    Growing company with many opportunities for career advancement

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Austin, TX

    I have been working at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Strong work/life balance, opportunity for advancement, appropriate compensation/benefits

    I can only speak from my personal experience, but over the course of many years, I've been given many opportunities to prove myself and advance my own career. I've had the opportunity to work with all areas and leadership to see the company from varied perspectives.

    If I were to use the star-system as a rating (1-bad, 2-needs improvement, 3-average, 4-good, 5-excellent), in terms of my position, work/life balance is 5 (I'm intrinsically motivated and understand that time and productivity must be balanced to benefit the company, in turn, benefiting the employee). Compensation is a 4 - truthfully speaking, everyone feels they should get paid more, so perfection is elusive. Career Opportunities is also a 4. No company seems invulnerable to the fluctuating market, but I feel I'm a strong contributor. Senior Management is 4 - I'm given lots of autonomy, but could use a slightly more open line of communication. Additionally, all of my direct supervisors have allowed me to use them in a mentor-like capacity (helping me with advancement).

    My overall rating is at a 4 (if taking the other areas and averaging the total). If I were to give a tip to prospective applicants - be flexible and open to change - if something is wrong, find a way to fix it.

    Cons

    Hectic work environment (at times), average job culture, (some) communication static

    The most evident aspect of the company is the rapid change associated with rapid growth. Although there are challenges, this is to be expected with a company rapidly moving to meet client demand.

    Culture / values sits at 3 due to the aforementioned breakneck pace of change and meeting client demand. I think the rating would be average with most similar companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication (even if brief). Praise employee strengths. Learn from employee weaknesses. Communicate again.

    Pros

    It is fast paced. It feels good to contribute to the possible discovery of life-saving/life altering medications.

    Cons

    Some exempt positions require lots of overtime including nights and weekends. The timed environment can be stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Praise employees for a job well done. Thank them for their hard work and dedication on a regular basis.

    I worked at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Their systems were relatively easy to learn. Questions and support were given quickly by members of the team.

    Cons

    I thought this was going to be a great fit, as I gave 300% on the project and really enjoyed the work. Out of the blue, I was let go. To this day, I still have no clue why. I found out the worst way, by the CRA who was replacing me telling me she was taking all of my sites. When I inquired with management what was going on, I was ignored for days until I received the formal business letter stating they were terminating me. So much for giving 300% to a project! It would have been nice to know why they were letting me go, or better yet, to know what I could have done to have perhaps corrected the issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For starters, perhaps let someone know why they're being let go. Better yet, perhaps let them know if you have issues so they can be corrected before it even gets this far. This is the reason why employees aren't loyal to employers!

    I worked at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Casual work environment, no dress code, friendly and intelligent coworkers, freedom to manage own workload, collaboration generally encouraged.

    Cons

    Oppressive, paranoid atmosphere created by CEO and senior management, the manner in which kowtowing to management was quite blatantly proposed as the thing to do, workers not respected as the seasoned, experienced professionals they are, lots and lots of talk by middle managers and very little effort to address problems, company underpaying and being unconcerned about it while expecting the very best work at all times, the age-old tension between quality and quantity, and quantity (fast-throughput) winning every time despite quality always being the wisest way to go, ultimately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meet with experienced, long-time employees, even if they aren't managers, and find out what frustrates them on a daily basis. Then, instead of simply relaying the findings to your under managers, do some research and put an improvement plan in place yourself, and set your manager to following through with it with deadlines and accountability.

    Pros

    All employees have a college degree and are therefore intelligent and hard working. There is a real team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Management does not have loyalty to its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sound advice would be to place a Mentor program for all new employees.

    Pros

    The company is growing which means job security. Small enough to not be just a cog in a machine, but big enough for stability.

    Cons

    Not alot of training for entry level positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More practical training for entry level workers.
