    I worked at Frontline Medical Communications for more than 4 years

    Pros

    There are a lot of really great people at this company. Some supervisors are fantastic and will teach you everything that they know and do everything to help you succeed. It's a good place to start out a career, whether on the editorial or operations side. I imagine that senior managers, directors, VPs, and C-level officers are compensated well. You will get pushed out of your comfort zone but in a good way. I...

    Cons

    For those who are stuck in mid-level positions, you can, at times, bust your rear but not feel appreciated. Also, pay seems a bit low for mid-level positions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the processes that work. Stop trying to change things on-the-fly just to change things.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rockville, MD

    I worked at Frontline Medical Communications full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    After six months, you get to work from home one day a week. But with the revolving door policy few stay longer than a year so is that really worth it?

    Cons

    The toxic work environment and revolving door policy at Frontline makes for a stressful place to work. There are no good work processes in place because of the constant changes in staff. Either management does not have the experience needed to streamline the workflow or they just don't care to create a cohesive team environment. With the constant change of staff -- co-workers either leaving or new folks coming in to...

    Advice to Management

    Hire new managers who have more experience and know how to lead. Get rid of HR -- they are worthless.

    I worked at Frontline Medical Communications full-time

    Pros

    Lighter work load compared to other jobs, sometimes too light.

    Cons

    Not a lot of direction is given at this company. The higher ups mainly work from home. Would not recommend applying here or refer someone here.

    I have been working at Frontline Medical Communications

    Pros

    Paid vacation and time off.

    Cons

    Please know that I usually do not write reviews, but this one is warranted, and while it may seem that I am using this site to vent, I am generally happy in workplace settings. My review of Frontline Medical Communications (FMC) may not be indicative of the company as a whole, but it certainly is my experience. Generalized statements were used for obvious reasons. With a lot of new hires coming through the door at...

    Advice to Management

    Do less belittling and more educating. Take management classes to improve employee morale. Respect your colleagues who depend on your direction.

      I have been working at Frontline Medical Communications for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Experienced, knowledgeable, hard working, great group of people. Most work well together to achieve the best results. Depth and breadth offerings.

      Cons

      Limited or misallocated resources. Goals do not align throughout, starting from top down. Those out for themselves disrupt/derail efforts of other team members. Objectives not well defined and often change to quickly. Unrealistic expectations.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on core objectives and achieve excellence with existing developments/products/services before moving on to new ones. If you want to be the best, work with the best, build trust, and treat them with respect. Communicate equally, not selectively. Communicate clearly. Communicate often and regularly.
