Pros

Pros to this place would only be the 20 paid-time off (PTO) days. It's better than your standard 2 weeks vacation and 5-8 sick days like most places since you could ideally use all 20 days for a long vacation or sick leave. Depending on who you report to, you would be able to use PTO on short notice if need be.

Cons

1. The atmosphere of the company culture runs top down, so they makes sure you understand who is senior management and who is allowed to think for themselves. Otherwise, do not try to think independently. Do as you are told.
2. Most people are miserable there, just doing enough to stay under the radar and avoid unfavorable attention.
3. There is no "one team umbrella" company wide, but rather the individual departments akin to silos. So meetings are typically held under the guise of action planning/problem solving, but in reality, they are turf wars with plenty finger pointing.
4. There are many inefficient processes that need obvious improvement, but they believe to group-think, hold the line of "we've always done it this way" dearly and are unwilling to improve or adapt.

So if you want to be just a cog in the big machine, then this is the place for you.

Advice to Management

Take off the rose-colored glasses and get a pulse of what is really going on within the company. If they would allow employees to complete a survey with complete anonymity, perhaps the company could actually listen to employee suggestions and improve! Senior management needs to simply value the input of people beyond their titles.

    Pros

    They are not micromanagers. Everyone is easy to get along with. Works with several pharm companies which give you good experience

    Cons

    Too many meetings.. Not enough room for advancement opportunities. Deals only with imaging aspects of clinical trials in the Newtown office.

    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.
