Pros

Some nice people who wanted to do a good job.

Cons

Working at Clinical Professionals was a constant struggle.
Management were completely non supportive, no consideration was given to less trained members of staff. Promotion was at hoc and it seemed that having a strong relationship with the owner provided more opportunity for promotion than anything else.
Often the size and capabilities of the company were expanded beyond the actual reality of the situation. Bids and tenders were often completed with some sort of fairytale image of the companies abilities.

Advice to Management

Sell quickly. You can't handle it.

    Pros

    Clinical Professionals is a company which has a good "work hard" - "play hard" environment. CP really reward employees who put in their hours and achieve their targets. On a weekly basis employees get recognised as star performer of the week, every quarter the top consultants/back office team get to go on a night out on the company and last but not least every year the top billers go on a holiday trip to a far away destination (New York, Cancun, among others).

    The career opportunities at clinical professionals are very transparent and opportunities are given to employees who are willing to put in the work to be given them. Often you can see people coming in as resourcers and be promoted to senior consultants within a period of 2- 3 years.

    Back office staff get clear targets set and receive their promotions when these are met. Clinical Professionals has to date 3 employees who came in to back office on a government apprenticeships and are now full time working employees. Again through hard work...

    All in all a good company to work for.

    Cons

    I can understand that sometimes the pressure on achieiving targets can be high. These are however set to motivate employees to keep developing and raise their skills to the next level. Usually in the cases that an argument arises or an employees choose to exit the business is when they are simply not willing to give that bit extra to the company. If you are however willing to work on your own future I am sure that the company will support you, set personal goals in line with goals of the company so both parties can benefit to the max.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Recognize hard work and keep pushing the business up to the next level. The only advice what I would give is also keep communicating with less-performing employees. Check if there is anything that they need to get motivated and give it their all to the business. I can appreciate that not everybody responds in the same way to high pressure and sometimes a tailored approach can help employees grow.
