    Pros

    My department was great to work in although we generally felt as we were looked at as the morons of the company, good benefits for a small company, good employee appreciation perks

    Cons

    lack of communication (too many meetings that accomplish nothing), managers don't manage, client rules all (which is bad when you're talking about rushing projects that shouldn't be rushed), catty environment, if you want to advance you need to be your own advocate--no plan in place.

    Pros

    Management is approachable and when you do good work, you’ll usually get rewarded with more $$ and responsibility. You can also move within the company: if you find something that interests you outside of your department, you can usually work on it or transfer roles. Good amount of time off, family oriented.

    Cons

    Need to replace “Reply All” to emails with project management software, sometimes information isn't shared between departments. Health benefits are “just ok.”

    Advice to Management

    Work on providing more developmental opportunities for employees; right now they have to seek them out on their own.

    The exposure to clinical trials work and travel are only pro.

    Advice to Management

    Need a fresh management team with fresh ideas. Be ethical and fair in your hiring and firing practices.

    Pros

    Clinical work & projects

    Cons

    Expect noisy people to spy into your computers, cubicles and listen to your conversations. The president's secretaries are full of cady gossip and make comments about employees who work in HR.... These are the people who will be managing the office

    Advice to Management

    Appoint neutral hard working people

    Pros

    I didn't have to waste my gas traveling there.

    Cons

    After reading what other people wrote here, I'm glad I didn't get a job there.

    Advice to Management

    The receptionist performs the interviews!!! This means that someone who knows nothing about what I do scored me on a phone interview, and decided that I wasn't good enough to work there. LMAO!

    Pros

    Exposure to clinical trials

    Cons

    Very little team support, let employees go without notice (and without strong reason), a sincere talk to upper management about your work progress can and will get you fired. People seem friendly and supportive at first, but you can't really trust anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time training individuals who have a lot of potential

    Pros

    As stated in other reviews, the actual work is somewhat interesting.

    Cons

    The management. I've never seen anything like this. Extremely high turn over rate (specifically in the clinical research department, the others are fine), which creates a very tense and stressful work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Leave.
