Former Employee - Clinical Operations Associate in San Francisco, CA

Pros

Friendly and helpful colleagues, good benefits, good place to enter into clinical industry for a couple of years to develop skill set to be eligible to work as a sponsor clinical trial assistant--not clinical research associate

Cons

Very little room for advancement, salaries way below industry standard, incredibly high turnover in Operations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Restructure the Operations roles to add more value, focus more on employee retention over immediate bottom line

Disapproves of CEO

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    I really liked the people I worked with, and I really liked the content of the work I was allowed to do. Fascinating business model.

    Cons

    Lack of resources. Big separation between management and where the work was performed. Lack of career growth. Questionable management competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better funding and more experienced management. The company is chronically under resourced, particularly in sales. The senior leadership is inexperienced at running and growing a profitable enterprise.

    Pros

    Good place for finding biotech work right out of college. The company offers very flexible hours to accommodate any schedule.

    Cons

    The pay is probably the worst aspect of this job. Raises are pretty much non-existent. The only possible way to gain a promotion is to wait for someone to quit, get laid off, or fired and then it is a rush between all employees to get that position.

    There is minimal training!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the employees more. This would be very beneficial to the company and to all employees. Don't focus on one study for months at a time only to let the others falter and t hen wonder why you have to play catch-up every other month.
