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

Pros

Medical benefits and 401K --nothing else positive.

Cons

Only here 3 months and burned out already (I have over 10 yrs. experience working at other CROs and this is the worst). Work load is ridiculous with no time to come up for air. 12+ hr. days and working weekends/holidays. Line management support is a joke. You are thrown into it--sink or swim. Too many SOPs that totally bog down what you are trying to accomplish--waste of time and too confusing to read with pointless diagrams and "swim lanes". Beware about asking questions because you won't get answers. Hand off of studies from colleagues is non-existent. No information about where the study is, what the issues are, etc. Horrible communication. All I can say is DON'T WORK HERE!!!

Advice to Management

Hire more people so work can be more evenly distributed.

    Pros

    Multinational environment with group interaction globally. The company is small enough that you get a sense of family. Good colleagues,

    Cons

    Nepotistic and unfair promotions makes it difficult if you are trying to make a career. Pay scale is in the bottom half percentile.
