I have been working at Ricerca Biosciences LLC full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I am relatively new and have worked for several CRO's from startups to market leaders. With many key improvements initiated by new senior management and very experienced consultants the decisions will yield excellent results for the staff, the strength of the company, sustainability to increase growth and will expand and bolster services for clients over the coming quarters and years. In my experience the client satisfaction and retention rates are very high compared to other CRO/CMO's. From a client perspective nearly everyone who has worked with Ricerca will agree about the integrity of the people of Ricerca, who are excellent at their work, very friendly, practical, creative, and dedicated. I feel confident stating that if you can earnestly say you are eager to do great work and have a good work ethic, then working at Ricerca can help you develop a quality career. There are a lot of bright spots here that are often overlooked. I believe Ricerca is highly underrated and is a quality organization doing great work, under the radar.

Cons

The morale is lower than it should be from past years of uncertaintity and some re-organization that should have been more effective, which is understandable.Nearly all of this is in the past. Most will find that there are always some unhappy staff members in any lab for legitimate and sometimes less than relevant reasons. It is true there were some very talented scientists who are no longer part of the team but there are also a lot of very talented, bright, experienced and dedicated scientists doing excellent work. As the company increases profitability there will absolutely be a continued need to add staff, new instruments and capabilities thereby creating new management and career opportunities as well as increasing salaries and making the schedules more flexble, etc. Most of the difficult choices have been made and the company is headed in the right direction. This is exemplified in the fact that the past few quarters have shown excellent trending growth to nearly record highs. The impact of the new changes have been difficult for many who have endured but the new trend is back to growth and the future is bright.

Advice to Management

Continue to be upbeat and communicate confidence while driving the company into increasing profitability while continuing to support excellent scientific services that consistently add value.

    Pros

    The rank and file are very talented and very helpful despite being overworked and underpaid . Friendships are easily formed with the people you work day to day with.

    Cons

    This company does not know how to retain talent. Those that remain are close to retirement or want to stay in the area because of their family, everyone else has left. Almost 20% of the company has voluntarily left since November. Once someone announces their resignation, then HR will attempt to bring the person's salary up to where it should be. The biggest raise you will ever get in your career will come when you leave this worthless place.
    Management continues to chase their tails and don't know if they are coming or going. Abbott and Costello could run this place better than the current management. Management likes to pat themselves on the back and give themselves new titles, pay raises and retain bonuses. The rank and file has not received a pay raise in 5 years and will not be receiving one this year either. Health coverage is not very good and dental coverage is 100% paid for by the employee.
    My advice to anyone thinking of applying for a job here: DON'T!
    Turn your back to this place and run... run as far and as fast as you can.
    You will hate yourself everyday you have to go work if you accept a job here.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother giving advice? My dog listens better than they do.
