    I worked at Chiltern International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People, a lot of people at Chiltern have been with the company for a long time and have some great experience.

    Cons

    People, team spirit in my team was awesome until the acquisition by Theorem. That pretty much ruined everything. Talk about a culture clash! I don't even think the legacy Theorem people even believe now that they were bought by Chiltern and now they've all been bought by someone else.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. You have a skilled workforce in places but they feel incredibly undervalued.

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

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Ability to work remotely.

    Cons

    Promotions done via committee, so even if you are already doing the job of the level above you, you may not get promoted if you don't have 'visibility'. Amount of hours working depends heavily on which project you are assigned to; FSP projects are often under-budgeted.

    Pros

    Great support from Managers. You can always count on your Line Managers to have your back when Team Leaders tend to overwhelm you with a million tasks they need done in 2 minutes.

    Cons

    The systems used could be better but I guess that always depends on what study you're on and whether the sponsor has their own systems they use.

    Pros

    Generally good co-workers and line managers

    Cons

    Over-processing problems and resourcing issues has led to poor work/life balance with inconsistent resourcing and employee support depending in the project.

    Advice to Management

    Actually focus on streamlining.
