    Pros

    people are really cooperative and willing to share learnings and experience, non-competitive, collegial, especially when work remotely have to work this way

    Cons

    at this point in my career have not experienced any cons, perhaps one con is that work remotely and can sometimes have a hard time separately work from personal life but that could happen at any company where work remotely

    I was very satisfied until i3 was bought by inVentv

    Pros

    Assigned towork with a only one sponsor
    Get lots of positive feedback.
    Treated as a professional.
    Assigned sites are regional

    As part of the PSP, I am assigned to a a only one sponsor and 4 sister protocols for the same therapeutic area. The managers on my team have worked hard to keep our assigned sites local or regional. I've had 3 really good managers, all of whom were supportive and gave a lot of positive feedback. We've been treated as professionals and our time is flexible. We are given lots of updates which can be good or bad.

    Cons

    Things are in upheaval since bought by inVentiv.
    Lots of turnover at present.
    Too many managers.
    Not enough worker bees.

    Although we are given frequent updates about the merger, it is hard to know what to expect when all of the changes are finalized. It feels like it is taking forever to sort things out.

    I'm not sure how much of my dissatisfaction is from the merger and how much is due to the sponsor I am currently assigned to. This particular sponsor has a lot of unwieldy applications and requires an excessive amount of training. There are a lot of tasks that are given higher priority than monitoring sites, which should be of utmost importance. We are overworked because of this and because we can't keep enough monitors to make up a complete team. It is impossible to do the job in a 40-50 hour work week. I was able to deal with this until the merger. The added stress of all of the resulting changes have been too much. I will probably be leaving soon..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline management and hire more CRAs. Be more judicious when negotiating contracts with sponsors so CRAs are not overworked. Sponsor expectations should be more clear cut and consitent from beginning to end of each protocol. Allowing sponsors to add extra work with immediate deadlines leads to low morale and higher turnover in staff.

    Senior management was completely in over their head and about 15 years behind the curve

    Pros

    mid-level folks were great and very smart and competent. People tended to get promoted far beyond their capabilities and with no emphasis on their interpersonal skills or actual industry expertise

    Cons

    senior management never ever has your back, the more you do and the harder you work, the more will be expected of you. It is never enough and you never feel secure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason they've slowly been made redundant and irrelevant.

    Leadership and management skills were poor and inconsistent throughout the company.

    Pros

    Provided good health benefits through United Healthcare.

    Cons

    Poor management and leadership skills, inconsistent promotions and bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i3research would have been a great company to work if they had not allowed many highly skilled and competent employees over a period of time to leave because of continued dissatisfaction and frustration due to decisions not to act on their issues and concerns. If the company had been willing to correct or replace bad upper management employees with managers who possessed good management and people skills, it could have been an enjoyable place to work.

    Pros

    The payscales are fair and mid-management is very supportive of their direct reports. Flexibility is givem freely as long as it is earned.

    Cons

    Work present load is high and the cuts in staff have been significant. Employees are looking from direction from the top but have been in the dark.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees - they need to know what is going on in the corporation and how the changes are planned.
