    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    Keep the current vision & mission!

    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

    -Pay is above industry average -Direct communication with Executive Suite -Due to growth of business, plenty of opportunity to jump on implementation projects, system updates, etc. -Very open to ideas of employees, especially those from competition

    Cons

    -Top heavy, mostly senior level staff/managers (not a con some would argue, but all I could think of) -It's difficult to think of any negative aspects of the company.

    Advice to Management

    This company is on the right track - keep it up!

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Good work environement and good people to work with. Salaries and benefits compariable with the industry. Management at the Director and VP Level committed to the quality of the work and the employees.

    Cons

    Executive Management keeps decisions very close to the vest. New ownership reducing staff in waves creates an environment of uncertainty and distrust. Little communication about the direction of the company to the rank and file.

    Advice to Management

    Let people know what's going on and the challenges facing the company and industry. Make up your mind and make the cuts and be done with it.
