No opinion of CEO

I have been working at PAREXEL full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Established company.
Met great people who share the same frustrations and are the ones who will offer help.
Great location, away from the city.

Cons

To many systems in place that do not work well with each other.
Too many chiefs, not enough Indians.
It's sink or swim and many hours spent looking for answers within many different company based Senior and Line Managers unable to provide help or answers, due to their own workload or lack of knowledge.
Many wasted hours looking up answers
Finger pointing is common practice for Senior managers and leaders for their own mistakes.
Work life balance becoming more and more non-existent.
Super-users? Seriously, this is obsolete.

Advice to Management

The top chiefs need to experience and have a true understanding of the day to day struggles and challenges that the staff beneath them experience, many of which could be avoided to increase productivity. There are employees who have the passion, drive and potential but all too often, these ones are overlooked and end up leaving the company. It's frustrating to witness this. More focus needs to be placed on project assignment, when possible align the responsibilities with one who is more expert in that role.
