    Pros

    The company is growing so rapidly there is a lot of opportunity for the current staff. The employees are friendly and you also can't beat the perks at Medpace: free onsite gym, complimentary daily lunch, casual dress, and company bonus.

    Cons

    The company is growing rapidly, but it can take time to hire and train people, so a lot of employees can feel the stress and take on a large workload as we go through these growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Train your staff and delegate items to your team members.

    Pros

    Friendly, casual workplace. Company is dedicated to maintaining strong employees. Therefore, co-workers are dedicated and knowledgeable. Free lunch and company gym. Hires entry level employment, encourages promotion and employee growth.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a job where someone is there to hold your hand or give you special training, this is not the ideal environment for you. You should be motivated and display a good work ethic in order to succeed. This is a "pro" advantage to individuals of the right caliber.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower and reward hard-working employees. Maintain effective communication in order to achieve uniformity.

    Pros

    Medpace is very good at recognizing talent. If you work hard, it will be noticed and promotion/advancement opportunities will be knocking at your door. It is great to be part of the Medpace culture where employees are extremely hard-working, professional, communicative, team focused, and well respected by upper management.

    Cons

    Opportunity to telecommute would be a plus.

    Advice to Management

    The standardized evaluations/reviews in place provide an excellent opportunity for timely performance feedback - thank you!

    Pros

    Experts from all sides always available, devoted managers who work to ensure your success as a CRA, lower than industry-standard expected days on site per month, integrated and user-friendly systems including CTMS, efficient and progressive processes that evolve as does the industry

    Cons

    As managers we can work on further recognizing our outstanding and loyal employees - there are many!

    Pros

    They will train CRAs with no experience

    Cons

    The management sets you up to fail. They company doesn't pay up to industry standards. I left of my own accord and counted that as a victory because they fire people with little or no cause. They also burn you out with travel.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees when they say they are overwhelmed without holding it against them

    I have been working at Medpace full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, free lunch, well rewarded over time (yearly bonuses and merit raises, stock options for higher level employees), free fitness classes and gym. Very little micromanaging, most managers empathetic, good vacation time and sick time.

    Cons

    Upper management seems disorganized, very little training for managers on how to manage people, inconsistent policies, no ability to work from home for most positions, benefits are slightly expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Add in more levels so that long-standing employees have somewhere to go. Add in another vacation tier at 10 years, consider work from home possibilities.

    I have been working at Medpace full-time

    Pros

    Robust training program and friendly environment. Exceptional support from CRA managers and training department

    Cons

    Low salary (below industry standard for the area) and expensive health insurance. Training program may be a bit too accelerated and rushed for individuals without a clinical research background.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider the use of incentives and retention bonuses to keep talent and offer more competetitive salaries. Also, please try to allocate newly trained CRAs to projects soon after training completion.

    I worked at Medpace full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They will take onboard not experienced people, as such workforce is cheaper and easier to recruit.

    Cons

    The philosophy of owner is to maximize profits and the only way to do it is to get as much as he can from people. No ethics, no respect, only money that counts. There is also a large bunch of friends employeed. If you become one of them good for you but it can shift fast as winds are changing all the time. They love changing people and fire a lot. Turnover is huge due to high workload itself, Do not count on promotions, bonuses are low.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. They will never change. Unfortunately with this economy and market situation they can work like that for years, until market changes and they are wiped off.
