    I worked at FutureSearch Trials full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of bad reviews of this company, but I don't think they are all fair. FutureSearch is a small research company that works very hard to be great at what it does. It is a fast-paced environment, as most research is, and a lot of learning is done on the job. This is what I think turns most people off. Also, being a small company, there are not an endless amount of supplies like you find at a large corporation, but we were never lacking what was necessary to complete your job. If you are someone that likes to be busy and wants to do challenging and rewarding work daily, this is a great place!

    Cons

    The only downside is that there is not a whole lot of room for growth, since it is a small company.

    I have been working at FutureSearch Trials full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There were a few very dedicated, exasperated employees that, for the sake of mutual lamentation, made coming into work not entirely painful.

    Cons

    Where to begin?

    Extremely disorganized workflow and operations processes.
    Virtually nothing in the way of onboarding or training.
    Unresponsive, frequently absent management.
    Unmanageable workload, mixed with an overly full patient schedule.
    Poor Compensation.
    Outdated equipment and serious lack of basic office supplies.
    High rate of turnover.
    Clinical negligence.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than siphoning as much profit as possible from this ethically dubious operation, invest some of the revenue into paying your employees an appropriate wage and hire more employees to alleviate chronic understaffing. Provide, at the very least, the minimum materials requisite for a legitimate business enterprise. Create an HR department or at least an HR manager.
