    I have been working at eResearchTechnology full-time

    Pros

    Very good benefits package that they offer which includes a good 401k matching program, employee exchange program is also great.

    Cons

    The communication is just plain awful. No room for growth. A lot of hear-say

    Advice to Management

    Stop stealing ideas of your employees and try to implement them as your own. Also, allow your employees the growth that they desire, especially without the hassle. You canNOT keep people in an entry-level position forever.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Location is in the safe part of the city.

    Cons

    Very low salaries and little opportunity for growth except for the upper management. No bonuses. They are working their people to the bone at > 125% utilization and no one is allowed to be hired, to keep costs down - except sales, of course. Most managers do not know anything about the clinical world, they are hired to be yes men.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps a group of investors is not the best set of people to run a company, unless you want it run into the ground.

    Not sure what to say here. I'm underpaid and overworked. I've gotten good reviews for years but they won't allow me to transfer to a better job or different department.

    Pros

    Some new turnover in management offers hope the company will be able to revive. Strong technology.

    Cons

    Some executive management still in place who have no idea how to manage or lead a company. They have been employed for years, slowly promoted, and yet have no business being in executive management. Attempts to merge several companies into a single technology base have failed miserably internally.

    Advice to Management

    Cut ties with executive management baggage. Continue on course of bringing in real executive management staff to bring strategic direction to the company.

    Pros

    Good company values, very good people - clearly the HR department knows what they are doing.

    Cons

    People are hired after something called an assessment center review where main contenders are all put in the same room and made to compete one another .. yet they are told to work as a team. Really strange environment.. Organizational structure is changing constantly. Recently moved to a more flat structure which made it impossible for some much deserving people to move up in their careers.

    Advice to Management

    Dear management - you all seem like awesome and very smart people but if you don't show some appreciation to the good people that work hard for you - you will lose them.
