    Pros

    My colleagues at OpenClinica are über bright and an absolute pleasure to work with. Great potential to learn and advance within an exciting, quick-growth life sciences company. At OpenClinica, there is a culture of forward-thinking people with the primary goal of finding the best way of helping the global community conduct clinical research more effectively and efficiently.

    Cons

    As with any small company, resource allocation and life balance can be a bit challenging.

    Pros

    Small company but with high potential. Close-knit environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes deadlines are ridiculous. Timings are in total control of the founders. People come and leave all the time. Not so competitive package.

    Pros

    The leaders of this company have a fantastic understanding of the business and their vision is inspiring. The product is useful and is really making a difference in the world. It is a small company and the owners really do care about the employees, their happiness, and the quality of the product. It really is like a family here, full of good people.

    The leaders of the company really do invest in their employees and the office.

    Cons

    - Hard issues around staffing, resourcing, and compensation were often acknowledged but not acted on
    - Lots of "band-aid" fixes in infrastructure. Leadership is willing to address these items, it just takes a while to filter the resources in the right places
    - There was a lot of residual "bad attitude" when I was there. The bad apples were mostly gone, but the vibe of the office wasn't very pleasant
    - From a product perspective, EDC isn't the most exciting thing to work on, but the company is making a difference in the world
    - Waltham location made it hard to recruit and hire

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to make changes and hard decisions re: staffing and resourcing. Keep investing in the right places.

    Pros

    - The company is rather small, so you get to interact with all teams, whether it's top management, Client Services or developers, which in turn helps everyone be on the same page and share a common vision.
    - The people are fun, ambitious and solution-oriented
    - Everyone is friendly and professional
    - Flexible schedule and time-off
    - A great environment for growth, both personal and professional

    Cons

    - Small company with limited human and financial resources. Sometimes not everything on the to-do list makes it to the top, but I guess it's part of the process a growing company goes through.

    Pros

    The company has an infrastructure of a medium sized company and it gives an immense opportunity to learn, develop and lead. The management encourages growth and development-- forward thinking leadership.
    Team is really smart and passionate about their job and the product. The company is invested in open community giving an opportunity to share ideas -which very few companies offer in health care.

    Cons

    The Company could benefit from more engineers.
