    Growing company with many opportunities for career advancement

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsStrong 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.

    ConsHectic 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 Senior ManagementCommunication (even if brief). Praise employee strengths. Learn from employee weaknesses. Communicate again.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people, growing company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsNot alot of training for entry level positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore practical training for entry level workers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I learned a lot about pharmaceutical research.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Antonio, TX

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementPraise employees for a job well done. Thank them for their hard work and dedication on a regular basis.

    Crazy workload

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou learn a lot about clinical trials and work in a good professional and collegial environment. You gain a lot of experience, structural knowledge of the processes, experience of working in a team under pressure. This experience will definitely contribute in your professional future. Try to bear the rhythm and the workload for several years, be patient with every misfortune, kind to colleagues, support the weaker ones, understand your management, and you will be successful on your future way when you decide to move on. I wish you a lot of love to this company and the best of luck.

    ConsWork/Life balance is excluded. Family interests are excluded. Vacations excluded. Truly for singles wiling to work clockwise and anti-clockwise :)

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed of more soldiers and less bosses, career development for the employees, "grown up" by WCT, rather than preference to the newly hired externals, and more developed system of internal procedures.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    On a scale from one to ten, ten being the most positive, I would rate the company as a whole as a six.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Morrisville, NC

    ProsThe company has a great understanding of the work/home life balance

    ConsIt seems as if it's more who you know rather than your work habits and accomplishments in order to move to the next appropriate level/title

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees with objective ears.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
