    I worked at Medpace full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, nice office space. Good work/life balance. The free gym is nice.

    Cons

    They market the free lunch, it's terrible. They hire a large group of people and don't provide great training. They have the philosophy of throwing everything at the wall and waiting to see what sticks. I was trained by other interns, not a trainer or my manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees. Maybe consider hirring a lower quantity, but higher quality. Managers should have some contact with employees. i went multiple weeks at a time without any communication from my manager.

    I have been working at Medpace

    Pros

    Medpace offers a client-centric approach and provides their staff with the resources and tools to get the job done. While some CROs focus on adhering to budget, Medpace allows their teams to focus on quality by separating the project team from the finances. Teams have the ability to focus on a quality product for their client.

    Medpace offers employment opportunities and paid internships for individuals just out of college and searching for an opportunity to learn the pharmaceutical research business.

    Cons

    Medical benefits could be better- high premiums and copays.

    I worked at Medpace full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure for non-clinical associates to be exposed to the industry....However the cons outweigh this benefit.
    Nice co-workers who enjoy what they do

    Cons

    This company is very crafty at "low-balling" all clinical associates in this industry. The company is always hiring because they are always firing. The reason they train is because they want to start individuals at a low salary so that they don't have to pay you the standard salary in the CRO industry for clinical associates. Once a person with the company gets close to standard pay in the industry, they fire them and give their studies to the underpaid associates, the companies cunning business trick to overwork and underpay hard working individuals in this industry and not have to pay employees their worth. If you are a CRA with current exposure to the industry work for another CRO instead of Medpace so you can get paid the standard salary in this industry and have a stable job and work life balance. If you do have to work for this company in order to gain exposure into the clinical market make sure to proceed with as much precaution as possible. Work smart every single day and have copies of everything important in regards to your employment or anything that you sign so that when they low-ball you, you can protect yourself. I wouldn't advise working with this company for more than a year or 2 at most, the company seems like they are in financial trouble. they are constantly looking for someone to buy them and there are always so many CRAs without any studies waiting for assignment. Medpace would be a better company if they would fix their training program, treat employees valuable in all respects especially employees that are located outside of headquarters location. I understand that all companies have their issues and are not perfect but in comparison to other CRO'S Medpace does not compare at all. Switching companies was the best decision I've made thus far. Overall be smart and proceed with caution if you do decide to work for this company hopefully don't ignore the warnings and work smart.

    Good growth opportunity

    I have been working at Medpace

    Pros

    There are a lot of departments with flexibility to move within the company, both growth or lateral. Many positions allow autonomy while still being a part of a team.

    Cons

    The medical benefits are a little pricey compared to other companies. As with any corporate company, getting raised or promotions can be difficult for some the way the current system is set up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compare employees across their position rather than by supervisor.

    Pros

    They offer good benefits, the facility is nice.

    Cons

    The leadership is horrible. Managers were very unhelpful and seemed annoyed by any questions asked, making it hard to feel open with them. Because of this, you learn by asking all your other coworkers on what you should be doing, which offers no consistency. Their training programs need a lot of work. Also, if you don't like working long hours, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on communicating better with your coworkers, especially with new hires.

    Weak leadership and old school management in the lab. Very old school.

    Pros

    Great salary and bonuses package when available.

    Cons

    Health and dental plans are expensive when compared to other place I worked. Management is old school and based on old buddies from the past who have not really evolved in management and leadership skills. Very high school mentality. The lab is a rather toxic environment but employees are staying mainly because of the money...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need new blood with strong and great leadership and management skills.... Do not hire without thinking and then fire without thinking. Think, think, think... and think again.

    Pros

    A very young, ambitious staff that is fun to work with. Benefits are decent with a good work-life balance

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for personal and professional growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper, upper management needs to be less involved on the day to day operations and continue to look at the big picture. Also, there needs to be more recognition of some weak links in the management staff.

    I worked at Medpace

    Pros

    - There are some people here who really know what they are doing
    - Nice shiny new offices
    - Strong therapeutic knowledge throughout the clinical staff

    Cons

    - CEO is still way too involved, and occasionally verbally abusive
    - Top level functional management has been the same for +15 years ... they aren't going to budge on new ideas
    - Uncompetitive pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start embracing change. Top management: LET GO. Be willing to pay for talent.
