't always let you know what is going on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication is the key. Good, bad, or indifferent let people know what is going on.

    I worked at ReSearch Pharmaceutical Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Over many years, RPS was a proven performance corporation with some truly talented employees.

    Cons

    No path for personal advancement. Management positions were given to many without proven managerial experience and social skills. Politics strongly controlled promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The desire to quickly expand Global services and the push to take the company public is where this employee owned company lost control of it's destiny.
    Same old story in the end; top management benefited and the house of cards fell.

    Pros

    The pay is what you would expect of a contracted position but you have full benefits

    Cons

    RPS is a glorified contracting agency. If you have issues with your employer you are directed to speak with your RPS manager instead of the company you work for. Your RPS manager isn't going to stand up for you to the company you work for because they don't want to hurt their relationship and the Pharma giant to start using another supplier. There is no one watching out for you.

    Do NOT let them sell "the bench" to you. It does no exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at your turn over rates. They are high because your employees are getting trampled on by the companies you farm them out to. Stand up for your employees and they will be loyal to you.
