    This is just personal. It is far from my home. The commute is long. Also, the constant push of non-work related cultural issues is irksome.

    Cons

    Few departments value the need for Clinical Research and think that studies should be run differently despite the need to follow GCP and regulatory guidelines. Other departments don't listen to clinical managers which is evident by the high rate of management turn over with the department.
