    Pros

    Came here after being burned out from my last job. The company has made alot of improvements from my understanding to make it a great place to work. I've been very happy with the changes and my line manager has been great. My travel has been great and I like the benefits very much.

    Cons

    Processes could be a bit tighter, but that has already improved since I joined.

    Pros

    - The atmosphere here is dynamic and fast paced. No day is ever the same so no chance to get bored!
    - Travel and workload is less than my previous company. Expectations of employees here are more realistic, meaning a better work / life balance.
    - Management are interested in progressing employees. It seems that they want to retain good staff here.
    - Exciting time to be part of Premier Research.

    Cons

    - You cannot blend into the background here so there is no shying away from challenges / situations. People here are very much treated as an indvidual and you should be ready to have an opinion and make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what your doing! The company is in a really positive place at the moment.

    I have been working at Premier Research full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Came from a larger CRO, as I know others did too, and this was a positive change. Workload is better, travel is more reasonable, and the people are great here. Feel like the people here are more genuine in caring about me and progression in my career here.

    Cons

    Most of the clinical staff is home-based, so if you're not used to being home-based, it could be isolating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the current vision & mission!

    Pros

    Great way to advance your career with a mid-size CRO. Hard working family atmoshpere. If you work hard and accomplish your goals you are rewarded.

    Cons

    The company does not have all the bells and whitsles of a larger CRO but there is also a lot less red tape you have to go through to accomplish your goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company does not have all the bells and whistles of a larger CRO but there is also a lot less red tape you have to go through to accomplish your goals to meet tight deadlines.

    I have been working at Premier Research as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Learn a lot about business skills, how to write "Business English". A lot of great people here who are all very nice to me.

    Cons

    There is no perfect places. I think you should judge people based on their performance... not seniority level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise is the same as the cons, but it's difficult because you can only oversee this much... I think an implementation of judging people by their accomplishment is better than seniority.

    I worked at Premier Research full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy management, great office, nice young people, good career opportunities and nice working hours in my case 11 to 7 PM. One day home office weekly.

    Cons

    Very specific experience which is not always applicable in the local labor market; payment could have been better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is in general doing a good job, keeping employees in the loop and being fair as long as fairness is possible being a manager on project based teams. There are not enough activities boosting the team spirit so go and organize them.

    Pros

    Line Manger support great
    Decent benefits
    Highly professional environment
    Great educational reimbursement program
    Highly quality-oriented more than quantity-oriented which is rare

    Cons

    Not a lot of top down communication, CRAs left in the dark most of the time
    CRAs are treated like red-headed step children during client meetings, basically told to shut their mouths so they don't embarasss the company, even though they are the bread-winners

    Working people are great; communication between manager and employee are good; Number of PTO and holiday are better than others.

    Where the company will go? No one knows. It seems a big change will be present to us from the new CEO.
