    I worked at PharmaNet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My line managers were always great. I was allowed flex time and summer hours. Home-based position was very nice. I never felt that my job was in jeopardy.

    Cons

    The IT issues are unbearable, and the company lacks a usable CTMS. Merit increases are no longer linked to performance. Constant change creates a lot of turn over within project teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resourcing and IT issues

    Pros

    Some flexible work hours, opportunity to be innovative

    Not willing to invest in technology to enhance job requirements. No formal training for job function, I trained staff more than I was ever trained. Benefits could be better.

    I have been working at PharmaNet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very few. Benefits were okay, location convenient.

    Cons

    Terrible morale. Minimal training, no clear communication from management. Rule by fear and intimidation. Archaic, old-school culture instituted by (deceased) founder is still maintained. Upper management cuts themselves off from lower employees. Territorial infighting between depts. Appeal to HR for resolution of bullying by another employee not addressed correctly (I should have sued). Truly a miserable experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go out of business.
