    Mostly a good place to work if you can keep your head down and not draw too much attention.

    I worked at New England Research Institutes full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most areas of the company are pretty laid back. Employees have some flexibility to adjust work hours to accommodate family needs. Work is interesting and provides benefit to others.

    Cons

    The "laid back" nature of the company depends on who you work for. It's strange how people sometimes vanish from the company without explanation--it leads to rumours about they just didn't get along with the right people and were booted out. There's been a lot of turnover at the senior management level lately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more information to employees about future work and direction of company. Owners are older, and it's not clear what the long-term plans are for the organization when they eventually retire.

    I have been working at New England Research Institutes

    Pros

    Relax and good place to learn if you are new to research field. Flexible schedule work best for worker with children.

    Cons

    Owners are getting old and have no real directions for grow but rely on people who have no expertise to lead a company. You can't let a blind to lead. Workers don't have much saying in the company anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone with a vision and let she/he run it without the interfere from owners.

    I worked at New England Research Institutes full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Bright, friendly, highly educated employees. Low stress. Flex time. Free parking. Public transportation stops right in front of building. More offices than cubicles.

    Cons

    Mostly NIH funded studies rather than biotech or pharma, so may have a problem moving to industry. Company is now seeking industry studies. Pay may be a little lower than average. No designated room to have lunch with colleagues.

    I worked at New England Research Institutes as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The working environment is relaxed and there are many opportunities to get involved in clinical research projects. Clinical research projects are interesting and range from small to large scale/international in patient enrollment. The employees are very approachable.

    Cons

    There are few disadvantages to working at NERI. This company treats their employees well and maintaining their effectiveness as a CRO that manages several clinical trials.
