    Contracts Dept

    Contract Specialist (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsHas nice perks like gym, free lunch, and food trucks. Building is clean and brand new.

    ConsYour salary will be (way) below market standards, you will not get promoted quickly or move up even if it makes sense and the department needs it. The red tape in this company is ridiculous. Bad supervisors get to stick around while undervalued employees that make a difference get fed up and leave. You won't be eligible for a raise until 1 year after you work there (for most departments) and HR purposefully schedules your yearly review one week before you're year anniversary. So you can't even get a raise for another six months when your next review is scheduled. Its sneaky things like this that show you that Medpace does not really value it's employees. At all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company is growing quickly. While the lower levels grows upper management refuses to change. Major readjustments must be made!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    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

    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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent

    CRA (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsVery structured, positive, great learning opportunities

    ConsPay is below industry standard (very below), the non-compete required to sign at hire is extremely limiting as to where can work 12 months after employment ends, and if you are good at what you do, expect to work 60+hr weeks

    Advice to Senior Managementwork/home life balance keeps employees loyal

    Do you like to chase carrots on a stick?

    Project Coordinator (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsFree fitness room, free lunch, benefits are decent, salary is decent.

    ConsManagement makes promises they can't or won't keep. Very capable and bright employees are undervalued and unchallenged as promotions are not based on merit so much as popularity. Training is nonexistent. It's sink or swim.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to value employees who are bright and seeking the opportunity to learn and advance.

    Try somewhere Else...

    CRA (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsBenefits: Free lunch everyday, onsite gym, secure building, and pretty good health/dental insurance with different savings plans like 401k etc.

    ConsIf your not the Barbie Doll type don't waste your time...they say training is supposed to be 4-6 months but for about half its really a judgment of 4-6 weeks. This company really doesn't give you a chance to improve, gives no warnings before discharging really good employees. Just be cautious before accepting their offer, because it can really hurt your chances at getting another job like this one in the industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is willing to help, however you have to seek the help. Even if you do it doesn't make a difference if they will keep you on or not. They simply don't give their employees a chance to improve their skills...even if the job is something new.

    Great, fast-paced working environment full of very helpful co-workers!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI really enjoy the workplace environment offered at Medpace. People are social, but it does not hinder their abilities of working hard. There is always room to grow in the company which is definitely motivation. I particularly enjoy how fast-paced the environment is, only because it makes you feel like you accomplish a lot in just a short amount of time and you are always on your toes. Everyone is very approachable here and are willing to help in any circumstance. Those who have been here longer than others serve as great role models as well.

    ConsI know for some people they may not enjoy being at their desk for long periods of time, feeling lethargic, and would rather be up and about however, Medpace offers great choices to be active such as a 24-hour gym facility, workout classes, as well as a mapped out walking trail around the company's campus.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
