Former Employee - Research Associate in Bethesda, MD

Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Interesting work, opportunities to travel, budget and time allocated for staff to attend conferences, nice colleagues (aside from management), great support staff

Cons

Long hours, frequent cycles of staff turnover, lack of training for new hires, upper management without experience in management, lack of mentoring, unfairness in promotions - lack of consistency in promotions, emotionally unstable research leaders who curse at staff and send derogatory emails to the teams. Poor communication from senior management. Less generous benefits since MEDCO acquisition. Unrealistic utilization rates given work responsibilities.

Advice to Management

Be responsive to employee's feedback.

    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Blue Bell, PA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Only positive is some nice coworkers

    Cons

    Job totally different than what is portrayed in the interviews. Job description, management, and salary changes shortly after started. No upper management support for what is needed to get the job done (despite what they say in the interviews). Upper Management takes credit for the work of others. Direct retaliation when several employees go to HR or managers with feedback of no support from upper management. Company structure set employees up for failure before you even start and will sabotage your career.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, get evidence / proof of work done before give credit to some people especially when consistent complaints were brought up by several people reporting to specific individuals
