    I have been working at Medpace full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great perks like free lunch (mostly salad), free fitness classes, on-site gym, flex time, casual dress. Company is working on standardizing training as they grow quickly. Can advance quickly if you put the work in.

    Cons

    Atmosphere depends greatly on your supervisor. Some managers are not great people supervisors and need more training. Benefits are a bit expensive.

    Pros

    I love the work environment at Medpace. As a recent grad, I could not think of a better place to work. There is a young demographic working environment, complimentary lunch every day, a free on-site gym with fitness classes, a casual work environment, flex-time, great opportunities for growth, and many more wonderful perks. I have enjoyed my time here at Medpace thus far and don't plan on making any changes any time soon.

    Cons

    My only suggestion for improvement in gaining new employees would be the compensation package.

    I have been working at Medpace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CRA position allows you to work from home and travel the country. CRA bonus promotes more travel as well.

    Cons

    Potentially some down time after CRA training and getting assigned a study. I feel it's based on luck really.

    It seems that your opportunity to excel in the CRA role is dependant upon your manager and their opinion of you. With that being said, a good work ethic, being transparent and open to criticism will allow you to grow.

    Don't micromanage and trust employees to perform well.

  10. "Project Manager"

    I worked at Medpace full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of any. The morale and the working climate are so oppressive-its immediately palpable on the first day! Don't take a job there. They are hiring so many people so fast and people are quitting and getting fired so fast!

    Cons

    The leadership are only interested in themselves. They will say absolutely anything to a potential customer/sponsor to get business. They routinely take on projects they have no expertise in just to make a profit. They do not have the software resources necessary to execute projects properly. My department used third party, free software from the internet to produce data for some of the projects. All of this is carefully covered so as not to be discovered on an audit.

    Advice to Management

    Stop destroying careers.

    I worked at Medpace full-time

    Pros

    Young corporate culture, many free perks (e.g. workout classes, gym, lunch), newer office building, training program for CRA's new to the industry.

    Cons

    They are a very manipulative and back-stabbing company, they convince you that you will be hired as a new CRA and complete their training with plenty of work to be completed, but that is not the case. Upper management does not value newer employees or those lower on the totem pole. It's unfortunate that I accepted a job here. If you want long term employment do not apply here!

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring CRAs when you know there is no work for them. There should not be job postings on this site or any site looking for new CRAs because you don't need them. You have plenty of CRAs sitting at their desks doing nothing.
