    I worked at Bioclinica full-time

    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.

    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

    You get a paycheck consistently

    Cons

    Lack of true leadership at the C level and next level down
    A lot of talk about leadership but it doesn't translate into actual leadership
    Career opportunities are non existent and high performers are not rewarded for their efforts and contribution
    Lack of corporate identity- is this a software company, a services company, a CRO?
    Each new set of management that comes in brings with it their own idea of what the company identity is and then bad mouths the previous management team which is not what true leadership is about
    Lack of overall business sophistication in the area of software

    Advice to Management

    Understand who your top talent is and work hard to understand their motivation and reward them based on what motivates them
    Read some books on what true leadership means

    Pros

    A few nice and smart people remaining

    Cons

    Stifling management lies. There is a vision that is talked about but the reality is when it comes down to it is it really a lie. It is all about getting any deal without a care about being able to support the project. Layoffs, a transition to India offshoring to save money while still charging a premium, HORRIBLE executive management, harassment and politics makes this a place that would cause you to cry.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the lies. Respect your employees and see their true value. Many of us are highly experienced with decades of industry knowledge. Stop using us to train our inexperienced 1/10th price replacements

    I worked at Bioclinica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work from home option is nice if your qualify for it. The PTO and Holiday package is generous. Basically the only pros involve not being at work.

    Cons

    Every organization is a skeleton crew. Every team has an impossible workload.

    There is a high level of nepotism. Individuals are hired and promoted without any experience, just because they are sorority sisters with the hiring manager. The burden of training inexperienced and unskilled workers falls on an already stretched thin team.

    Speaking up is frowned upon as it is deemed as a challenge to the system.

    A majority of the HR team is cold and seems unapproachable. Also, there is almost no HR presence in the office.

    Advice to Management

    The reason no one participates in the Princeton meet and greets and the employee engagement surveys is because people are either scared and/or they do not think it will make a difference.

    Define the culture, develop a vision, and share information with employees. Everything is such a secret and the constant unknown with the constant transitions are extremely uncomfortable.

    Pros

    Bioclinica can be a good company, depending on the division that you are working for.

    The upper management in the eHealth division is unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Please ensure all divisions are adhering to company directives.

    Pros

    They had the money to buy leading companies, combine into one, and sell off as a whole with one huge profit. The high percentage of good hard working people that worked in these companies have been chewed up and spat out. Those remaining are within the clique. Time will tell whether the new owners see that they bought a lemon.

    Cons

    Low pay, over worked, too much bureaucracy, lack of transparency., HR never there to help, no leadership, and no one will take accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management who care and listen!

    Pros

    They have money behind them so they will probably grow.

    Cons

    Management is focused on acquisitions and not customers or employees.

    Advice to Management

    Good people are soul of a service business. Start treating people less like junk.

    Pros

    none none none none none

    Cons

    Total disconnect from the upper management. Middle management is mostly inexperienced and incompetent. Employees are kept in the dark about their future. There are constant mergers and acquisitions. Managers have to lie to their employees to keep them around. No clear long term goals.
    HR department consists of the meanest people possible on top and is absolutely inapproachable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people from inside who do not have true industry experience.
    Home come at the town halls there are huge gains announced every quarter, but in reality the company is always behind on budget?
