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

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Watertown, MA

    ProsMost 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.

    ConsThe "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 Senior ManagementProvide 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    NERI senior management have no direction.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mixed bag

    Clinical Research Associate (Former Employee) Watertown, MA

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

    ConsMostly 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.

    New England Research Institutes provides opportunity to learn about clinical research management.

    Clinical Research Administrative Intern (Former Employee) Watertown, MA

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsThere 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.

    An excellent place to work where learning is the key motto

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsAll Master level researchers are placed under the guidance of a PhD level researcher so you learn a lot working on your research. A very academic atmosphere. Great benefits and pay. Good family values and very open to all cultures.

    Consgrowth for MS level employees is limited.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you do.
