    I have been working at Bioclinica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment with a staff focused on improving health and helping our clients bring life changing drugs to market. I love working for a company that I know is making a positive difference in the lives of so many. The learning opportunities are there for the asking. The firm has great benefits and meaningful work.

    Cons

    Like most professional services company experiencing significant rapid growth, there are challenges around striking the right balance of staffing/forecasting when talent is needed. However the proper strategies are in place to propel the people and the company forward.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. Work the GTM plans as you created them. Continue to invest in the teams and empower us to make great decisions for the firm.

    Pros

    Business is evolving in the right direction, especially now that our two leading business segments have become one unified business. I'm encouraged about the future!

    Cons

    You can still feel some resistance to change amongst some of the longer-term leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent to your employees; Keep communicating!

    Pros

    None, cannot think of any.

    Cons

    No business strategy, decide with insufficient information to see quick change, many cases the SMEs becoming managers who do not have genuine people/business management skills.

    Advice to Management

    Have the long-term strategy with reasonable investment period.

    I have been working at Bioclinica full-time

    Pros

    Bioclinica is a company of Millennials who don't expect much in terms of company loyalty to employees, fair pay, and an upbeat place to work. In general they accept all of this in exchange for an opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    If you are experienced this is not the place for you. The bottom line; dollars and data rule everything. The soft data regarding one's individual contribution to the company has no value. Instead you are evaluated on your cost to the company. If you have a higher salary commensurate with experience, you are dispensable. It is why so many very good people have left, and why the company is not winning more contracts. Bioclinica has more Glassdoor pages with more insights. This is the page that corporate hacks are posting comments on to boost the ratings of the company and its CEO

    Advice to Management

    Weeding out the old boys network appears to be happening, which is a step in the right direction. Bringing back experienced team members responsible for growing the business initially will be key

    Pros

    Bioclinica has a supportive management team and co-workers within the CSM team. You will gain a great amount of knowledge on clinical trials working with the sites and/or sponsors and project teams. Opportunities to learn and grow are possibilities.

    Cons

    Only con is if you do not enjoy fast pace work environment and learning new information each day.

    Pros

    The company name of BioClinica has a great reputation.

    Cons

    The company name might still be BioClinica, but the companies that they acquired (for cheap) are unfortunately the systems and processes being followed. The BioClinica of old is not part of the current model. If you question any of the decisions, you are either ignored or chastised.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at the talent that you have lost over the past 2 years.
