Pros

PXL has state of the art technology to perform your job more efficiently, good communication network and organized. They have acquired and/or merged with other CROs to grow to about 11k employess.

Cons

For my situation as a CRA there was not a quality of life balance, once you leave it takes months to close out outstanding expense reports, unrealistic travel expectations and metrics. Quality issues with monitoring often slipped through the cracks. Managers seem to be too intimidated to give you honest feedback in favor of playing games with site assignment and offerring more training, with hopes the performance issue will improve.

Advice to Management

The relationship with the separated employee is just as important as the relationship with current employees.

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

    Pros

    The heads of global data operations, global statistics, and NA biostatistics are awesome. There are great people in biostats and SAS programming, they pick up the tabs for errors passed down by data management. Most project teams are great, except for some DOLs.

    Cons

    Bunch of I-3 contaminated directors have poisoned the environment. They suck up to their bosses and trashes whoever they can, play politics behind doors, and will stab you from behind. They have no understanding of the technical work and what blinding means. Some of them are outright rude, contentious and bullies.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire any I-3 refugees, they are all toxic.
