    Pros

    Trains people with no experience- good way to get into the industry

    Cons

    Tends to overload senior CRAs with too many studies. Travel amount can be a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people below. A lot of people would like to stay with the company but when there are no changes its hard not to look elsewhere.

    I worked at Medpace full-time

    Pros

    One of the few companies who will help get you through the door. Their training curriculum (i.e. activities, videos, powerpoints) are extensive and incredibly helpful!

    Cons

    Aside from getting a solid foundation, there's not much more that can be said in a positive light for this company. Almost everyone I knew from there has already left (within 2 years). I realize CRA turnover is fairly high, in general, but experienced monitors and management seems to cycle through like a revolving door at Medpace. Work-life balance is great because there's not enough work for new CRAs. Real work (i.e. monitoring) doesn't really start flowing in until around the 2 year mark so from 6 months to 2 years, your kinda puttering around doing other departments' jobs on 'rotations' (such as data management work, QC, etc.). My advice: get your time and get out. Waiting around likely wont help much but getting another position with a sponsor will!

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring newbies at such a low rate and in such numbers. You wonder why the company has no work, it's because you cant fight to get SO many employees without experience on a project. If that's the case, OK! But, deal with that instead of continuing to dig your own grave. Appreciate the employees you already have and treat them with respect by not breathing down their neck and taking away every little incentive they have to stay. THEN, maybe, you'll see some experienced monitors actually stick around a bit to even out your average CRA's experience level.
