Pros

Great location in RTP, nice office space, good benefits, close to I-40, NC 54 and NC 55 and helpful HR department.

Cons

No formal policies or SOP's. Unfair treatment of employees. Constant disrespect among co-workers. Minimal praise, career advancement opportunities and compensation. Claims to be a flexible work environment but employees are expected to live and breathe their job. Unclear job descriptions. Clear division of labor between senior management and lower employees. Feel of entitlement among management team. Lack of communication. Unethical business practices. No distiniction between personal time off and sick time.

Advice to Management

Hire people who truly care about their employees and the greater good of the company. Treat all employees with respect. Develop formal policies, procedures, and SOP's. Communicate on a regular basis with the employees about all company happenings, small or large.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, responsive front line staff.

    Cons

    Senior management is indifferent to needs outside RTP. The Atlanta office is understaffed and undersupported, leading to bad customer service at CDC and a poor reputation for SciMetrika. Some SciMetrika staff push for contracted staff to solicit business regardless of the ethics and conflict of interest. Lip service to professional development but no opportunities for training or career paths within the company. Finally, there is no mechanism to handle employee problems with their CDC or SciMetrika supervisor. SciMetrika would rather drive away one good employee after another than address a continuing problem.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to spend more time in Atlanta to understand the challenges of supporting staff who are on-site at CDC. Soliciting business should be the responsibility of the full time SciMetrika staff that manage contracts not the staff who are contracted to provide services. Also, stop responding to negative reviews by asking staff to write good ones. Instead of telling people to come to the CEO with their problems, establish an HR that is empowered to deal with employee problems.
