    Red Flags Everywhere

    Clinical Research Associate I (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsCompensation and benefits are good. If you work at the office there is a nice workout facility and free lunch. After training you are able to work from home.

    ConsThe Manager's are not flexible, do not give honest feedback, talk negatively about employees/ position/ company, and expectations are unclear and be prepared to work long hours. Cannot bring new thoughts or ideas- they don't care to change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone of the Managers are on the same page. One will tell you one thing and another will tell you something completely different.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not Truly Global

    CRA (Former Employee)

    ProsGood upcoming brand in the clinical research landscape, Solid growth over the last many years, expertise in clinical development. Good Salary and office infrastructure. Excellent local leadership in India when I joined.

    ConsSevere lack of communication with associates outside US, no global leadership, knee jerk reaction company with ever changing policies, severe lack of vision, lack of reward for foreign workers, run like a family business by CEO and Head of Clinical Operations - Almost like an anarchy, Lot of politics and back biting, especially between MRL laboratory and CRO.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEngage the foreign workers more, you need them to survive in your tough business or else shut your business outside US.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Medpace - A place to start....

    Clinical Research Associate III (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsWell regarded in the industry, willing to take on new hires with little to no experience. Excellent training program. Multiple protocols to work on.

    ConsLarge variation in management styles and expectations. Inconsistent treatment of employees from managers and different departments. Lack of confidence or job security is a common theme among many employees of the clinical operations department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecome standardized and fair in the treatment of employees. Be respectful of employees and do not treat employees as if they are trying to scam the systems in place if they have made an honest mistake. Support and back employees in difficult situations.

    Great people, poor work/life balance

    CRA (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsGreat training for CRAs, very structured

    ConsPay is much lower than industry standard for regular FTE, added on the expectation to work 60+hrs a week. A very strict non-compete agreement keeps employees from leaving

    Advice to Senior ManagementMost employees are not willing to devote their entire life to working for a company, especially for low pay. Focus on work/life balance rather than burn out your employees

    Statistical Analyst (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsSmart people, flexible schedule, nice coworkers

    ConsVery little room for advancement

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company would grow if people were moved into positions that exploited their strengths.

    Medpace employees are expected to develop experience in their field quickly and through their own efforts.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsYoung workforce. Fast-paced environment. New facilities. Free lunches. 3-weeks vacation starting. Exercise facility onsite.

    ConsNo training offered (experience needed or developed individually). Roles not fully fleshed-out. Develop quickly or leave.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement staff needs to rotate. Too many titles created beacause no more room in managment. Learn proper management styles.

    Good lab to work for

    Tech (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsLab Supervisor is very knowledgable and very supportive of the techs.Always there to help. She is very professional when dealing with the more "difficult" employees.

    ConsLong hours somedays. Would be nice to be paid hourly instead of salaried.Lab Director is non existent. Lab is not as "important" as the CRO.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLab Supervisor needs additional. Would be nice if upper management listened to her recommendations. She encourages independence but is always there if needed.

    Medpace is a good place to learn about pharmaceutical research.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat salary and benefits package.
    It is a good place to learn about phamaceutical research. It is a good place to develop lab skills.
    Not having to work on holidays is great for lab workers.

    ConsI work in the lab and the hours can be long. You have to stay until all the work is done.
    The micromanagement is stressful, you are questioned about your work and why you do it the way you do.
    Manager is condescending and talks "down" to employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer some management training classes so managers know how to interact with employees without micromanaging. Being a good manager is not about reminding people you are the boss.
    The social events are a great way to meet people from other departments and learn about what other kinds of work are done at the company.

    Empty Promises and Management Who Do Not Know How to Run a Business

    Project Assistant (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsFun work environment that enables productivity, creativity, and individual and team success. Competitive salary and benefits. Fitness center is free to use.

    ConsEmpty Promises and Management Who Do Not Know How to Run a Business

    Managers are doctors who micromanage and have control issues but do not know how to make smart business decisions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people who know how to manage. You are great at being research professionals and knowledgeable doctors in drug development. However you do not know how to manage or keep employees happy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
