    Pros

    The people are pretty great here. There's a good sense of team and most people are very helpful.

    Cons

    Management sometimes sends mixed messages and it takes some "leading-up" to get to the true point.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear even if you think we won't like the message. We're adults - we can take it!

    I worked at ERT full-time

    Pros

    Job security - company is performing well in sales and revenue.
    Opportunity to cross train skill-sets and relocate across the global offices

    Cons

    Resources tightly squeezed in every department. Deliverable issues in most product lines. Can forget 9-5, or 8-6... most employees will need to do 12hr shifts to keep up with workload.

    ERT Response

    Nov 8, 2017 – Director, Talent Acquisition

    Thanks for your comments - we certainly strive to create a positive work/life balance that doesn't require 12 hour days, and when that is the case, we hope that people will come forward to share... More

    I have been working at ERT full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits and pay. Nice people to work with in the office but all from an acquired company.

    Cons

    Always derailed by acquisitions of competitors primarily because they can't beat them so they buy them which throws company into a tailspin. Old technology and no forethought and execution into the future. BD organization is really poorly run with people bickering all the time about ownership of opportunities in a cross matrix, poorly executed sales strategy. Delivery of solutions poorly executed as well.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize thought and look to some of your acquired companies for direction, leadership, and solutions instead of the same old, same old, "this is the way we've always done it"

    Pros

    They care about employees and their career develpment

    remote control makes it difficult to micromanagement

    Advice to Management

    I don't have much to say, they are doing pretty good

    I have been working at ERT full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure to clinical research industry
    Friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Lack of growth opportunities
    No support from middle management
    Instability from constant mergers/acquisitions

    ERT seems to be on a mission to acquire all competitors. They are a large player in their space but I guess acquiring companies is easier than trying to provide better quality products. ERT also has the tendency to promise clients the world without making sure internal resources are available to complete the work.

    Advice to Management

    When your employees ask for help with an issue, don’t just listen to them vent, do something to help them.
