    I have been working at Clinical Research Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    ClinicalRM treats its employees with respect. Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    No real cons. As a contractor, ClinicalRM is not able to do much if the client is not making efficient use of its contract employees (too little work for some, too much for others).

    I worked at Clinical Research Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay in this position was good, as it should be in a position that has no job security. That was the only positive part.

    Cons

    The company has been under a lot of turnover at the management level, which led to a complete breakdown in communication. The management is a mess and I would not recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like the assets they are.

    I worked at Clinical Research Management full-time

    Pros

    I recall excitement around the growth of the company and the charisma of the founder and CEO, Victoria Tifft, who was quite friendly. While there wasn’t much they could do to impact conditions on the client site, they made it clear they cared and regularly held lunches and events on and off site. They made an effort to keep employees informed of corporate developments which gave everyone a feeling of inclusion.

    Cons

    The company’s strategy to win work was often to underbid competitors. This of course meant less money when they won work to pay employees. Their compensation and benefits were fair at best. If you are looking at a specific set of positions or work sites, see if you can find the same job with one of the prime contractors, like SAIC or HJF. You will likely get a better salary and almost certainly better benefits. If not, be prepared to negotiate the compensation terms - they often low-ball initial offers. It’s a fine place to start your career, just be sure to do your homework.

    Advice to Management

    A better selection of health and dental options. Improved tuition reimbursement – shorter commitment term and more generous.

    I worked at Clinical Research Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Staff in Frederick office cares about employees

    Cons

    Upper management has no idea what goes on at the customer sites. Top heavy on management. Cuts corners to make a buck. Directors in Ohio act like they are too good to interact with the people who make them money.

    Advice to Management

    CEO used to know what was happening. Not anymore.

    I have been working at Clinical Research Management full-time

    Pros

    They offer several flexibility including hours and work location, especially when there is some travel required for the job.

    Cons

    Benefits are not all that great, offering minimum at best. Almost impossible to get a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your financial resources and reward your employees, especially those that work offsite.

    Pros

    ClinicalRM is doing great things, simply put. The organization has grown tremendously since I joined and I expect that growth will continue. Just like people have a hard time with growth and change, organizations are no exception to this notion and perhaps struggle more as a collective group. As such, the organization is pushing through and continuing impressive work with some of the industry's top players. The company has the right direction indeed. Growth opportunities are real and abundant for employees. Hard work is respected and rewarded and this pushes ClinicalRM employees to work even harder.

    Cons

    Employees wear many hats and this can sometimes be a struggle. Some folks feel that their true talent gets tucked under the numerous side projects and multiple roles they play on a daily basis, and switching gears too often can be difficult to focus your talent on the bigger picture and let your light really shine.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the background (education and skill set) of your employees more and ensure they are set up for success. Continue the "Do the right thing" motto and continue to make a difference in the lives of others.

    Pros

    ClinicalRM is getting involved in a lot more than just staffing. Their work with Ebola is inspiring and I expect more opportunities to help make a difference. The company has very "family" feel to it and the headquarters staff are all very helpful. Although the company has been around for more than 20 years I believe they have grown and changed quite a bit over the last year. Change is difficult for any organization but I believe the company motto "Do the Right Thing" will guide them through the changes.

    Cons

    Small company so all the normal pros and cons to that.
    Facility at Headquarters is old and small.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the company and stay true to your motto "Do the Right Thing"
    Keep finding opportunities for your employees to contribute to meaningful projects.
    Don't let company growth change the family feel of the company.

    Former Employee - Web Developer in Silver Spring, MD

    I worked at Clinical Research Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Human Resource department was nice, but that's not out of the ordinary compared to other hiring agencies. 40 hour work week and no more, but that was not so much due to ClinicalRM, but rather to the fact that ClinicalRM was contracting me to work for the government.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything to complain about. It took too long for my security clearance to go through, I was waiting on it so long that I had to start looking for work elsewhere. But I really don't think this was due to a problem with ClinicalRM.

    Advice to Management

    Can't think of any problems about the management to suggest to fix. The staff was courteous, and was very understanding about any concerns I had about my work.
