    Pros

    Company has good benefits which I believe to be above industry standards.

    Cons

    There are great benefits that are above industry standards but compensation is probably on lower end of the spectrum for the industry. It's hard to get promoted and takes a long time to move forward.

    Pros

    The health benefits are really good, good working relationships with my fellow CRAs. Can't say the same for my CRAM - not personable, never listens.

    Cons

    Way to many demands on CRAs. Time lines are tighter, days on site have have gone up a half day, which really means another day. No work / life balance, yet the "company" uses that as a selling point.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees are saying instead of wondering why your really good, talented CRAs are leaving. Then do something positive.
