I worked at Pharma Medica Research full-time
I received a variety of experiences in a very short period of time. I was given so much responsibility that I felt motivated to succeed. The work environment allowed me to be honest and explain my decisions.
You have to study the projects very well and multitask with 5 different projects happening simultaneously in 5 different clinics. Preparation is very key and losing focus can put you in a bad position. Asking questions is very important and don’t shy away if you are reprimanded. Hard work is appreciated and observed by the management.
I don't know a single Clinical Research organization that does not struggle with projects that have to be completed in the most precise manner and trying to accomplish that is enormously difficult with so many people playing important roles.
I enjoyed the fact that Pharma Medica Inc., was a new company in St Louis and was very diverse. You get to meet people from all around the world and if you are a people’s person you will enjoy it. This is very unique in Clinical Research organizations.
The salary is good in entry level positions. I truly wish them the best.
There are many challenges. The management is very thorough and strict which does stress the employees. The organization was trying to make it better by constantly training us.
The work in never ending and you must learn to work your life around the projects.
The QC and QA process is endless as documentation is thoroughly checked before it goes to the sponsor.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pharma Medica Research (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2015.
The interview process was really laid back. They don't ask typical questions they just ask about you. may ask about experience . What your goals are in life, what your availability would be. That is about it easy interview and when they are hiring they usually call back in a week or so.
