"Learned a lot about working under a government contract."

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

Pros

The majority of the jobs with CRM are through government contracts. The salaries for these jobs can be very good.

Cons

As with all jobs that are subject to a government contract, if they contract is not renewed , you can lose your job without severance or even warning.

Advice to Management

Try to ensure that you have other jobs lined up for employees who may lose their jobs if a contract is not renewed.

    Pros

    The company offers decent benefits: 401K with matching, Health plan, Dental plan, Short-term (you pay for) and Long-term (they cover) Disability, etc.

    Cons

    Although you are technically their employee, you have minimal interatcion with the management. They seem more interested in keeping their funding sources happy than in the actual employees at times. They offer no paternity leave. They put a cap on the amout of sick leave hours that one can earn.

    Advice to Management

    Making the company bigger doesn't always mean that it is getting better.

    I worked at Clinical Research Management as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great salary, international travel, safe and attractive accommodation

    Cons

    Found two cases of fraud perpetrated by national staff totalling tens of thousands of dollars. No immediate corrective action was taken and HQ rather than appreciating my advice, ignored me and provided no support. I was contacted by my former employer and returned to them in spite of a twenty percent drop in base salary.

    Advice to Management

    Don't coddle national staff who exploit the company. Morale among the upright staff suffered greatly.
