    I have been working at Medpace full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a company that values its hard working employees! They promote from within. Excellent management- both middle management and upper management. The training program is continually growing and developing to accommodate for a department (data management) that is growing rapidly. There is a very positive work environment in the Data/Biometrics department where management cares about the work/life balance of its employees. If you work hard, you get promotions, salary increase, bonuses etc. PTO is incredibly generous from the start. Free lunch- varieties of salads, sandwiches, dips etc and free soda/coffee/tea. Free on-site gym and fitness program. Security is now in-house and on-site 24/7 (they provide escorts to your vehicle if needed, as well as assistance with car problems in the lot). The building itself is always perfectly clean thanks to a wonderful maintenance staff, with an open floor plan and a lot of windows (which allows for employees to work in an environment flooded with natural light).

    Cons

    The company is growing quickly but is working hard to develop its training program to ensure new employees don't feel overwhelmed and under-trained.

  9. COVID-19

    "Reckless"

    2.0
    Former Employee - TMF Administrator 

    I worked at Medpace full-time

    Pros

    PTO is good and they don't rely heavily on contractors

    Cons

    They are not careful when it comes to covid-19. I saw people come in with symptoms and they were allowed to stay and work. I had co-workers who went out to bars over the weekend. I heard people talk about how they caught covid at work. When an outbreak happens, the department that has an outbreak will leave work for a couple weeks, but everyone who works in the same area as them will still come in. There are many things within the company that don't make sense unless you're assuming they really don't trust their employees. I think it's safe to say that almost no one is trusted to do their work. Normally, I can deal with that. In the context of a pandemic, it's awful to make people risk their lives for the sake of being watched in an office instead of letting them work from home. Do not work here if you are concerned about the pandemic at all.
