    I worked at clinivation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to a broad range of client engagements in the medtech industry. Clients are typically senior/board-level executives and engagements involve in-depth research and solutions for critical business and product development issues. You can gain valuable experience in all aspects of business. It's a unique opportunity to advance your career and to be mentored by highly qualified industry experts.

    Cons

    At times, the clients can be demanding but this can be expected give the nature of the work.

    I have been working at clinivation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really feel like a good portion of who I am today is due to the great experiences I've had at clinivation. I have met some amazing people that are both smart and friendly. The technology is super, and I'm a bit of a techy so that for me is a huge plus. I also enjoy the clients! I get to meet people from all over the world, which I really enjoy. I feel a strong sense of pride from the projects I've been able to be a part of.

    Cons

    If you like this line of work there aren't any. You need to be detailed oriented and upbeat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at clinivation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities for career growth working with top medical centers/companies on many new medical products. We get to use technology with consulting and CRO services to make working easier and efficient for us and for customers. Lots of positive feedback from customers. Good culture of teamwork and high performance standards. Good comp + bonus. Benefits include the usual plus professional training, certifications, tuition, day care, mileage/company car, H1B visa sponsor, relocation, health club, perks. Flexible work arrangements are possible if you are a good performer.

    Cons

    Company is intense and works 24/7/365, so sometimes we need to participate on teams at night on international calls. Clients can be bossy and rude even when they don’t know what they are talking about. Slackers who don’t do the training and can’t pass any cert exams can freak out and blame other people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More broadcasting of customer success stories.

    I have been working at clinivation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Accounts managers and teams are treated well and with appropriate respect. Products and services are differentiated with many good customer references at executive-level and C-level. Always busy and travelling, and work schedule may be flexible. Culture is based on teamwork. Awesome learning experience with training and certification goals.

    Cons

    Work-life balance may be a challenge for people- from all the training goals and travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more great people for our teams ;-)

    I have been working at clinivation as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very busy technology company. Work is very organized and has procedures for getting things done quickly. Owner/CEO is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and work with the crew. He is respectful and no nonsense. There is a drug-free policy and some people are gone. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Must work nights and weekends on occasions, but usually can be flexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a manager for supervising people on their cellphones and personal conversations.

    Questionable business practices, fails to pay contractors ontime (months late), demeaning dictatorship at the top

    I worked at clinivation as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Right space to be a thriving industry, and the vision of what the company could be is there.

    Cons

    Lack of reinvestment in company, lack of investment in people. Runs the organization in an attempt to scare employees. Failure to pay his human capital ontime. Hides behind scathing emails and threats of non-payment to clients. Consistent complaint from across the country, and failure to realize micromanagement without proving yourself is counter-productive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employee and contractor morale, turn-over is understandable, 90% turnover means something is wrong with management.
