    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits package is excellent, with a "cafeteria style" system that lets you pick what you want from a selection. The salary is ok. We've had reasonable pay rises, but that seems to vary across depts.

    Cons

    In 1 word PAREXEL. Our corporate overlords have instilled an unhelpful attitude in all their minions. This leads to level over non-cooperation, people unwilling to be flexible, lack of people willing to take the initiative & so-one.

    I'm left feeling like I'm the only who cares about my job. I get no feedback from management. It takes 6 months to decide what my goals are for the year and then I have to decide what they are.

    Advice to Management

    You need to encourage your line managers & staff to take the initiative & to take responsibility for what they do. They need to be told, ironically, that they are not mindless automatons, only following orders.

    Pros

    a great place to put your feet at the door if you want to work for a CRO
    a good level of cooperation between regional hubs and other offices

    Cons

    you can burn out quite fast due to the huge workload and lack of recognition
    significant difference in compensation between staff members
    dead-end positions
    the internal structure of the company (world-wide) is very inflexible
    salaries are not competitive at all, ridiculous "increases" for non-billable staff
    performance reviews are useless. results depend on your relationship with you manager as well as the promotions
    if you work fast and well, they give you even more things to do as a "recognition" and maybe a bar of chocolate...
    having already worked there, I cannot tell one single reason why I might consider going back...

    Advice to Management

    hire managers who have great leadership skills and experience in the industry
    train your staff
    make international mobility possible
    if you are not willing to offer competitive salaries, at least you should try and care about career management
